Cat Painting, Animal Portrait, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x6 Original Oil

I always enjoy painting animals, so it is no surprise, that when I hosted a photo contest, on my  facebook page, I chose a kitten, as the winner.

Purchase here



I could not resist painting this adorable kitten.  Below is the original image, sent in from Sandy, in Florida.


I asked readers, to inspire me, by sending in their favorite images.  The winner received a giclee print of the finished painting.

I had so much fun, that I am thinking of holding this contest monthly.  Check out my facebook page,
Carol Schiff Studio, and join in the fun.

Farm Landscape Painting, Farmhouse Decor, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Landscape Painting, 11x14"

I have painted by neighbor's farm, in the Smoky Mountains, many times.

Purchase Here

It is such a scenic view.   I cannot pull my eyes away from it, whenever I pass.  I always think of a chirpy little bird, whenever I see the barn  "face".

 This time, there was an added surprise.  This lovely black bull, standing in the field.  I pulled out my trusty camera and was able to get a decent shot.

That was several years ago!  I looked at the image many times over the years, but only tried to paint it recently. The time must be right!

Thanks for viewing my art today.

Small Landscape Painting, Blue Ridge Mountains, Wildflower Painting, Daily Painter, Small Oil Painting

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!

Dog Painting, Pet Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 8x10" Oil on Canvas



My neighbor Ellen, commissioned me to do paintings of her two fur babies.


I was happy when she loved this painting.  She felt I captured his spirit well.

In some ways, it is more difficult to paint a pet, because the owner is so hyper aware of every little aspect of their beloved animal.  This little guy had hair that stood up straight on top of his head, and super long eyelashes.  The owner looked for that in the portrait, as well as all the color variations of the animal.  She pronounced it a good likeness.....whew!
