New smallish seascape…

A new smallish seascape drying on my easel. It’s acrylic on an 11″ x 14″ gallery canvas. The sea continues to inspire me and probably always will.

Seaside Idyll

Seaside Idyll is the tentative title for my latest painting. The photos are of my process and progress for the painting. For my inspiration I used an image taken by a friend of mine. Unfortunately she can’t remember where she took the shot. I do know it was taken somewhere in the pacific north west. Possibly a view from an area around or near Vancouver BC looking towards Vancouver Island in the distance or vice-versa. Regardless I found it an interesting view. When I spotted the 12″ x 36″ canvas I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. FYI This particular size of canvas is very difficult to get a good photo of!

The start to a seascape..

I have made a good start to another seascape. It has become apparent to me that I am happiest painting larger pieces and water. This after trying to increase my small pieces inventory. I will finish this one and get back to the smaller works. Having a good variety to share with everyone is important, collectors, purchasers, venues and all.

“Sail Away”

Drying on my easel, “Sail Away”. I took a bit of a break after World Watercolor Month and a very busy July. Of a sudden yesterday I had the urge to put palette knife, brush and paint to canvas. Oh joy! Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Acrylics and heavy gel gloss on a 20″ x 20″ canvas. There is a lot of texture in this one. And it was a lot of fun, I even used a credit card to spread and smear the paint. A true escape from the trial and tribulations this past few weeks have thrown at us. Let me know what you think. Cheers Susan

I tweaked “Sail Away”. Now I can say that I am happy with it. It’s ready for a frame, so that will be next. Cheers Susan


“Breakpoint”

“Breakpoint”. Artist Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 12″ x 24″ gallery canvas. There is something about a 12″ x 24″ canvas that screams paint a wave Susan. So I do. Waves fascinate me. I can sit and watch them for hours. Living on or near water for most of my life has allowed me that luxury. You can see more of my art @susanseasel #susanseasel

Sold work and a thank you…

SOLD Waves Brilliant Dance
Thank you

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” Framed and ready…

“Tropical Daze”

“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

Forging ahead… with “Tropical Daze”

“Tropical Daze”

Celebrating 10 years, here on WordPress.

“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

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
