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!

Tropical Fish Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Coral Reef Series, 9x12x.75" Oil

Celebrating that island feel, mon!  There may be pumpkins and falling leaves outside

purchase here
my door, but I still dream about the tropics!



I have a very difficult time photographing blue and green colors.  This painting is a perfect example.  The background is a lovely blend of aquas, blues and greens, but I lose that in the image.  Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks for viewing my art today!

Small Seascape with Sunrise Painting, Textured Palette Knife Art, 6x8" Oil Seascape

Today I am posting one of my favorite subjects, the beach!

Purchase Here
In my opinion, one of the best reasons to live in Florida, is to be able to grab a cup of coffee, and head for the beach to see the sunrise.

The beach is usually empty....maybe I will see a lone fisherman.  For the most part, only the birds are there to keep you company.  It is so serene and calming.  The perfect way to start your day.  I cannot think of a better way to spend an early morning hour.

I hope you have a wonderful day today!

Abstract Mixed Media, "All In A Row" 4x12" Original SOLD

I find myself being drawn more and more to the abstract and mixed media area of art.  In May I attended a wonderful workshop given by Carol Nelson.  She fueled my desire with her creative techniques and materials.  Since then, I have been trying to develop my own techniques.



I included some of Carol's techniques and some of my own.  I like this piece in both a horizontal format or in a vertical format.  The sides are painted and do not require framing.



It can hang on the wall or sit on a shelf.  It has just a touch of gold leaf to capture the light.
I have to admit.......I really enjoyed creating this.

Stormy Landscape Painting | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Coastal Collision II by Carol Schiff | 11x14x1.5 Oil

This stormy landscape painting is a scene I see most every afternoon in the summer, here in Florida.  The warm breezes blow across the state from the west and collide with the cool ocean breezes from the east.  Instant Storm!


purchase here
275 + shipping


I painted this in oil and using a palette knife to capture the feel of impending doom.  You know that feeling.....the black clouds suddenly roll in...the temperature drops 10 or 15 degrees in what seems like seconds and the wind kicks in.  Time to run for cover!


I painted on 11x14x1.5" canvas and painted the sides black making framing an option.

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. :)

day 19 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.
18x24cm, Oil on MDf Canvas panel
See all of the paintings so far


Over the weekend I took a couple of days out of the challenge to visit a sculpture park in Chateau la Coste vineyard, near Aix, about 2.5 hours drive away from home. The sculpture park was well worth the trip. Sculptures are placed all around the vineyard and the walk is about 2 hours long with a lot of up hill thrown in. It was very unusual and very well thought out. See here for details.

A simple landscape by Joseph Mahon

A simple composition of houses, fields and the sky. I normally do not use medium in my oil painting, other than thinning the paint in the initial stages with odourless mineral spirits (OMS), but in this case I used Neo Megilp with a palette knife to help create a bit of texture. Use the medium thinly. Oil on linen on 9 mm birch panel 6x8 ins.

Farm Landscape | Daily Painting | Mountain Landscape | Valley View by Carol Schiff | 16x20x1.5" Oil

Being in the valley, our mornings in the mountains are often cool and covered with smoke (as in Smoky Mountains).  Often by mid-morning the sun burns it off.

This landscape is a nearby farm, one we pass each day.  Sometimes there are cows in the pasture or Canadian Geese in the ponds, but it ALWAYS catches my eye.

 On this day, the sun was breaking through and the fields were glowing with hay.

We have just returned to Florida after a few wonderful weeks in the mountains of North Carolina.  Fall is magical to me, especially in the mountains.

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Paris in the Spring (Eiffel Tower) by Ann McCann 9 X 12 Oil


(c)Ann McCann, "Paris in the Spring," 9 X 12 oil on archival linen panel  


I painted this several years ago on a painting trip to France. Although the weather was cool in May, all the trees were blooming. I think the purple one is a jacaranda and the pink is a horse chestnut. What a lovely frame for the Eiffel Tower which is breathtaking itself. Great memories!

So far so good. I painted yesterday but do not have a photo of that yet.

Hopefully I will get a second wind later this afternoon.
