REVISED “Dock Time”

REVISED “Dock Time”

Yet another revision and more tweaking and I think that I can call this one done. But you never know. “Dock Time” is the view we enjoy from the forward deck of our boat. I have taken some liberties with the scene and ignored the peripheral mess or mass of details like condos, other marinas, docks, pilings and more. Instead I have focused on this cluster of boats on the dock at Three Buoys Marina on the channel in Sicamous. The Bruhn Bridge and train bridge are in the distance. Enjoy. Cheers Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 20″ x 20″ x 1.5″ canvas. Asking $250.

“Dock Time”

Dock Time

New! Still drying on my easel. “Dock Time”. I have painted and shared the view from our aft deck of Mara Lake. This time I have painted the scene from our forward deck. I am talking of the Sicamous channel. I used a lot of artistic freedom and chose to ignore all the peripheral condo buildings, marinas, docks, and pilings. Instead I focused on one dock and the boats there. It’s Three Buoys Marina looking toward Bruhn Bridge on hwy 1, a.k.a. Trans Canada Hwy, and the train bridge. The train bridge opens and closes to let boats go through to Shuswap Lake. Acrylic on 20″ x 20″ x 1.5″ canvas. Asking $250

Water water everywhere…

“The Zone”

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.

Continuing Water Theme

SOLD! A new watercolor completed. My watery theme continues with another lighthouse. “When It’s Calm”. At the moment this looks like a tranquil spot. But my imagination tells me it can get wild, battered by storms. Why else have a lighthouse to warn unwary ships? Please do tell me what you think.

Artist Susan Feniak. QoR watercolors and Pixma Micron 02 ink on Fabriano 9.5″ x 12.5″ paper.

“Wave!” SOLD

SOLD. Thank you Becky at Three Buoys and to the new owners of Wave!. Finished and simply named Wave! This one was a blast to create. A true escape! Admittedly it started as “just” a study for a bigger painting I am planning. Start small go big!

Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics on 12″ x 16″ gallery canvas. My new “Princeton velvetouch” brushes were a joy to work with. This painting will get varnished and will be on display and for sale at Three Buoys Marina in Sicamous. $85.00

Excited

Shine On

I am excited because I had my painting “Shine On” a.k.a. “Trudy Tortuga” printed on canvas shopping bags. As you may know I do not make prints of my art. I made an exception this time. I support living a sustainable life style. Reusable shopping bags is a big part of that sustainability. The original painting Shine On is staying in my private collection. Therefore no one can be upset that I made copies of a painting they have bought. There were 7 bags available. I am down to three. So Trudy is a popular tortuga. She remains a favourite of mine and greets visitors at our door with her smile. Hopefully we can have visitors again one day soon. Stay well my friends.

“Higuera Blanca Breakers”

Higuera Blanca Breakers

“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
