I had to bring all my art home from Gallery One Fifty today. We live and work on the shore of Shuswap Lake and the lake has decided to flood this year. As of last weekend the lake had risen 17 feet. It does come up every year. But because of a high snow pack in the back country this winter the lake is exceptionally high. Gallery One Fifty decided for safety sake that we artists should get our art out. The gallery will reopen as soon as the flood threat ends and the limitations of COVID 19 are lifted. Meanwhile I will get to enjoy one of my own paintings hanging up in our houseboat summer home. Misty Morning has always been a particular favorite of mine. FYI An artist isn’t supposed to bring all her art home especially all at once. I have no idea where I will put the rest!

Waves Brilliant Dance. My latest painting is still drying on my easel. These days the ocean and waves seem to be my muse. That comes as no surprise to me. To achieve the texture I used several different palette knives and a credit card. The entire painting was done without a brush. Admittedly this technique is hard on my acrylic paint supply. Even using Goldens soft gel gloss to extend my paint it sucked up lots. Did I have fun? No need to ask. Did I make a big mess with paint smeared everywhere, even on my phone? You bet. A joyful mess. I am pleased with the end result.

SOLD. Thank you Becky at Three Buoys and to the new owners of Wave!. Finished and simply named Wave! This one was a blast to create. A true escape! Admittedly it started as “just” a study for a bigger painting I am planning. Start small go big!

It is not in my nature to give up. “Meanwhile Back At The Nest”. This painting has under gone several rethinks and remakes. Is “rethinks” a word? It is now. I will live with this version for a few days and then decide if I am finished or not. It will need a name at some point as well. I hope you are staying well and safe. We can all get through these challenging times. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 16″ x 20″ x 1.5″ thick canvas. $250.00 Thanks for stopping by.
Thank you Rob “Ziggy”. Thank you for purchasing my painting “Dan’s Boats”. I hope it looks good hanging in your home. Thank you for making the 2019 boating season at Three Buoys fun and for all your hard work. Carey and I appreciate all that you do. Cheers
Hurry Home! This one is drying on my easel. I wanted to do something a bit different. It certainly was fun to do. Who knew a rainy city night could be fun? I had the idea rumbling around in my imagination for awhile. Putting it all on canvas was the next trick. Hope you like it. Acrylic on 20″ x 20″ x 1.5″ thick canvas painted on all sides. No frame needed. $250.00
Has my art been discovered? I ask this question because in the last two days eight of my paintings have SOLD. I am beyond thrilled my art is finding forever homes. I am grateful and thankful to the ladies that spent the time to search my website, ask me questions, select the pieces they like best and then make their purchases. The process is time consuming. One can only hope rewarding for all concerned. Now it is up to me to make sure the same ladies are happy with their purchases and that my art gets to it’s new homes in one piece. Thank you.
