Small Seascape | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Atlantic Rush by Carol Schiff | 8x10" Oil SOLD

I created this small seascape from my memories of the beautiful beaches that surround us here in the state of Florida.


SOLD
I painted with a brush and pallet knife to show texture in the waves rushing to shore and the sea oats rising above the protective dunes.


The more I travel, the more I am in awe of our beautiful world, including the beauty of my home state.  It is so easy to forget the beauty that surrounds you.  Take a moment today to find your beauty.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Small Landscape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Entering Light" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil

I enjoyed the small landscape painting, of my morning walk, that I posted a few weeks ago.  I decided to do another similar piece.  I hope you like it.


Purchase here
99 + shipping
 I enjoy the solitude of getting my morning exercise on this road, with nothing to keep me company except the birds and wildflowers and the beautiful canopy of trees.  When I return home from my walk, I feel ready to attack the day ahead.






Thank you for reading my blog today.

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.

Landscape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Deep Creek" by Carol Schiff 8x10 Original

Are you up for another landscape painting?  I seem to be stuck in that genre these days.  I did a little traveling this summer and have so many beautiful landscape images lined up to paint.

This one is from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, on the North Carolina side....Bryson City entrance.  If you have ever been there, you will recognize this immediately.

Purchase here
150 + shipping

 Normally, this scene has a steady flow of kids and adults floating slowly down the river in tubes.  Yes, it is Deep Creek!  A beautiful area with lots of folks having picnics on the banks of the creek.

You can watch the tubers and small children playing in the water, or watch the fly fishermen trying for a trout.  If you on the energetic side, you can go for a mountain hike or maybe just a leisurely stroll to beautiful Thomas Falls.  The perfect no stress day.

Figurative Art | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Boy Fishing Painting | Taking a Break by Carol Schiff | 8x10x.75" Original

In this daily painting, I was at the end of Cocoa Beach pier on a hot August day.  This small boy had put his rod and reel aside and was staring intently into the water.  Had he found some fish?  a surfer?  Maybe he was contemplating how cool and refreshing the water would feel.

Purchase here
150 + shipping
 Whatever he was thinking, I hope he remembers this day forever.  When he could just do what boys do.....a modern day Huck Finn.  He reminds me of my son at that age.



This boy is all grown up now.....and so is my son, who has a son of his own that likes to dream of fishing on a hot summer day.


I am overstocked on these daily paintings, so I have them on sale on my Etsy site this week.  I am offering a $15.00 rebate on any 5x7 or 6x8 full price painting sold.  Just write ETSY SALE on your order and I will credit your PayPal or Credit Card account.
