Still keeping busy…

Jordon

I am still keeping busy creating my “one of a kind” greeting cards. Keeping things simple. Other than puttindg a coat of gesso on a 24″ x 24″ canvas I haven’t spent any time at my easel. Not since coming home from Mexico. I haven’t felt like it. I thought that I had lots of inspiration and was ready to get busy but as soon as I stand at my easel all is lost. Perhaps I have a bit of a block happening? On the other hand I am able to create these cards. A veritable plethora of them. I am having fun with them, they make me smile. That is sufficient, for now.

Belated happy Easter

Belated happy Easter! Theodore the Easter dog appeared on one of my card creations the otherday. I meant to post Theodore on all my social media sites but somehow missed my website. I hope he makes you smile. Another tortuga made an appearance and a frog enjoying the shelter provided by a magnolia. Can you tell I am still having fun creating my “one of a kind” greeting cards?

Home and catching up…

Home and getting caught up. I think the laundry is finally done and all the household bookkeeping too. Things do pile up when one is happily enjoying the good life. Now it’s back to reality.

I have missed my art and time spent playing at my easel. It’s time to get back to it! I have so many ideas rumbling around in my wee brain. The Mexican sunshine has inspired me.

In the meantime I still have paintings that need homes. These are photos of just a sampling of what I have available. My art is all original, “one of a kind”, I do not make prints. They are in a variety of sizes and are all acrylic on gallery quality thick canvas.

If you are interested please email me for details at sfeniakart@gmail.com

Thank you.


Many thanks….

As this year comes to a close I would like to take a moment to thank everyone that supported me in my artistic endeavors. Your continued support is very much appreciated. For me this year has been one of ups and downs. And although I am not one to wish time away I am not sad to see the end of 2022. All that being said I believe that I have managed to create some decent art.

My sincerest wishes to each and everyone of you for a happy, healthy and creative 2023.

Artist Susan Feniak. All these pieces of original art were SOLD 🔴 in 2022 along with countless “one of a kind” greeting cards. I am beyond grateful. Thank you all, again.

Me, saying thank you.

Blatant self promotion.

Warning! This post is blatant self promotion of the art by me, Susan Feniak. All the paintings in the above two photos are hanging in our house. They could be hanging in yours! I ask, why not give the gift of original art for Christmas?

In this disposable society one should remember art is a forever gift. All of these pieces are original, acrylic on gallery canvas. The painting continues around all the sides of the canvas so no frames are needed.

Busy creating Christmas cards….

I have been creating Christmas cards as fast as I can. These are just a sampling of the ones I have made so far this year. No two are the same, ergo, “one of a kind”. This year my “one of a kind” cards are available for sale at Rikki Lou Who’s Gift Emporium downtown Salmon Arm BC. I am pleased to have this opportunity. Thank you for shopping local and supporting your local small business owners and artisans.

As always I hope my happy quirky critters make you smile.

New art!! “Sunny Disposition”

New art!! So new it’s still drying on my easel and I have just given it a title, “Sunny Disposition”.

It’s something bright and cheerful just for you on what is a rather dull day here in the Shuswap Lake area of British Columbia.

I have included photos of my process and progress. One photo also shows how I finish the sides of every painting I do on a gallery canvas.

Fingers crossed it cheers everyone. I do like it when my art causes smiles.

Art available…and grief ❤️

I still have lots of paintings available for sale. All anyone needs to do is email me Susan at sfeniakart@gmail.com

I dropped off 6 new “one of a kind” hand painted greeting cards at Rikki Lou Who’s Gift Emporium downtown Salmon Arm on Alexander St today as well.

We have been recovering from or trying to find our way through the grief following the death of our youngest son. Thanks to the love and support of our friends and loved ones we are finding our way.

It is almost time for me to set up my easel and escape into my art….

James William Charles Feniak December 7 1979 to August 20 2022 Love you always and forever, Mom and Dad

Small art and a new venue…

Recently I have been trying to rebuild my small painting inventory. The first two paintings are 10″ x 10″ acrylic on canvas. Can you tell that I was having fun with my palette knives?

I am pleased to announce that my “one of a kind”, hand painted greeting cards are now available for sale at Rikki Lou Who’s Gift Emporium on Alexander Street downtown Salmon Arm BC. I would like to thank the owner, Rachele for the opportunity and for supporting local artists. There are several photos of my cards above. I dropped off 15 to see how they sell. Fingers crossed. I am excited and looking forward to coming up with some more fun ideas for my cards.

My cards are all 4″ x 6″, hand painted original pieces of art. Artist Susan Feniak
