Revised “Clean Up Crew”

After a critique I revised my painting “Clean Up Crew”. It was suggested that the waves were weak on the right so I improved them. I redefined the sky and added more birds for more interest. I think the lighting is improved on the sky, land and water near the land. Although she will most likely never see my efforts I would hope it holds her interest for longer the a few seconds. Enjoy your weekend friends. Cheers Susan

Designing Christmas Cards

Yes I know it’s early but these things take time. I have been designing this year’s Christmas cards. As per usual I am having fun. A Good thing. Hope they make you smile.


Two Days Left

There are only two days left to purchase one of my paintings at Gallery One Fifty in Sicamous. The gallery will be closing for the season on September 15th. Cheers Susan Feniak.


Kingfisher

“Kingfisher” Artist Susan Feniak. Watercolor and ink on paper. I was happy to spot a pair of Kingfishers near our boat this weekend. They were busily doing what they do best, fishing. They sit and watch the water then of a sudden will dive beak first into the water. Usually loners like our neighborhood heron a pair seemed like a bonus. Next I will have to attempt painting the local raptor an Osprey.


Heron Gathering

Heron Gathering Artist Susan Feniak. Watercolor and ink on Strathmore paper. I don’t recall ever seeing a gathering of Great Blue Herons. The ones we see are loners. One has to assume they gather somewhere and sometime or there wouldn’t be anymore blue herons. Thinking out loud. Have a good week everyone.


“Clean Up Crew”

Clean Up Crew. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Colors on box canvas. 24″×24″. As always I am inspired by the ocean, water or seaside. I recall many scenes like this while living on the west coast.


“Bird Island”

Bird Island. Artist Susan Feniak. Golden Artist Colors on box canvas. Inspired by the two Islands near Guayabitos Mexico and a demonstration by Mike Barr in PleinAir magazine I painted “Bird Island”. My version. I don’t recall what the two Islands actual names were but there were birds a plenty. Enjoy the feel of Pacific breezes and hear the waves roll onto the beach. This painting is for sale at Three Buoys Marina on Riverside Ave in Sicamous.
