The Gang Is All Here

Original art by Susan Feniak  acrylic on 12”x 24” box canvas

Well the gang was all here!  I see Frisk has decided to run away.  It is hard to corral a gaggle of Killdeer chicks.  Or so it would seem.  Sproink, Doink, Fuzzle and Goink are still here.

It was another rainy day and another chance for me to play.  Oh happy day!

Hope this one brings a smile to your face!  It has mine.  Cheers, Susan Feniak


Rainy Day Musings

Original art by Susan Feniak  It was a two painting day!  Being unable to get motivated and work in my office I decided to spend a quiet day with my art supplies.  I played with my water colors, water color pencils and archival ink.  Since I am lucky enough to have several sketch books I was able to work on one sketch while the other one dried.   The first painting is of the field at the end of our street.  I admit to using some artist discretion and added a barn and path where there was neither.  It is a rather neglected weedy field.  Every year someone bales it and then leaves the bales to moulder away until next years crop.  I am certain the bales are homes to many a furry creature come winter!

The second painting of the day is another of my Killdeer chicks that I have grown rather fond of painting!  May I introduce you to “Goink”.  He is a rather long legged wee chap.  If you were to ask me I would also say irresistible!

I could not have spent my quiet rainy day in a better way!  How about you?

Cheers, Susan Feniak



Sproink and Frisk Out and About

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

best A Lazy Eagle River
