Sea Holly

I call this plant Sea Holly. I know it has a Latin name and there are several species. It reminds me of thistles that I have painted on several occasions. I love all the pointy jagged bits. Fun to paint and that is the main part of my adventures in art. Artist Susan Feniak. Daniel Smith watercolor and ink on 9″ x 12″ Strathmore Vision paper.


Cards

I have a greeting card assembly line happening these days. Fun to do and even more fun coming up with fresh ideas. There are more then these two. Mother’s Day is coming. Cheers Susan


“Spring Tulips”

Spring Tulips. Artist Susan Feniak. QoR Watercolor on Strathmore Vision paper. 9″ x 12″. Officially Spring begins around 3 p.m. today. These tulips are my homage to that momentous event. I hadn’t played with my watercolors for ages and it felt like I had become a tad rusty. I better find more time to practice. Unframed $30.


Lupines

“Lupines” Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 12″ x 12″ box canvas. Lupins grow wild in this neck of the woods bringing lots of colour to roadsides and meadows. I am still having fun using my palette knife. Doesn’t need a frame $100.


My Old Pond

My Old Pond. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 12″ x 12″ box canvas. My use of a palette knife gives this one a lot of texture. I felt like playing and it sure was fun.


Spreading some brightness

It has been a couple weeks of dull winter weather in my neck of the woods. In the need of some brightness if not sunshine it was time to paint some colorful happy flowers. Hope they bring you smiles and some brightness too. Cheers Susan


A touch of spring

Yesterday was a snowy day where I live. I have been swamped with work related duties since the new year began. In need of some fun and brightness I painted these crocus’s. My brother gave me a lovely box of Hahnemuhle postcards for Christmas. The postcards and other art supplies that both my siblings gave me are going to be very much enjoyed.
