Expressionist Abstract Seascape, Sunset Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Free Shipping in USA

For me, the best time to visit the beach is sunrise or sunset.  It is such a spiritual experience.

Purchase Here

In the morning, I am usually alone.  Just me, my camera, the birds, and possible a lone fisherman, trying his luck.

detail
At sunset, you may not be alone, but in a group of spectators, standing in awe, as the sun sinks into the sea.

Both experiences will enrich your day.

Mountain Landscape Painting, Misty Mountain Morning, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x12" Oil Landscape

Mornings in Carolina are so special.

purchase here

One of my favorite ways to start the day, is sipping my coffee on the deck, while the morning mist burns off.  It is so peaceful....as if I am alone in the world.  Sounds are muted and I feel protected.

 The Cherokee named it Nantahala, which means "land of the mid day sun".

Enjoy your day!

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.

Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, VanGogh landscape, "Tribute to Vincent" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil

Each week our art group appoints one member as leader.  The leader, decides what type of project we will work on that day.  A few weeks ago, Faye was our leader, and as her project, she brought it images of VanGogh and Monet paintings for us to re-create.

 I chose his very famous "Wheatfield with Cypresses" . Actually, I chose one of three similar paintings that carry that name.

 I have always wanted to give his famous and distinctive swirling brushwork a try.  It was an interesting experiment, one that I will probably do again.


Years ago, I spent some time studying the masters  and duplicating some of their works.  I found it to be very informative.  Here is one of my attempts at Degas' work, "Woman Bathing"

Seascape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Beach Memories" , 11x14" Oil, SOLD

I created this small seascape from my memories of the beautiful beaches that surround us here in the state of Florida.


SOLD
I painted with a brush and pallet knife to show texture in the waves rushing to shore and the sea oats rising above the protective dunes.


The more I travel, the more I am in awe of our beautiful world, including the beauty of my home state.  It is so easy to forget the beauty that surrounds you.  Take a moment today to find your beauty.

Small Landscape Painting, Palette Knife Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil

Did you ever have that feeling, that you just want to get away?  Away from the hustle and bustle of life, the job, the town, .......just everything?

This little painting, is my idea of that perfect get away.  It's on a quiet mountain road, snuggled up under the trees, but not so far from civilization that I would not want to be there alone.  In other words.....PERFECT!


Oh, to waken to birds chirping, and leaves falling softly to the ground.



I have not added this piece to my Etsy site yet, so feel free to contact me here, if you are interested in purchasing.

Have a wonderful day!

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.

This is for a 12x16x1.5" canvas giclee print of my original painting.  It will come to you wired and ready to hang.  The print extends around the sides of the canvas, no frame is required.

Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Small Seascape, "Celebrating Blue" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil SOLD

I worked this small seascape with a knife, trying to mimic the action of the waves with my strokes.

SOLD
I usually work from images on my computer, but this time the image was in my head.  I tried to fill the canvas with shades of blues and greens, and also to suggest a little of the beach.


MY PRINTS
I feel I captured the spirit of the waves rushing to shore, and I must say, it was a most enjoyable experience.  I plan to try this technique again.

Cat Painting, Animal Portrait, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x6 Original Oil

I always enjoy painting animals, so it is no surprise, that when I hosted a photo contest, on my  facebook page, I chose a kitten, as the winner.

Purchase here



I could not resist painting this adorable kitten.  Below is the original image, sent in from Sandy, in Florida.


I asked readers, to inspire me, by sending in their favorite images.  The winner received a giclee print of the finished painting.

I had so much fun, that I am thinking of holding this contest monthly.  Check out my facebook page,
Carol Schiff Studio, and join in the fun.

"Chilly Spring Walk" by Lynda Cookson

It's just the right time of year for a "Chilly Spring Walk" in your local nature trail (if you're in the northern hemisphere like we are!). The days are really beautiful with ever-changing days of April showers, sunshine and nippy breezes, and light white clouds in the blue sky. All the little flowers are heralding the onset of Spring and I am having loads of fun picking little wild posies to dot around the house. Lawn Daisies are my favourites and I love how they pop up within hours of the lawn being mown.

My "Chilly Spring Walk" painting, oil on paper, is available as the ORIGINAL HERE

and

the image for prints and giclees is available as an INSTANT DOWNLOAD HERE

Yesterday's News, Coastal Landscape, Florida Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting

Purchase Here

The waterways of Florida are littered with abandoned boats, that have been destroyed by the hurricanes of the last few years. Unscrupulous owners, remove the boat registrations, walk away with their insurance money, and leave it to the counties to remove the damaged boats. In most cases, the counties do not have funds, so the boats sit in the waters.
