World Watercolor Month Day 23

#WorldWatercolorMonth Day 23 prompt “Home”. In the warmer months, April through October home is a boat. Not one of these but a houseboat in Sicamous. Despite wildfires and the resulting smoke it’s still home. Thank you to all the firefighters, waterbomber and helicopter crews for keeping our town safe. Such a dangerous job but so amazing to watch. From a distance. Cheers Susan Feniak


Happy New Year

Happy New Year! Wishing you all a happy, healthy and creative 2021. Let’s be positive.

This is a “selfie” of me. I don’t like getting my photo taken nor do I do selphies well. They are something I will rarely share.

The other photo is my “Top Nine” posts on Instagram in 2020. Not my choices but Instagram’s. Interesting and somewhat surprising. I was happy to see my personal favorite “Shine On” a.k.a. Trudy Tortuga made the list. Amazed my watercolors and ink were as popular as they are. Go figure.

Moving on to new projects and I am hopeful the year ahead will be better. Surely being positive will see us through. Cheers Susan


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. Cheers Susan Feniak

Going gone…

Saturday was an exciting day! “When It’s Calm” and “Lifting Fog” went to new homes. Thank you to the new owners. It’s always reassuring and gratifying when someone likes what one creates enough to hang it on a wall in their home. I am appreciative of everyone’s continued support of my artistic endeavors. Again, thank you. Susan Feniak

FYI Lifting Fog had been previously damaged but I managed to repair it. The purchaser was dutifully informed. I am not in the habit of selling damaged goods.

A White Heart

I read in our local paper this weekend about the White Heart Project. The Shuswap Hospital Foundation requested that we show our support of health care workers by hanging a white heart on our doors. I decided to participate. Since our white heart would hang on a door that very few will see I am going to hang it in a window. I doubt it matters where one hangs their white heart as long as one shows how thankful they are to all the Doctors, nurses, caregivers and support staff that are working endlessly to keep as many as possible safe and well. Thank you. Two words that seem like such a small gesture of support. Perhaps if everyone participated all the health care workers would feel our gratitude and support. Hang a White Heart on your door or in your window and give thanks for being as fortunate as we are. The White Heart is a symbol of HOPE. We are lost without hope. Take care everyone. Hugs and hope Susan Feniak
