I am thrilled and beyond excited to say that two of my paintings have SOLD at the 38th Annual Summer Arts and Crafts Show being held at the Red Barn in Sicamous this weekend. The show isn’t over yet. It is open until Tuesday at 6 p.m. so it isn’t too late to go check out all the beautiful art. My thanks go out to all the folks of the Eagle Valley Brush and Palette Club who have spent many hours working, baking and volunteering at the show.
It is time for the Sicamous Art Walk again. This year my art will be hanging at the Sicamous branch of the Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union for the month of June. “Raven Trail Boardwalk” will be one of the paintings I plan to show. If you are in the area I hope you have time to visit the various Sicamous businesses that participate and have a look at all the lovely art work done by the artists of the Eagle Valley Brush and Palette Club. Cheers, Susan Feniak
The Blue Vase Original art by Susan Feniak. Golden Acrylic on 20″×20″ canvas. It was time for me to do something different. Hope you like it. Cheers, Susan
“The Blue Bike” original art by Susan Feniak. Lately I have been surrounded by people I refer to as “me” people. Self centered self serving folks that do not realize there is a consequence for their actions. So today it was important to escape to my happy place. You know get into the zone. This painting is the end result. Have you ever stepped back from what you have been busily creating and known you have “done good”? It’s a giddy feel good thing. I haven’t had that feeling for awhile but today I know I “done good”. See me smile? PEACE
FOR THE BEAUTY OF IT

“The Puddle” original art by Susan Feniak. Golden Acrylics and Golden Heavy Gel medium on 20″×20″ canvas. Okay so officially this one drove me right batty! I had a vision in my head but transferring that vision to canvas proved difficult. That being said I had a grand time mucking about with the heavy gel medium. There is a lot of texture on this canvas! I am going to call this one done, for now. Cheers Susan.
“Pansy Chain” Original art by Susan Feniak. Experimenting and imagining….
Imagine if you will, a warm sunny day, a picnic basket, a blanket spread on the green grass and the time to do the more pleasurable things in life like make a flower chain. Can you smell that green grass? Hear the birds sing? Told you I was imagining. The experimenting? Well this painting sat on my easel for an age. I started it, left it, tweaked it, left it and then I decided to experiment. I had fun playing with different materials that included spray on glue and tissue paper. Now you can imagine what kind of mess I got myself into. But no worries, its all about the fun!!

“Yellow Pansy” Original art by Susan Feniak. Acrylic on 18″ x 18″ box canvas. A lot of texturing, splattering and generally good old messy fun ensued while creating this ray of sunshine on a January day. It has been awhile since I painted anything. It has also been awhile since I visited you my WordPress friends. I do hope everyone is having a good winter. Cheers, Susan
