#WorldWatercolorMonth Day 15 prompt “Effervescent”. This is beyond bubbly and effervescent. Maybe the boats name is Effervescent?! Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolors and Pixma Micron ink on Strathmore card stock. 4″ x 6″.
This past weekend I sold a painting. “Waves Brilliant Dance”, found a new home. I am always grateful to have someone like my art enough to hang it in their home. I appreciate the fact that art is a personal thing. Thank you to the new owners.
Now, I need to announce that I have new art promotional cards. And I need to thank Hooked Decor and What Knots in Sicamous for displaying my cards again this year. Check out the store. It is full of lovely decor items and inspiration for interior decorating. You can’t miss a real houseboat that is an actual store sitting beside the Trans Canada Highway in Sicamous. A favorite spot for browsing and getting decor ideas for me. Truly an inspirational place to visit.

“Tropical Daze” is framed and ready to hang in someone’s home. I have included a couple of photos of my process for you. Palette knife painting is different from my usual brush work. I do enjoy playing with a palette knife. It’s very different and makes for a lot of texture. I also used cheesecloth and when I used a brush it was loosely, almost carefree. The scene reminds me of a tropical getaway. Something I didn’t get to enjoy this winter. Maybe next year? In the meantime dreaming and remaining hopeful will suffice. Cheers Susan

“Tropical Daze” is the title I have given to my latest fun painting. After another set back I am forging ahead with my art. I won’t let rejection get me down, not this gal. This is a brand new painting on my easel, still drying. I certainly enjoyed using my palette knife while creating this piece. I used a palette almost exclusively. There is very little brush work. I did make use of some cheesecloth to add different texture, especially to the clouds. All in all great fun. It seems that these days if I am not thinking about spring I am thinking about some tropical paradise. Or so it would seem by my artistic endeavors. My new easel is no longer new looking. Tropical Daze is acrylic and gloss medium on a 20″ x 20″ gallery canvas, framed with a metal white frame. Asking $200

World Watercolor Month Day 26 prompt “Favorite Song”. We are a music loving household. That made it difficult to choose one song. There have been so many artists that we have listened to over many years. Our play list is long and varied. There is one song that I sing to myself often enough to single out and that is Rhythm of My Heart by Rod Stewart. The verse and the bagpipes pull at my heart. I created this painting with QoR watercolors and Pixma Micron ink on Strathmore card stock.

Water water everywhere! I am naming my latest water themed painting ” The Zone”. Simply because I got into a zone whilst painting it. By the time I decided that it was finished I was sure hours had passed. Or at least the entire afternoon. It had only taken me an hour and a half from start to finish. Does this happen to any of you?
Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on a 12″ x 24″ gallery canvas. Colors used were Light Green (yellow shade), Green Gold, Cobalt Teal, Azurite Hue, Cerulean Blue Chronium, Titanium White. All favorites of mine.

“Seaside Moment”. I think that will be the name of my latest painting. I don’t as a rule paint people or children. I decided to challenge myself and tackle my nemesis. And it is on a bigger canvas too. Nothing like challenging oneself and having fun while doing it. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 24″ x 24″ x 1.5″ thick canvas. Asking $350.00 plus shipping.
Work in progress on my easel. It’s waiting for me to finish. After several beautiful sun filled days yesterday we had clouds with showers. It was an art attack kind of day. I am never sure if I should share my works in progress. Being self taught my progress could seem very wrong to the experts. But it works for me. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 24″ x 24″ canvas.
“Higuera Blanca Breakers”. While visiting Mexico this past winter I was inspired many times. Perhaps the beach we visited with friends while at Higuera Blanca inspired me the most. It had been a wild windy morning and the Pacific Ocean had whipped itself into an amazing show of powerful frothy surf. Standing on the beach left one feeling dwarfed by the size of the breakers. It was exhilarating. Froth, salt spray, wind and all.
Since our stay in Mexico I am struck by how life has changed. Not just for me personally but for everyone. This is a worldwide crises that includes us all. New expressions like self isolating and social distancing have become our new normal. Being house bound isn’t a difficult thing for an artist. It provides extra hours for one to be creative. There is no fear of boredom. There is no opportunity for that thought to enter our busy minds. For those that are struggling with being “stuck” at home may I suggest that you get yourself some crayons and paper and draw. Be creative. Creativity is the perfect escape from these challenging times. You never know you could very well surprise yourself and us.
Higuera Blanca Breakers is acrylic on 18″ x 24″ x 1.5″ thick canvas. Painted on all sides no frame needed. Artist Susan Feniak. $300
