Bits and Pieces

My painting “Give Up?” Has gone to a new home. The owners are birdie lovers. Yesterday I was volunteering at Gallery One Fifty in Sicamous. Being a soggy wintery day not too many people were out and about. I had time to paint a panda family in celebration of our impending family day holiday weekend. Time dragged on to a quick painting of a a hippo. She was gazing at me from the Telus wall calendar. The star of January 2018.

With all that I will say I am gone on hiatus for a wee while. Enjoy the rest of your winter. Spring will come, it always does. Cheers Susan


Hearts Desire

My latest birdie creation is singing to his hearts desire. Another in my Valentine card series. Artist Susan Feniak. Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors on Strathmore card stock.

Flamingos at Christmas?

If you were wondering what’s next, no worries.  I knew all along.  It had to be Flamingos.  The perfect follow up to Christmas elephants and giraffes.  It is snowing where I live today so I had to think of warmer places. These two helped. Artist Susan Feniak.  Original art using Koi watercolour on Strathmore card stock. 


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
