“Cairo”

Cairo

Say hello to Cairo. She is the second of two recently completed commissioned pet portraits. Cairo and her mom loved to go hiking especially in the snow and mountains. Re-creating a snowy mountainous scene was a first for me. Although painting Cairo proved challenging at times I enjoyed the challenge. By the time I was done I didn’t want to let her go. Always and forever a sucker for those puppy dog eyes. Thank you to Mark and Kim for giving me the opportunity and the honor of painting your beloved dogs portraits. (See “Grizz” in my previous blog) Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 16″ x 16″ x 1.5″ canvas. Painted on all sides.

Grizz

Grizz

I am pleased to say that “Grizz” is done and drying on my easel. He is rather a handsome fellow if I do say so myself. I hope when his owner sees the painting he will think so too. My only concern is that I have done Grizz justice and that he actually looks like he should or did when he was alive. I only had a photo to go by. The hazards of pet portraits. If nothing else my husband will gladly keep the painting and says he will proudly hang it in our house. See me smile? Painted with heart. Acrylic on 16″ x 16″ x 1.5″ canvas.

Work In Progress

Meet Grizz

I am working on a couple of dog portraits. This is a much loved and missed black lab named Grizzly. A.K.A. Grizz. I find that I put my heart and soul into pet portraits. I wonder, do other artists find that they do that too? When next you see Grizz I hope his posthumous portrait is completed and his owner is pleased. This is the biggest pet portrait that I have done thus far at 16″ x 16″ x 1.5″ acrylic on canvas. Wish me luck. Cheers Susan

Trio

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.


“Henrietta”

“Henry” has a “Henrietta”! I couldn’t bare to part with Henry. He is part of the menagerie that hangs on our livingroom wall. So when someone asked if they could purchase Henry I said that I would try to create another one. That’s the story behind Henrietta and how she arrived. There can be no two Henry’s. He is truly a one of a kind. I am pretty sure the person getting Henrietta will like her as much as we like Henry. Watercolor and ink on Fabriano paper. Susan Feniak


Trouble 2

Have you ever done a painting that you or your partner couldn’t part with but someone else wanted to buy? That has happened to me several times of late. I find myself doing remakes. Wouldn’t you know it the remakes are more lovable then the originals. Or so it seems to me. Sometimes. Here is the new version of “Trouble?” Or Trouble 2. I do like this version as much as the first. Bonus. A commission a.k.a. special request. Watercolor and ink on Fabriano paper. SOLD.
