"A Branch of Blooms" by Lynda Cookson

This is one from a few years back (sold) where the background was created using very thinned down oils poured and dripped. The flowers and vase are palette knife painted. It still makes me smile :-)

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.

Florida Wildlife Egret Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting,

One of the joys, of living in Florida, was the abundant wildlife.  It was thrilling to view these majestic birds, almost daily, from my window.

This one was painted from a photograph, as are most of my work.  He had some glorious shadows on him that I could not ignore.

This is one of those few paintings, that seemed to come easily.  It has left me eager to return to the easel, re-charged and ready to tackle my next project.  I love it when that happens!!

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.
