Floral Still Life, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil on Canvas panel

I painted this some time ago, and it immediately disappeared into the depths of my studio closet.  I sometimes accuse my husband of getting up in the middle of the night and hiding everything in my studio.

My goal on this painting (and all of my paintings) is to keep it fresh.  I think I achieved that .  I love a sweet, simple painting.

Hope you have some flowers in your life today.  They always make me happy.

California Landscape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 11x14x1.5" , "Off PCH" by Carol Schiff Studio

My good friend, and excellent photographer, Ted Fuhrer,  has done it again, supplying me with so many inspiring images to paint from.  On of the many places he has lived was the coastal region of California.

225 + shipping 
Ted, I hope you think I did justice to your work.

I am always in awe of the western coast of our country.  Living on the east coast is great, and I am so blessed to be here. We have gentle surf, warm water, island music.... But to me, the west coast is larger than life.  So rugged, so big, a constant test to exist there. The boulders are larger than houses, the mountain streams are full of rushing rapids. The pioneer spirit is still alive there.  I cannpt wait to visit again.

Small Seascape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil "Crashing Wave" by Carol Schiff Studio

In the past, I painted lots of seascapes, but in recent years, my focus has been on landscapes and flowers.  Today, I went back to my roots....kind of.

Purchase here

 I wanted to do a seascape, but something different than the past.  I found one of my images of the surf and cropped it very closely.

I tried to paint with a variety of strokes and get plenty of action into the scene.  I finished with scattering some "foam" .  I enjoyed trying to bring something new to an old subject.

Art Hits the Road!!

Something a little different today....no paintings to view.

I have been busy for several months, working on a very large commission.  I am so relieved to finally finish the project.  Here it is, all crated up and ready to go.


My husband is happy to have his garage back.




Down the driveway and into the big truck.


Who knew you could move around 200 pounds with one hand!  I need one of those pallet lifts!


I loved working on this project as it was  quite a stretch for me.  Everything is very hush,  hush and I am not allowed to tell you more at this point.

However, I can say I am planning a trip to New Orleans soon!



Thank you for viewing my blog today.

 Meet Oscar!  Well maybe that is not his real name, but I have come to think of him as an Oscar.


Some of the first paintings I sold, were pet portraits.  It has been more years than I want to admit, since I have done any.  I guess the urge is still there, because, when I see adorable pups I have to run to my easel.


If you have a special image of your "best friend", send it to me.  Maybe you will see your little charmer here too.

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Old English Sheepdog Painting, Pet Portrait, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 8x8x1.5" Oil by CarolSchiffStudio

I always loved a good shaggy dog story...so naturally I had to paint this one.

purchase here
 I found it a little difficult to get the sketching correct as this guy is all fur.  Thanks to my friend, Ted Fuhrer, for allowing me to use another of his fine photographic images.



I put a few impasto details in the face.

This image is also avaiable as a giclee print in several sizes here.

Thanks for reading my blog today.
