Abstract Seascape Painting, 8x16" Palette Knife Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

We are happy to be back in Florida, and I wanted to mark the occassion with a new abstract.

Purchase here
I really enjoyed creating this art.  Sometimes it is nice to just get in the zone, no particular plan, and let the subconscious take over.

I love playing with paint and these represent some of my favorite colors.  I didn't plan to do a seascape, but it feels like one, especially of the tropical waters in the Caribbean Islands.

The last few months have been hectic for me.  This is just what I needed to calm me down.

Have a great day and thanks for reading my blog.

 Another fish painting.  Don't ask what kind of fish it is, I don't know.

I do know I am enjoying these palette knife paintings immensely.  I have been so intense about my brush work, that I had ignored the palette knife for months.  Now that I am working with it again, I am enjoying the freedom it brings.


Thanks for reading my blog today.

Rural Landscape Paintings | Daily Paintings | Small Oil Paintings | Country Roads by Carol Schiff | 6x6x1.5" Oil Original

This rural landscape painting is special to me.  I was inspired to do this small oil painting during my recent trip to North Carolina.

Purchase here
99.95 + shipping
 As I took my morning walks, I marveled at the beauty of the area.  Even the road I walked seemed special surrounded in green and little wildflowers.  The trees surrounding the road formed a canopy with strong light shining through.  I couldn't wait to paint the scene!

It is painted on 6x6x1.5"  gallery wrap canvases with the sides painted black.  No framing costs necessary!

I had such fun painting this small landscape painting....can you tell?  I have a companion piece too!  You can see it here:

Acrylic Abstract Pouring, Daily Painting, Gicee Print on Canvas

I am still enjoying my experiments with acrylic pourings.  It is either the most fascinating or the most frustrating activity ever!




I am quite pleased with the color on this one and also with the movement and cell formation.

We used to say, watching paint dry was too boring, but I have a hard time pulling myself away these days.  Manipulating the paint, by moving the support is always interesting, even more so when you return an hour later and find a whole new painting.

If you are interested in this process, I suggest going to You Tube, where you will find  a ton of  tutorial videos.

I am offering this, as well as others, as giclee prints on canvas, in numerous sizes, on my Etsy site.

Thanks for stopping by today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER SHELLY!

Abstract Art Print, Acrylic Pouring, Giclee Print on Canvas

We have left the summer heat behind and are enjoying the cooler mountain air.  Along with the cooler air, I have brought a desire to experiment.



Poured painting is another skill to be practiced and perfected.  On the surface, it seems simple enough, but, I find I ditch more than I save.
Technique is critical and varied, and in the end, you give up control and hope for the best.  I warn you....it is addictive!
Can you believe it will be August tomorrow?

Landscape Painting, Woodland Cottage, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil Painting

This little cottage is on my morning walking route in North Carolina.  I am also attracted to the patterns of light on this little house, snuggled up to the trees.

 The atmosphere is isolated woodlands, but in fact, this is a law office on Main Street in the town of Waynesville, NC.




I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Fall Landscape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Autumn Trees, 6x8" Oil on Canvas

How did this happen!  How could it possibly be almost autumn?  Time seems to go faster and faster each year.

purchase here





We have just returned from time in the mountains, rushing home to monitor hurricane season in Florida.  When we return to the mountains, this will be a typical scene.

It is so easy to overdue autumn colors.  Your eye tells you the intense colors are what you are seeing, but when you put it on canvas, it is not believable.  Time to tone it down a touch.  Nature is maybe not quite that bright.

Sunflower Painting, Field of Sunflowers, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil Painting, SOLD

Sunflowers always make me smile!  This little painting is no exception!

SOLD

I used both a brush and knife on this piece.  I wanted some texture, and also vibrant colors.  I tried to make the colors play off one another.


Sometimes, painting comes much more easily than others.  I painted this and one other landscape that I am happy with.........and then the bottom fell out!  I wiped  and wiped and wiped.  I couldn't seem to do anything right!  Finally I turned to acrylic pouring as a distraction.  I have been doing pouring exclusively for the last few weeks.

I am hoping this little journey into a related, but different type of work, will get me back on track again.  More to come!

Thanks for viewing my blog today!

Animal Oil Painting, "DUCKS GALORE" by Carol Schiff, 12x24" Oil. SOLD

A very nice lady from Alabama sent me  images of her family's six black ducks, along with a request that I paint them for her.

