Abstract Landscape | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Seeing Better Days by Carol Schiff | 6x8 Oil

This abstract landscape of an isolated structure in blazing sunlight is a memory of the days I lived in Louisiana and Texas.  Often we would find these abandoned structures awaiting a new life.

purchase here
115 + shipping
 But it could also be from the countryside of Arizona or even North Dakota, where the weather is very rugged.  Can you tell I moved a lot in my life?  Yes, I spent years and years following my Air Force husband from location to location.  We are so happy to have spread our roots in Florida and North Carolina.




I have to be in the mood to paint with a palette knife, but when I am.....it is really fun (and in my case messy).  Most of my favorite artwork (by me) has a least, some areas of knife work.  I really love the texture which I feel brings a whole new dimension to the piece.

Thanks so much for viewing my abstract landscape today.  I hope you will pin it!

Daily Painting | Portrait of Child | Small Oil Painting | Nate by Carol Schiff | 9x12 Original | NFS

It's been a long time since I have attempted a portrait.  When I first started painting, I thought I wanted to pursue that talent, but I soon realized how much more precise a portrait artist must be.  I knew I did not want to do that every day, however, I like to give it a try now and then.

NFS
When a new child entered our extended family, I promised the proud parents a portrait .  That was two years ago!   Today, I am humbled before those of you who practice this talent.


Thank you for viewing my art today.

Small Seascape | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | The Pastel Sea by Carol Schiff | 8x10 Original

This small seascape is the result of an early morning trip to the beach.  I arrived just as the sun was breaking over the horizon.  The waves were churning as the morning light cast pastel colors on the water.

Purchase here
150 + shipping
 It never fails to amaze me that the ocean seems to have a different character each time I visit.  Violent or calm waves or no waves at all and color changes minute to minute.

daily painter, price $95., surf painting,

This small seascape is a study of a cresting wave. Ask any surfer, it's all about the waves.  Waves appear to be all the same, but they are all unique.  I am finding that out, more and more as I paint one of my loves ......seascapes.

Daily Painting, Beach Scene, "Reel Her In" 8x10" Palette Knife Painting

This is the second time I have painted this scene.  The first time, several years ago, was a small 5x7.  I wanted to paint it larger, but couldn't find the image on my computer.  When I finally found it...I didn't have the size canvas I wanted to use (14x18) so, because I was frustrated I did it on the 8x10.



Purchase here
145 + shipping


I suppose this means I will repeat the process again at some unknown point in the future.




This time I painted with a palette knife and brush.  I like the texture that can be achieved with the knife.  I also have added some great "ocean" colors to my palette.



Who knows....maybe the next time I paint this scene, it will be an abstract!


This is the first painting.  Do you have a  preference?

Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Flower Painting, Floral Still Life "Hydrangea and Goldenrod" 8x6" SOLD

Another of my "chunky" floral still life.  The idea on these is to keep detail to a minimum with color, brushstrokes and shape catching you eye.

SOLD


I quickly sketched in very basic shapes, not being fussy but trying to capture enough of the flower shape to be recognizable.  I massed in dark under colors and then worked a little with local color.  Of course, I  pumped it up.




I worked with big strokes and lots of paint.

Thank you for viewing my art today.

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

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.


Purchase here
99.95 + shipping
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.

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.

abstract expressionist painting, contemporary art, daily painting, small abstract art, small oil painting,

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. :)





Help me out....Pin It!
