World Watercolor Month Day 21

#WorldWatercolorMonth Day 21 prompt “Tactile”. Life continues despite wildfires here. Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolors and ink on Strathmore card stock. 4″ x 6″. (based on an advertisement I saw for CPSA)


Three of my favorites Gretchen the giraffe , Sam the dog and “Why Me?” have all gone to a new home. This happened earlier in the month. They went with Trouble 2, Oh Oh 2 and Henrietta. They will all keep each other company. A good thing I have a lot of other favorites to keep me company.

Oh Oh! The second time around.

“Oh Oh!” Artist Susan Feniak. This is the second time I have painted Oh Oh. Once again this was a special request and has all ready sold. The original version of Oh Oh was a greeting card. Too small for the buyer. Not to mention I wasn’t sure if I still had the card in my inventory. So a new and bigger one had to be created. No problem. It is up to me to keep my clients happy. And I do try very hard to keep everyone happy. I hope Oh Oh makes you smile too. Daniel Smith watercolors and ink on 9″ x 12″ Fabriano paper. Mat to 11″ × 14″

An experiment

This one was an experiment. I took a cue from an older Watercolor Artist magazine. Playing with looser brush strokes and different colors. The article was about painting a cat and techniques for painting fur. I couldn’t leave well enough alone and added a mouse. I named my version “Cat and Mouse Game”. Artist Susan Feniak. Daniel Smith watercolor and ink on Fabriano paper.

“Oh Oh!”

Oh Oh! What is going to happen here? I hope the mouse escapes… There are some family birthdays coming up so I am busy making cards. Have a great weekend everyone. Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolor and ink on Strathmore card stock.

Good Life

“Good Life”. A commission I completed last summer. Meant as a surprise Christmas present for the recipient I could not post this until now. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 12″×18″ canvas.

“Watering Time”

SOLD The working title for my latest painting is “Watering Time”. It is so new it is still drying on my easel. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Colors (acrylic) on 16″×20″ box canvas. I hope the flowers and scene make you think of warmer days ahead. Cheers Susan

A Christmas Giraffe?

So far there have been singing birdies, dancing penguins, polar bears, funny reindeer portraits but a Christmas giraffe? You bet! Gretchen is all ready for Christmas.  Artist Susan Feniak. Original art. Water colours on Strathmore card stock.

#WorldWaterColorMonth “Blue Eyes”

IMG_20160713_102303#WorldWatercolorMonth  July 13  “Blue Eyes”  Another first for me today.  A cat!  I should say due to yet more time restraints this sweetie was created rather quickly.  I think I would like to paint more cats and dogs.  I can see they would be a lot fun, especially their facial expressions.  This one can be for my sister, the lover of kitty’s.
