It is always interesting and educational to review the painting journey that you have been on.  I like to line up older paintings, chronologically, which helps me to see the improvements I have made and the ones I would like to make in the future.  Always an interesting exercise.

Have a painterly day and thanks for visiting!

"My Iris" by Karla Nolan, palette knife oil painting

Okay, I'm jumping the gun on spring, I admit it.  In fact, it is snowing again as I type, heading into April.  The green foliage has emerged from the ground but the iris buds are not ready to peek out yet.  I'm more than ready to see this iris plant once more.  Enough with the snow!

Cloud Painting, Sky Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, A Touch of Blue by Carol Schiff, 6x8 Original art

I love to paint the sky, but this is my first daily painting of ONLY sky.

 It was really quite fun as I concentrate more on values than getting really accurate shape.  I like the texture  and will definitely do this little exercise again.

It's nice to have a model that is always available and changes each time you paint it.

What are your favorite things to paint?  I started off with simple still life, went through a flower stage and now find I am doing more landscape than anything else.  My goals this year are many.  I want to paint more larger pieces, more figurative pieces and to add quality giclee' prints to my website.

I hope I can stay on track.  Do you have a plan for where you want to be 12 months from now? I would love to hear about it.

Keep painting and thank you for viewing my blog today.

"Flowers from a Private View" by Lynda Cookson

This painting recently SOLD. She's featuring here as her Swan Song from my Collection. Inspired by a huge arrangement sent to me by dear friends who could not make it to a solo exhibition of my paintings in Ireland. I kept her as mine for a long time until, like a crystal, she needed to find her new home. I'll miss her.

On the Snow Trail by Ann McCann 20 X 20 Oil

(c)Ann McCann 2016

It occasionally snows in Dallas. Even with a big snowfall, it soon melts. However, it is beautiful while it lasts. I love the deep blues and purples in this scene, contrasting with the bright whites and blues of the snow. This is a path that I would follow into the woods. How about you?

Marsh Landscape Painting | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Marsh in Spring by Carol Schiff 6x18 Oil , SOLD


I love viewing a marsh as the colors change with each season.  In the fall and winter, they are full of mauve and lavender color and in the spring they burst into glorious greens.

Thank you for viewing my daily painting today.

"Familiar Forces (Cill Rialaig)" by Lynda Cookson

I have spent three residencies at Cill Rialaig, a restored famine village in Co Kerry, Ireland, during the last few years. The village teeters on the edge of a cliff overlooking Ballinskelligs Bay. My residencies all took place during January ... a very wild, windy, rainy, sometimes snowy, and of course cold, time of year.

For those of you who can feel or appreciate the spirit world, with a children's graveyard less than a kilometre from the stone-house famine village, and with the weather so wild, you can imagine how I felt those presences!

I produced a collection of acrylic paintings in that time, all very loosely painted, with flicks of the paint brush ... and most of them came out very representative of past lives indeed. This is one of them.

Small Abstract Painting, Daily Painting, Original Oil Abstract ,by Carol Schiff, 8x8x1.5"

It has been some time since I posted an abstract......this week I was in the mood to do some non-representative work.

Purchase here
130 + shipping

I enjoy abstract, at times, as it gives me the opportunity to concentrate on composition and color relationships.  No drawing distractions!

I started this piece by creating lots of texture on the canvas, followed by a coat of acrylic cad. red.  Then the fun began as I brought out my oils and just pushed paint around until I was happy with the results.  It was that same feeling I used to get when I would stomp around in rain puddles as a kid.

I know I will soon go back to representative work, but today, I am happy with this,

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Morning Dogwood by Chrys Wilson

On this Easter weekend, I thought I would share an Award Winning piece that is a combination of palette knife and brush.  This was painted in four layers with the palette knife being the final layer.  There is an illusion of morning mist in the background with a few trees peeking through.  It has a calmness about it that is just beautiful.  I hope you enjoy.
