“Mara Twilight”

Mara Twilight

“Mara Twilight”. Believe it or not I have completed another painting. I am continually inspired by the views that I am fortunate enough to enjoy during the warmer months of the year. This painting is based on a photo that I took from the back of our houseboat late last summer. It had been a wet stormy day. The weather cleared as the sun set to reveal this glorious scene. I hope you like my second painting of Mara Lake completed so far this year. Okay second painting of Mara Lake in a week.

Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on a 20″ x 24″ gallery canvas. Asking $300. If you are interested in my art please email sfeniakart@gmail.com Thank you. Remember my art is original, I do not make prints.


“Hyde to Mara”

Hyde to Mara

My latest painting “Hyde to Mara”, is DONE! This painting is based on a photo I took last summer. Lunch at the Hyde Mountain golf course includes this idyllic view of Mara Lake in beautiful British Columbia. Playing golf is not for me but I will gladly enjoy lunch at the golf course just to partake of the views from many vantage points. I have been wanting to capture this particular view on canvas for some time. I hope I have done it some justice.

Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on a 24″ x 24″ gallery canvas. Asking $375 plus shipping. Painted on all sides so doesn’t need a frame. This is original art. I do not make prints. If you are interested please email sfeniakart@gmail.com


December is a busy time

December is a busy time for everyone. This year I made almost 4 dozen Christmas cards. About 1/2 of them sold the rest were sent out to family and friends. Today we had our first major snow event of the season. That meant we needed to shovel snow off our houseboat. And of course what is December without a visit with the jolly old elf himself. And yes I have been good all year. No wish list involved. Just my hope that everyone stays safe and healthy this Christmas. Cheers Susan Feniak


“Quietude”. The process, progress and changes….

SOLD Here is my latest painting, “Quietude”. Some photos of my process, progress and changes. I almost always forget to take photos of my process and progress. The Shuswap Lake, where I live, is a beautiful area. I continue to try to capture the beauty, ambiance and lighting of where I am fortunate to live. This is an early evening. A lavender sky is not unusual. Stormy weather and restless water are just as common as this idyllic scene. Some day I will try to capture those Shuswap swells and windy conditions. Fortunately those moments are short lived. Unfortunately harder to capture. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 20″ x 20″ canvas.

Tote bags, a birthday card and my oh my what morning!

A new shipment of tote bags arrived the other day. I am happy with them. I don’t normally make prints of my art but I think these tote bags will help promote my art. Heavy-duty canvas and washable. If you are interested follow the instructions below. The Heron was a birthday card for a friend. And that view? That is mine this morning. From the aft deck of our houseboat looking at beautiful Mara Lake. Happy Sunday everyone. Cheers Susan

“Overseer” from beginning to framing…

“Overseer”

My painting “Overseer”, is framed and hanging in our living room, for now. The photos will give you some idea of my process, and the actual size of the finished painting. As a rule I take very few photos of my process. I have never done a video or made a podcast. This is as good as it gets. “Overseer” is acrylic on 24″ x 24″ gallery canvas, varnished. The frame is pre-made from Opus. It’s wood and black. My reference photo was kindly provided by nature photographer Mark Schroeder.

“Overseer”

“Overseer “

Overseer, my latest painting is finished. I would like to thank nature photographer Mark Schroeder for the reference photo. This Great Blue Heron is a frequent visitor to the Sicamous Channel Shuswap Lake BC. I try to paint it’s portrait at least once a year. With this portrait I may have finally paid this majestic bird some justice. I hope you like it.

Finished “At Last”

At Last

Finished my first painting of 2021. “At Last” is our houseboat sitting pretty at Robert’s Bay on beautiful Shuswap Lake. I took the reference photo late last summer. It was an idyllic calm morning. Barely a ripple on the lakes surface. Perfect for reflections. I had fun re-creating those reflections. These days our girl is waiting for the sunny warm days to return and so are we. I am keeping this painting. It will hang in our land home to remind us of those sun and fun filled days of the past and to look forward to in the future. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas. FYI If you would like a painting of your boat, I do commissions.

WIP

My first painting of 2021 is in progress on my easel. It’s coming together ever so slowly. The photo reference is my own taken late last summer of our houseboat at beautiful Robert’s Bay on Shuswap Lake. It was an idyllic morning with the lake perfectly calm and flat. Reflections galore! Golden Artist Acrylics on an 18″ x 24″ gallery canvas. When this painting is finally done it’s not going anywhere. It will hang on our living room wall.

Sold not sold

Raven Trail Birch
Raven Trail Autumn

Sold and then not sold. Wait a minute and then SOLD. Proving to me that art is a very personal thing. Recently someone took a liking to my painting Raven Trail Autumn. Upon seeing it personally, other then via photo, decided that it wasn’t for them. Not quite right to their decerning eye. No problem, I have a lot of paintings to share. After being shown Raven Trail Birch it was, yes please. Ergo I am pleased to say that my painting Raven Trail Birch has SOLD. Thank you to the purchaser and giving my art a lovely forever home.
