Cards and more Cards…

It’s a rainy day here. A perfect day to make some more “one of a kind cards”. “Duke and Princess”. Years ago I did a painting similar to this one. At that time I considered it a turning point in my watercolor work. I left it up to the viewer to decide which one is Duke and which one is Princess. I am doing that again this time.

“Fiona” is “Hamish’s” sister. You may remember Hamish from last year. He was a 9″ x 11″ painting. Now hanging in a friend’s home. Fiona is a card I made for another friends birthday. Fiona seems to have managed to get herself into the same predicament as Hamish!

Artist Susan Feniak. Watercolor, gouache and ink on Strathmore card stock. 4″ x 6″.

“Lovey”

Meet “Lovey”. From the moment I started drawing this dog I knew his name would be Lovey. In my imagination he is an oldster with kind and knowing eyes. He also has a constant smile. If you haven’t guessed yet, Lovey got his name from the heart on his forehead. Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolors and ink on Fabriano paper.

Working on cards…

Juno

I have been working on cards lately. There are several family birthdays and events coming up. I still like sending cards and enjoy making them. “Juno” is based on a painting I loved in the Artists Magazine March/April 2021 issue. The original was done by artist Johne Richardson. I couldn’t resist Juno’s expression and needed to recreate it. The other two cards are self explanatory. All three cards are QoR watercolor, ink and or gouache. Artist Susan Feniak. My cards sell for $10

“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
