The power was out for around six hours today. What does a girl do other then try to stay warm? She creates.


Noisy Nest Sold

Noisy Nest went to a new home earlier this month. I lent it to a friend several months ago to hang in her home for awhile. My friend sold it. This tells me that perhaps I should lend out more of my paintings to friends to hang in their homes. They just might sale them for me. Thank you to my friend and thank you to the new owner of Noisy Nest. I am assured the owner loves it. Bonus.

Draw a bird day August

August 8th and it’s draw a bird day. Why not give you two birds? The peacock is inspired from Charlie O’Shields Sketching Stuff Activity Book, Nature. I am enjoying that book. Thank you Charlie.


“Misty Morning”

Misty Morning is my newest acrylic painting. Now available at Gallery One Fifty on Riverside Ave in Sicamous. Funny how this painting started out to be a completely different subject matter and ended up being a Heron hiding in tall weeds and grasses on a misty morning. Guess the birch trees I planned on doing will show up in my next painting. Hope everyone is having a great summer. Cheers Susan. Acrylic on 20″×20″ box canvas. Painted on all sides no frame needed. $250.00


Owl

Taking a cue from Charlie O’Shields of Doodlewash.com new nature sketching stuff activity book I did this owl. There are a lot of sketching and watercolor painting tips, ideas and activities in his book. It is good for any age young and even oldish like me. If you are an experienced artist or want to give art a chance for the first time, give this book a try. Charlie is right we were all born with the ability to draw, color and create art. Owl created by me, artist Susan Feniak. Watercolor and ink on Strathmore card stock.

Hanging Around

Hanging Around is more about reflections and the Blue Heron then anything else. A busy weekend working on assorted projects aboard our boat but I still managed to sneak in art time. Thankful for a thoughtful husband who let’s me be me. Which is hang around messing about with my watercolors, brushes and papers. Hope you had a lovely weekend too.


Show Off!

For Draw a bird day I present the Show Off! I haven’t contributed to draw a bird day for an age so thought I would this month. The 8th day of every month is for draw a bird day. Hope you have an unruffled kind of day. Cheers Susan. QoR watercolor and ink on Fabriano 5.5″ x 8.5″ paper.
