Have you ever walked through clouds?  On this day, I could actually see them drifting past my feet.  They are very wet!

We were on one of the higher peaks of the Smokies.  My youngest grandson was delighted!

I tried to capture the feel of the rugged pines that grow at an altitude of 7,000+ feet, with my palette knife.  It allowed a textured feel the reminds me of the prickly and gnarled pines.

I painted on a gallery wrap canvas to allow hanging with or without a frame.

Thanks for viewing today!

Small Oil Painting | Daily Painting | Small Oil Landscape | Into the Woods by Carol Schiff | 6x6x1.5" Oi

In this small oil painting, I tried to capture that brief moment in time when the sun drops behind the horizon and backlights a grouping of trees.

Purchase here

 I wanted to leave this with a slight whimsical feeling.  It is on 6x6x1.5" gallery wrap canvas with the sides painted black, allowing it to be hung with or without a frame.  Don't you just love gallery wrap?

I also wanted to show you this neat image a client sent me.  She purchased one of my prints on wood panel and liked it so much, she ultimately ordered another, larger, print of the same scene.  She sent me an image of it hanging in her room.  Thank you Kim... I have headboard envy!!

This rural landscape painting is special to me.  I was inspired to do this small oil painting during my recent trip to North Carolina.

Purchase here

 As I took my morning walks, I marveled at the beauty of the area.  Even the road I walked seemed special surrounded in green and little wildflowers.  The trees surrounding the road formed a canopy with strong light shining through.  I couldn't wait to paint the scene!

It is painted on 6x6x1.5"  gallery wrap canvases with the sides painted black.  No framing costs necessary!

I had such fun painting this small landscape painting....can you tell?  I have a companion piece too!  You can see it here:

Sea Gull Painting | Small Oil Painting | Daily Painting | The Freedom to be Yourself by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Oil | SOLD

I happened to find this old post of a seal gull paintng from May, 2011.  I have always liked this painting.....and I enjoyed reading the post again.  I thought you might like it too.  Try as I might, I cannot get the fun comments from the original post to transfer, but it was a neck and neck between the two titles.

You have the freedom to be yourself,
your true self,
here and now -
and nothing can stand in your way!

Jonathan Livingston Seagull
from a very popular book of the 70's


My second choice for a title is "He said, she said".  Also during the 70's one of the top women's magazines of the day, I think it was McCall's or maybe Redbook, had a monthly article called "Can this marriage be saved?"
They would write the wife's story under "she said" and the husband's version under "he said" and then a counselor of some kind would write an analysis of what was wrong in the marriage and what the couple needed to do to improve the situation.  So, when I looked at this painting, to me it looks like "he" is saying and maybe "she" is not buying it.

Which title do you like the best?  Hmmmmm, I think I just told you how old I am!

Today's painting on sale brings back some not so pleasant memories.

My husband and I were walking the beach on afternoon, when suddenly the sky was filled with black clouds.  The beach is not the place to be when a storm comes in so we quickly returned to our car.......but not before I took a quick photo.  There was just a streak of light on the horizon as the black clouds closed in.