SOLD

Actually, the images only had five ducks.  One of the ducks had gone to ducky heaven and she wanted to include him (her) too.  I liked this image because all the ducks were looking in one direction.  I added the missing duck on the end, as though he had reappeared and the others were greeting him back into the flock.

If you relate to the missing duck...I hope you find your flock soon :)

"Cape Cod House with Hydrangeas" by Ann McCann 9 X 12" Oil




This 18th century home was on a little side street in Wellfleet, Cape Cod. The blue hydrangeas were blooming all round it and the home up the hill. I wish it were mine!

Palette Knife Art, "A Thistle Day" by Carol Schiff, 8x10" Oil ,SOLD

Who said weeds are not pretty???  I found these thistles on top of Grandfather Mountain outside of Boone, NC last month.

Purchase here
SOLD
Their delicate color and beautiful form was all it took for me to know I had to paint them.  However, it was 50ish, 30 MPH winds and in a very inconvenient spot, so no painting took place at that time.



Fortunately, I had my trusty traveling companion, my camera, hung around my neck and was able to capture this image.

I think that one of the most wonderful things about being an artist is that it has given me the ability to see beauty in unexpected places.   I am so thankful for that gift.

Small Seascape | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Anatomy of a Wave by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Oil Original

This small seascape is a study of a cresting wave. Ask any surfer, it's all about the waves.  Waves appear to be all the same, but they are all unique.  I am finding that out, more and more as I paint one of my loves ......seascapes.

Whispers, Intuitive Abstract by Marion Hedger

WHISPERS
by Marion Hedger
Part of the 'Connections' Series of abstracts
30x30cm acrylic on panel


Will they come closer together to hear the gossip?

Finished with a high gloss varnish and polished with wax to give a satin glow.


Framed in a black floating frame, it is ready to hang on arrival.

The overall framed size is 34x34cm and 3cm deep.

Daily Painting, Fiddlehead Fern Painting, Small OIl Painting, 11x14 Oil NFS

This small oil painting came about because of a trip I took to North Carolina in the spring. I live in Florida, so we don't get a lot of spring flowers, and when I saw this bed of ferns coming to life, I had to paint them.

NFS
I was surprised how quickly they grew, with obvious growth from day to day.
I decided to use a dark background to really highlight the ferns and keep my palette restricted to greens, blues and purples. I have been pleased with the results of this painting, which is a departure from my usual style. Blues are very difficult to photograph accurately and although the background color appears to be a deep blue, the actual color is close to a black,
This piece is available  at the link above as an original, or here as a giclee'  canvas print in the size of your choice.
Thanks for viewing my blog today.  I hope you take time every day,  to smell the roses.

Daily Painting on Sale, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painter, "Apple on the Tree", Carol Schiff artist, 6x8" Original oil

I never know what genre a painting like this falls into.  Is it a landscape?  Is it a still life?  I think it may be a landscape because it has not been "arranged".

purchase here
94.95 less rebate
This apple is from my favorite orchard in North Carolina, just outside of Waynesville.  Most of the year it is very quite there, but in the fall, it is the place to be.  The orchard also has a bakery and long, long lines exist all day, every day.  I have stood in line many times myself to buy their delicious apple cider donuts or cakes, fritters and pies.

"Crape Myrtle Shadows" by Ann McCann 20 X 20 X 1.5" Oil

"Crape Myrtle Shadows" 20 X 20 X 1.5" Oil (c) Ann McCann  2017

I pass by this building every day on the way to work. I loved the glowing crape myrtle blooms, but I kept being drawn to the shadows on the building. The building was nothing special, but the shadows were gorgeous. So, I finally painted this last weekend before the blooming ended.

Mixed Media Painting, Abstract Art, "Gold Rush" by Carol Schiff, 10x10x.75" SOLD

I was feeling the need to get abstract again and wanted to experiment with some gold leaf I had in my bag of tricks.

Purchase here
SOLD

I have to say I had lots of fun with this piece.  I wanted to keep the colors fairly neutral....black, white, gray, rust.  I had a piece of watercolor paper that had already been treated with a rusting technique, so the plan was to let some of that background show through.  I also wanted to incorporate that gold leaf.  I worked with a palette knife to get plenty of texture.  All in all, I had a great time!  Kind of like making mud patties when you were six....that same feeling. :)
