I owe you all an explanation as to why you haven’t seen  much from me lately. In a matter of a few days we bought a houseboat, sold our home, bought another home, and sold our beloved boat. Big changes happening in our lives! There was a lot going on in August.  A gallery acceptance and the resulting three paintings sold.  The marina where we keep our boat (s) also asked me to display my art there for sell. In September I will be busy packing and culling for the downsize to a smaller home. Fit in boating time before the snow flies. And find time for art.  The photos are our new to us houseboat. “Poppies” SOLD in less then two weeks. “Bobbers” A water color I stole time for today. Please bare with me while we get our lives back on track and reorganized. I will be in touch when I can. Cheers Susan


“Keeping Up With The Jones’s” #WorldWatercolorMonth 

July 12th Do you want to keep up with the Jones’s? Why bother? Can you hear the cacophony? A bit of whimsy for you this day. Original art by Susan Feniak. QOR and Holbein Watercolors colours on Canson Aquarelle paper. 

“Red White and Blue ” #WorldWatercolorMonth 

July 4th. A busy work day for me after our Canadian 150th celebrations and art show. This one isn’t really red white and blue but close enough. Original art by Susan Feniak. Koi Watercolors on Opus Finest paper 

Sand and Seashells #WorldWatercolorMonth 

July 3rd. I love seashells and have a nice collection from wherever we go. My favourite would have to be the large conch from Belize. Since I have all ready done a painting of it I give you this assortment. Rather quickly done, original art by Susan Feniak.  Holbein Artists water colors on Strathmore Paper. 6″×6″

Welcomed Return #WorldWatercolorMonth 

July 2nd The Blue Heron has returned to our marina again this year and it is one beauty of a specimen.  Original art by Susan Feniak. Koi Watercolors on Opus Finest paper. 

“Dragonfly” #WorldWatercolorGroup 

June 26th and the prompt Dragonfly was fun. Here I give you two. One very stylish the other perhaps a little hungry.  Dragonflies kept my pond clear of unwanted insects so I  doubt they would resort to leaf eating. I bet it’s resting instead. Original art by Susan Feniak. QOR water color on Strathmore Paper.  Both are 6″×6″

“Squirt Gun” #WorldWatercolorGroup


June 24th “Squirt Gun”  This is another quick sketch but sometimes that is all a girl has time for.  When it came to water fights my weapon of choice was always Grandma’s discarded liquid dish soap container.  You see winning a water fight is more important then how the weapon looks.  That dish soap container out lasted and out squirted any other dime store version I ever bought or owned.   Of course it helped that I knew just how to maneuver that bottle to get just the right projection.  I also learned to save my skinny dime allowance to spend on candy or freezies instead.   If it was a serious water fight than nothing out did the hose and nozzle which there was always a mad race to reach before anyone else.  The prompts this month have me traveling down memory lane more often then not.  I have missed some but am trying to catch up.  Hope you are enjoying a super weekend.
