Fall Landscape Tree Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 9x12 Autumn Painting

I might live in Florida, but in the fall, I want to see orange and red trees.   So I always head to North Carolina for my autumn fix.  Well technically, it is still autumn!



Purchase Here
I call this painting "Big Brother" for obvious reasons.  It was really the small dogwood tree that caught my eye.  How could I miss it....right outside my window?

detail


Fall colors can be so bright, it is easy to overdue them in paintings.  My goal here was to paint something believable even though my eyes and my brain we telling me it could be brighter.





Thanks for visiting today!

Wildlife Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, "Gray Squirrel" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil SOLD

Have you ever tried to photograph wildlife?  I have, and consider it an exercise in frustration.  Many blurred images later, my friend and photographer, Ted Fuhrer, offered me the use of his images.  Thanks so much, Ted.

SOLD
This little guy looks very inquisitive and ready to bolt at the least movement.

  I enjoyed experimenting with painting his fur and directing the viewer's eye.  The animal is much the same color as the background in this scene.

 I put it in one of my black frames.  They seem to work perfectly for just about any painting.

Happy day to you!

Four Seasons Abstract Painting - Autumn, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 4x12x.75" Oil

Today I am posting the 3rd of my abstract Four Seasons Series, Autumn.

 My goal was to represent each season, in an abstract form, using only color.  With this piece, I was thinking of pumpkins, falling leaves and shockingly blue skies.

Above is spring.

Pansy Painting, Flower Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Perky Pansies" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil, SOLD

On a cold January morning a flower painting seems perfect to start the day.

SOLD

This little piece sold at our group Christmas sale last month.  Thank you Helen Wheatly for your purchase and your very kind words.

When I see pansies, one of my favorite flowers, I always remember coming to visit my grandmother.  We lived in Ohio and a winter trip to Florida was always welcomed.  My grandmother would always have her yard planted with pansies, which are a winter flower in Florida.

Stay warm today....wherever you are!

Seascape Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Wave Painting, "Wall of Water" 16x20x.75" Oil SOLD

Lately, I have been painting seascapes.  I always love painting and viewing seascapes.  It's almost as soothing to me as a trip to the beach.

SOLD
 Of course, the first step for me IS a trip to the beach.  I  pick a day with my trusty camera and head for the sand.  I count myself lucky if I get a few interesting shots.

detail
For this painting, I used images from a trip to Barbados.




For the time being, I have hung this on my studio wall.  It transports me to the sea each time I see it.
Isn't art wonderful?!

Thanks for viewing my art today.

Marsh Landscape with herons, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 9x12x.75" Oil

This little painting on linen, is a study for a 30x40" commission that I am working on.


purchase here
190 + shipping

I painted several small studies, until the client was happy with the composition.


I think this has a slightly "romantic"feel about it, quite different than my usual pieces.  I kept the brushwork and the colors softer than my usual works.

When I first started painting, there were so many rules to learn.  I never knew what the finished piece would look like and usually started without a specific feel in mind.  After all these years, I am finally feeling a little control in my work, but, oh so much more to learn!

I know for me, this is the appeal of painting, always trying to challenge myself and escalate my skills.  Very frustrating and also very rewarding and ALWAYS interesting!

Have a great day!

Dog Portrait, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 16x20x1.5 Animal Painting, SOLD

Today, I am posting a commission painting.  I find that doing a commission is a whole different ball game.  Do you agree?
Add caption

 The client was asking for three paintings of his two dogs.  One of each, and one of both animals.

detail
SOLD

This is the first painting.  I always second guessing myself when I work on a commission.  Does the client want this, or do that want that.  Is it too dull for them, or too bright, or too much detail, or not enough.  It is hard guessing what a perfect stranger would like!

Add to that the dreaded deadline!  In this case, I had only a short time to complete the artwork, due to my schedule.  What if I failed and produce a suitable painting in the allotted time?

While commissions are stressful for me, I always welcome them.....I just have to remeber the sense of accomplishment I have, when the project is accepted by the client.

I believe a little stretch is good for everyone, especially us artists


Thanks for reading my blog today......and keep painting!

Abstract Painting, Four Seasons Series - Winter, Small Abstract Oil Paintings, 4x12x.75" Oil on Canvas

This is the final installment of my Four Seasons Series, Winter.

With each painting, I tried to capture the feeling, of the season of the year, using only color.  It was a fun project to do.

Winter
 This is not a good picture of "Winter" The actual painting has much more color variation and saturation.  Try as I might, I could not get a better image.

Spring

Tried to capture that "spring" feeling of new grass, flowering trees etc.

Summer

Summer...hot and salty....time for the beach!

Autumn

Autumn, falling leaves against bright blue skies.
Thanks for viewing my art today!

Daily Painting, Floral Art, Small Oil Painting, Sunflower Painting, "SunnyFlowers" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil

Don't you just love sun flowers?  What could be unlikable about a giant flower, one you have to look up to?  Sunny, bright and full of energy with their big brown eyes and bobbing heads....they always make me happy.

purchase here
100 + shipping
 I wanted to do  a tribute to them, something free and full of movement.  I worked with my palette knife and tried to pop the color.  I left plenty of texture because I want this painting to be touched.



I enjoy my work in simple black frames.  A black frame is always complimentary, it showcases the painting so well.

Thanks for viewing my art today.

Daily Painting, Small Oil Paintings by Carol Schiff

I wanted to do a short post, and show you my ad on Folt Bolt.  What is Folt Bolt you ask?  Basically an online advertising agency out of Australia.  I found them on Facebook  and decided to give them a try.  I think it was worth it as it received over 600 likes.



I also wanted to show you this photo of a client's husband receiving his birthday present.



I love when a client takes the time to express how pleased they are with their new painting.  The little girl, who is the subject of the painting, looks pretty happy too.  

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

SWAN REFLECTIONS, SOLD


Until a few years ago, I was a runner. Now, with back problems and a bad knee, I walk for exercise. There is one special route I like, no traffic and no scary dogs. While walking this route I pass a pond with two lovely swans. Usually I go in the morning and they just sparkle in the sunlight. This is a pastel I did of one. It is 9x11, matted to 16x18.
