Seascape Painting, Palette Knife Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Textured Seascape

I wanted to do a seascape, or actually a beach painting, somewhere between an abstract and impressionism.

SOLD

I wanted to record just my memories and impressions of trips to the beach.  I painted with a knife and tried to work quickly.

I tried not to think too much about the colors I was using or where I was putting them, but tried to keep it really instinctive.





I wanted plenty of texture in this piece.



It was a fun exercise!

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Wildlife Print, Otter Print, Otter Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

Otters are one of those cute little animals that we all love to feel have human characteristics.  The way they float on their backs, using their bellies for  a table.  I once read they link paws when they sleep, so they will not float away from each other.

 It will come to you ready to hang.  The print extends around the sides of the canvas, no frame is required.

Small Flower Painting, Coneflower Painting, Echinacea Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

One of my favorite flowers to paint, are coneflowers (echinacea).  I think they have so much personality.

Purchase here

This time, I used a palette knife, to add interest and dimension.



I always try to keep a black frame around, as I think they really help the painting to pop!

Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Small Flower Painting, "Country Style" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil on Panel

When I am in Florida, I go to the store, purchase flowers, bring them home and try to arrange them perfectly in a beautiful vase.

purchase here
110 plus shipping
When I am in North Carolina, I go to the garden, or just pick some wildflowers, plop them in a small milk bottle or jelly jar.......that's what I call "Country Style".


I tried to keep that laid back feel in the painting too, using both a brush and a palette knife.



Then, I brought it back to Florida, to remind me to relax and chill now and then.

Thanks for reading my blog today.  I hope you get to "chill" a little too.

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

I posted this last autumn. How did autumn get here so fast?  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.

Life gets busy and sometimes I don't visit the beach for months at a time.  When I finally get there, it is like visiting an old friend.  I always vow to get back more often.

Pelican Painting, Wildlife Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 9x12" Original Art, SOLD

We spent a lovely afternoon at Pt Canaveral recently.  Of course, we were surrounded by birds.

I was inspired by this pelican, hunkered down on a piling.

SOLD
I realized that many of the paintings, that give me the most joy, are birds.  I am committed to painting more of them.

The biggest block is getting good photos to work from.

I want to share some of my other photos from this trip to Pt. Canaveral.





As you can see, it was a wonderful day.  Grandson came along, making it even more special!

Abstract Sea Painting, Palette Knife Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 8x16x.75" Oil, SOLD

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

SOLD
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.

California Landscape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 11x14x1.5" , "Off PCH" by Carol Schiff Studio

My good friend, and excellent photographer, Ted Fuhrer,  has done it again, supplying me with so many inspiring images to paint from.  On of the many places he has lived was the coastal region of California.



Purchase here
225 + shipping 
Ted, I hope you think I did justice to your work.

I am always in awe of the western coast of our country.  Living on the east coast is great, and I am so blessed to be here. We have gentle surf, warm water, island music.... But to me, the west coast is larger than life.  So rugged, so big, a constant test to exist there. The boulders are larger than houses, the mountain streams are full of rushing rapids. The pioneer spirit is still alive there.  I cannpt wait to visit again.

Small Seascape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil "Crashing Wave" by Carol Schiff Studio SOLD

In the past, I painted lots of seascapes, but in recent years, my focus has been on landscapes and flowers.  Today, I went back to my roots....kind of.


 I wanted to do a seascape, but something different than the past.  I found one of my images of the surf and cropped it very closely.

I tried to paint with a variety of strokes and get plenty of action into the scene.  I finished with scattering some "foam" .  I enjoyed trying to bring something new to an old subject.


Thank you for reading my blog today!

Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Wildlife Painting, Bird Art, 6x8" Robin in Oil, SOLD

When I was a kid growing up in northern Ohio, I always anxiously awaited the return of robins, knowing winter was gone when they came.  I wondered where they spent the winters....now I know....North Carolina!

SOLD
   Well, anyway, that is where this bird spent the winter and where my photographer friend, Ted Fuhrer snapped an image of him.  Thanks for allowing me to use it, Ted.



I really like this in a chunky black frame!

Thanks for reading my blog today.  I hope you see a robin in your tree.

Abstract Painting, Small Abstract, Alcohol Inks, Experimenting



I am finally writing a post in my new home!  It has been a long and stressful journey, from Melbourne, FL to Asheville NC.  I know I am home, because I am finally painting, posting and doing all those art related activities that were a part of my life for 25 years.  Welcome home!

This is an experiment with alcohol inks.  I purchased the inks, as a change from my oils, but my move has gotten in the way of experimenting with them.  I did find this little sample to be interesting and have lots of ideas on ways to use them in the future.  Have you tried them?  I am open to suggestions and techniques.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
