“Blinged Blossoms” Original art by Susan Feniak Acrylic on a 18” x 36” canvas
I am still having fun decorating our new house. “Oh look at that there is a bare wall!” I know exactly how to fill that space. Being an artist just makes it that much easier! This painting will match the new color scheme in one of the bedrooms admirably.
Thanks for stopping by. Cheers, Susan
Previously titled, “Done?” The consensus is that the painting is indeed done. I did add some Canada Geese flying in formation but I have not taken another photo of the painting. It was a nice day for a walk along the nature trail in Salmon Arm Bay. The biggest water colour I have tackled to date. At the moment I am not sure if this one is finished or not. I don’t want to over work it. Usually I am happy or pleased with the end product. Perhaps its because this is a water colour that has me doubting. It has been fun playing and spending time at my easel.

This is the biggest water colour I have tackled to date. Another experiment. An I can do it moment. It is a work in progress but thought I could share it.

A first attempt at using my new “Elegant Writer” pens by Speedball. Admittedly an experiment. I do believe I will have a lot of fun with these pens. Thank you to Leslie White of Leslie Paints and Carol King for sharing their ideas and teaching new techniques.

Today on a makeshift easel in my new office/studio I finally had time to paint something. Believe it or not I needed just the right painting for a bathroom in our new house. The Caribbean colors match perfectly. This is a view we very much enjoyed last winter. We spent hours just sitting looking out over the beautiful Caribbean. A mile away from where we sat the waves were crashing over the Belize Barrier Reef. On a good day we could hear those waves. Fond memories indeed.
Hope you have been enjoying your summer. I am happy to be back at my easel, makeshift or not.
It has been a very busy time. I apologize for not posting to my blog or visiting yours. This has not been a normal summer. No boating so far, no typical summer activities for us. We recently sold our house and bought a new one. So for those of you that know what that is like and what all is involved you will understand. Once we are settled into our new home I hope to have more time to spend at my easel and get back to sharing my art. Soon! In the meantime, Cheers and enjoy the rest of your summer! Susan
