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.

Something completely different from me.

A commission

This painting was indeed completely different for me to do. I have never done any lettering, and I have decided that I don’t care to ever do it again. The grapes, wine glass, bottle and wine were something I have never tackled on canvas with acrylic paints before either. The reflections on the glass and motion of the pouring wine were fun to recreate. The purchaser gave me the words and a vague idea of what she had in mind and then pretty much gave me free reign to do what I thought best. To quote, “do that thing you do”. Admittedly I did enjoy taking her idea and recreating something out of that. Because I had never done anything like this before I gave her a screeching good deal. Lesson learned, every painting takes just as long for me to do with just as much thought going into it. Each and every painting is special to me. And most importantly I have a reputation to uphold. I try to do my very best every time. Although grateful for this opportunity and pleased to do this for a friend, screeching good deals shouldn’t happen.

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

We are in the midst of a heatwave here in BC but that hasn’t deterred the flowers from thriving. While out for my walks I have been spotting all manner of beauties, including black eyed susan’s. Thankfully not my namesake but I recently did have two black eyes from a bad fall. Good thing I heal quickly.
