Sproink and Frisk Out and About

original art by Susan Feniak  acrylic on 12” x 12” box canvas

As you can tell I have been completely side tracked by Killdeer chicks.  I find them cute and fun to paint.  Goodness knows we all need a little fun in our lives.  Hope you enjoy looking as much as I did painting them. Cheers, Susan Feniak


“Sproink” the baby Killdeer

original art by Susan Feniak  Water colors, water color pencil, pencil and archival Ink on 8.5” x 11”  paper.

This one is for my friend Cathy.  Just to make her smile.  Maybe someday I will make an acrylic painting of this bird just for her but in the meantime I hope she enjoys this fellow as much as she enjoys the photo!!

Cheers, Susan Feniak


My Pink Pond Lilies

Original art by Susan Feniak  Acrylic on 18” x 24” box canvas

Finished! This painting is now on view at Blondies Cafe here in Sicamous. $200 will get you this painting!
As soon as I saw these two beauties in my pond this summer I knew I was going to have to put them onto canvas.  These days there hasn’t been enough time to enjoy being happy at my easel.  Today I made that time to play.  The overwhelming need for something beautiful and good in my life and the urge to escape into painting la la land overtook me.  It felt good and I think the end result shows.

Let me know what you think.  Cheers, Susan


In Progress

A first for me.  Sharing my work while it is still in progress.  But I just wanted to let everyone know that I have finally found some time to spend at my easel.  Can you see me smiling?

Cheers, Susan


A painting gets a new home!

Today my painting “A Lazy Eagle River” got a new home.   A Happy 60th Birthday present to my sister, Kathy!  Since I think it is one of my best paintings to date and a particular favourite of mine it is a special enough gift for a 60th celebration.  I know it has a good home and will be enjoyed.

Cheers, Susan Feniak

Another Doodle from Hermits Bay

Just home from 11 sleeps on board “Lifeline”.  What a grand way to spend ones vacation time.  This is the only drawing or doodle I managed to produce the entire time.  That should say just how much of a vacation we were enjoying!  I will get back into normal just as soon as I can.  It may take awhile!!!

Cheers, Susan


“The Dream Was”

Original art by Susan Feniak  acrylic on 16” x 20” box canvas.

Recently my Mother expressed an interest in having one of my paintings.  She told me which wall she would like to hang it on and which paintings she preferred.  We settled on “The Homestead”.  But then I started to think about my Mother and the things she likes.  She has often referred to a dream that was to be a part of my parents retirement years.  That dream was to retire by the water somewhere and live in an “A” frame house or cabin.  Sadly that dream has never come true.  I have attempted to paint that dream.  Not an easy task because this is my concept of what that dream may have been and not perhaps what my Mother has envisioned all these years.  If nothing else it is bright and cheery and it includes some of my Mother’s favourite flowers, yellow daisies.

Cheers, Susan
