Abstract Seascape | Daily Painting | "Tropical Blues" by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Oil SOLD

When I lived close to the sea, I found that it turned up in my painting in both a representative and non-representative form.  I guess this little daily painting falls somewhere between the two.



SOLD




 I painted this with a palette knife.  I like texture and feel it adds additional interest to my art.  I was thinking about the beautiful greens and blues of the tropical waters off the coast of Florida.  Further south they turn the most amazing shades of azure, but that will be another painting.

BUT A PRINT



I almost always show my paintings in black frames.  It would be hard to find an artwork that would not work well with black and it just makes the colors pop.

Start planning that tropical vacation today!

Flipper Lives! Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Dolphin Giclee Print

This was a fun painting for me.  Maybe it's the subject matter, but I smiled the whole time.

Purchase a giclee print here
 A few summers ago, we spent a few days in Key Largo, with our grandson.  The one thing he was really looking forward to was swimming with the dolphins.  He loved every minute of it and later told me he had met a life long goal by doing so.  (He was 13).

While I was watching, I snapped this shot of one of the dolphins, and have had it on my list of subjects to paint for months.

Sometimes, many times, I find myself putting off certain subjects, afraid that I am not accomplished enough to do them justice.  Such was the case here.





I am happy I finally gave it a try, and was pleased with the results.  I will have to push myself more in the future, when I find myself backing off a subject that I am unfamiliar with.

Hope you have a great day!

Life is good in North Carolina, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Blue Ridge Highway, 6x8" Oil,

Last fall, we took a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  It was a crisp, sunny day and my camera was busy clicking away.

Purchase a Giclee Print here



It's hard to go wrong with a blue and yellow painting.....it just shouts "Cheerful".  The background was painted  with a brush, but I used a palette knife on the flowers and grasses.  That's when it started to be really fun!



I feel like I was able to capture the feel of the day......I hope it made you smile!

Sunflowers and farmhouse...the perfect pairing! daily painting, small oi painting, 6x8 oil painting

Sunflowers and farmhouses, the perfect pairing!

It is a cold, gray day, here in the mountains, and sunflowers are the perfect way to brighten things up.

purchase here

Both sunflowers and farmhouses, are not uncommon, here in the mountains.  It's hard not to smile when I look at sunflowers.



Yesterday, we drove over the mountains  to Gatlinburg.  I am happy to report that things are looking up there.  Spring is taking over, renewal is everywhere.  Yes, there are still signs of the devastating fires from two years ago, but the mood is upbeat and the tourists are there.

Have a wonderful day!

"Killary Fjord with Rhodedendrons" by Lynda Cookson

This is from a mini series I did in Ireland. This one is from Leenane in Connemara where Killary Fjord is the only fjord in Ireland.

I'm thinking of doing more minis (4" x 4") soon ... perhaps of harbour scenes here in Brittany. Perhaps putting this up here will get me going!! LOL

Tropical Fish Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Palette Knife Painting

A few years ago, we visited the coral reef off Key Largo.  Although I get sea sick, when the boat is not under power, I still enjoyed seeing the colorful tropical fish, and of course, the trip out and back.

purchase here
 Beautiful turquoise waters, stunning landscapes, fabulous wildlife.....the perfect day.

 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.

Poppy Painting, Small Oil Painting, Flower Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil on Panel

You know how much I love flowers.  I love to grow them, and paint them.  Since my move to the mountains, I don't have space to grow to many....so I may be painting them more often.

Purchase Here

How could I resist these beautiful poppies?



If you have taken pictures of flowers, that you would like to share with me, I would love to see them.

Flower Painting, Spring Floral, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil on Panel

I visited the Biltmore Conservatory, here in Asheville, and found inspiration, in every direction!

Purchase Here

I was not finished with this scene!  I wanted to do another version, so I cropped my original image and returned to the easel.

(contact me to purchase this piece)

Maybe, it was the color combination, but I still had more to say.  This time I started with a complete abstract, nothing but color.  As I painted, it became a little more realistic.  I did my best to stop before over-working the piece.

Purchase a giclee print here.


I enjoyed the progression.  Which one do you prefer?

Flower Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Expressionist Art, Print on Canvas

I went to Biltmore Gardens a few weeks ago, and the conservatory was bursting with tulips, daffodil, hyacinth and other spring favorites.  I was so inspired!

Purchase here
This one one of three paintings I did with this color combination, a favorite of the Biltmore gardeners.

Living in Florida for 40 years, I'm am enjoying my first spring in the Blue Ridge Mountains, seeing many of the flowers I remember as a child.  I am excited to see even more as the season turns to summer.  Have my fingers crossed that I will find lilac in my neighborhood.

More to come.....thanks for ready my blog today.

Pineapple Still Life Painting, Best Deal, 14x18" Painting with Frame, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

Since moving (and downsizing) I'm trying to squeeze into a much small studio, with almost no storage space.


Purchase here

My solution......start a new section on my Etsy store, entitled "Best Deal".  I plan to feature a specific artwork, at a great price, and hopefully, my inventory will become more manageable.

Today, I am featuring this pineapple and mango  oil painting, in a custom frame.  The piece is framed to 19x23".  The painting shows the fruit sitting on glass, and may be purchased with or without the frame.

Marketing, in my opinion, is one of the hardest parts of being an artist.  I don't know any artists who enjoy this part of the game. I will let you know how this idea works for me.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Pear and Plum Still Life, Palette Knife Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil on canvas panel, sold

Have not done a still life, or a palette knife painting for a while, so this one was in my comfort zone.

SOLD

I naturally tend to lean towards cool colors, so I had fun working all my favorite color relationships.



This scene is a repaint, from years ago.  I couldn't find the original photograph, but I did have a photo of the first painting, so I used that as a guide.  The first painting was done with a brush, which is why I decided to mix it up a little, by using a palette knife this time around.

Hope you enjoy it!
