Embracing spring! It snowed where I live. On April 3rd? Seriously? Time to embrace spring. I have added a new mantra, “this too shall pass”, to my all ready over used, “avoid the negative by being positive”. I hope you like this wee chick surrounded by spring colours. Stay well! Stay home. Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolor and ink on Strathmore Vision paper.
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.
Progress! As you may know I was on hiatus in Mexico for a month. We returned safely a while back but as you also know things have gone sideways in this old world of ours.
Between getting caught up with work (I work from home) and other commitments there has been precious little time for art and getting caught up with it. I started this painting before we went away. By the time I got back to playing with it I couldn’t remember my original plan. Whether that is my age or these challenging times I don’t know. This is what I am doing with what I started. If all else fails add a nest and some birdies and carry on from there. This is me and my art.
I hope all of you are okay. Please stay healthy and be safe. We can get through this crisis with our art.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! Have a wonderful day. It’s a beautiful sunny day where I live. Perfect day to be outside pottering in the garden, walking, maybe enjoying a picnic. However you celebrate this day, enjoy.
Spring Is In The Air! Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 12″ x 12″ box canvas. Again I only used my palette knife and one brush. I do enjoy the texture I get painting this way. Cheers Susan. Doesn’t need a frame $100.
Surely lambing time is a perfect sign of spring. This little darling is a quick sketch or doodlewash to celebrate yet another spring time event. Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolor and ink on Opus Finest paper. Happy spring!
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.
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.
