Hello, I am still getting caught up posting my World Watercolor Month creations. This year I have decided not to follow the optional prompts and instead have been doing my own thing. I am however making cards again. With the exception of the birdie sitting on the daisy they are all greeting cards. I am having my usual fun coming up with ideas for this month long celebration of art.

I have two fresh watercolor and ink paintings for you today. Now that the weather has warmed up a wee bit we are spending more time on our boat. There is no internet on our boat or dock. You may not see as much of my art or get many comments or likes from me for the next while. It can’t be helped. I will do what I can when I can. In the meantime here is Zelda Zebra who has been busy since we last saw her. The pond is my imagination at play, an idyllic scene. Both pieces are watercolor, ink and gouache on 11″ x 14″ Fabriano paper. Artist Susan Feniak

“Spring’s Bounty” and “Tulip Glow” both got frames this weekend. I am fortunate to have a great friend who is happy to build frames for my art. I think she did a fantastic job. I think both paintings needed the rustic barn board look. Being a watercolor Spring’s Bounty is under anti glare glass. Don’t ask my husband how much that cost. Oops. Always get a price before ordering. Just saying. Both pieces are original and available for sale. You can see them and pricing in previous posts.
Artist Susan Feniak. If you want to contact me about my art please email email@example.com I do not respond to scam or spam emails. I have gotten too many of those nasty emails. I am saddened by people who have nothing better to with their time than try to scam or cheat people out of their money and work.
New art! “Spring’s Bounty” A watercolor this time. This is big for me, especially when it comes to working with watercolors. I had a vague idea of what I wanted to create. I didn’t draw anything, I just started to paint. My first of a few mistakes was that I chose the wrong background color. With perseverance and an arsenal of supplies I ended up with this painting as the result. There is everything on there from gouache to Daniel Smith, QoR, Derwent watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, salt, you name it. At one point I even had my oil pastels out. There came the classic moment, am I done or not? Maybe? I had a blast, especially splattering and playing with a hake brush. Hope it pleases your eye.

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.

Both SOLD Recently the original painting Lifting Fog SOLD. A good thing. Unfortunately while preparing the painting for shipping it got damaged. What to do? Paint another one of course. No choice really but give it a try. You may not realize this but no two paintings turn out the same. Artists are constantly evolving. Learning new techniques, changing styles. The original painting was done two years ago.
But I wanted to try. I had a paying client to satisfy. I believe that I managed to get it close but not exact. My purchaser has decided to buy the new version. I am thankful for her understanding. I hope she likes it as much as the original.
