Sunset Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Sunset in Costa Rico" by Carol Schiff, 8x10" Oil Framed

Today I decided to do something a little different and post a sunset painting with a frame.  I love this silver custom made frame and think it looks so fabulous with this painting.

Purchase here
195 + shipping

This photo does not really do it justice, but it is as good as I could get.  I don't like selling framed paintings because of the difficulty involved in shipping them, but decided to make this an exception to the rule.

                 happy new year to you all!!!

Marsh Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "North Florida Marsh" by Carol Schiff, 9x12" Landscape, SOLD

I recently spent a few days in Fernandina Beach and stumbled across one of their beautiful marshes.  I have always admired marshes and their beautiful colors which change with the seasons.

SOLD
 I like texture in many of my paintings and I always enjoy playing with a palette knife.


I also like to push color.  Elio Camacho is a master of pushing color.....check out his work here.
I was in Fernandina Beach to attend his workshop and I hope I was able to use some of his technique in this painting.  The workshop was fascinating and I have already signed for a follow-up early next spring.

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Northwest Landscape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "The Great Northwest" by Carol Schiff, 12x16" Oil


My husband and I took our first trip to the Northwest last summer. We were stunned by the gorgeous scenery in every direction.

purchase here
325. + shipping

Obviously, we have pine trees and ocean views in Florida, but, how could they be so very different in Washington and British Columbia?  Everything seemed larger than life with trees towering into the sky and waterfalls tumbling down the sides of mountains.  It was a fabulous trip that we hope to repeat some day.

I painted this, in my studio, on linen attached to board.  As much as I like the idea of painting plein aire, it's not me.  I was taught to paint from images and still do it to this day.

Sky Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Cloud Painting, "Autumn Skies" by Carol Schiff, 8x10x1.5" Oil

In this small oil painting, the rusty foliage and peachy clouds are the perfect foil to the blue sky.  It's always a happy day when a painting goes together easily as this one did.

purchase here
I painted with a palette knife, which is almost always fun, to achieve the texture and subtle color changes I was looking for.




In these hectic days before the holidays, it's always nice to stop, take a deep breath, and enjoy the world around you.

Mountain Sunset Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Blue Ridge Sunset" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil SOLD

This mountain sunset painting is a result of our most recent trip to Smoky Mountains of North Carolina.  We were there for the beautiful leaf viewing season, and it was spectacular!  We came home to Florida on Halloween and missed the incredible 22" of snow that accumulated the next day.  I am sure that cut the leaf season short.


purchase here
SOLD
The leaves were not the only spectacular sight!  I find the mountains as fascinating as the ocean with it's constantly changing moods.


This is me, having fun!!

This month, we will be making our first winter trip to our North Carolina home....I am hoping to see that beautiful landscape covered in snow.


Here in Florida, we don't have falling leaves, or snow.  That has not stopped us from getting in the Christmas spirit.  If you have an art lover on your list, check out my Etsy shop.  I have a large selection of original paintings as well as gift certificates.

Mountain Painting | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Grandfather Mountain by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Oil

This mountain painting is a view of Grandfather Mountain near Boone NC.  It was a cold and windy day when I ventured out, but it was worth the effort.

Purchase here
99 + shipping
 The view was gorgeous!  Mountains and oceans hold the same fascination for me...they are both ever changing in color and mood and filled with energy and movement.




I have just returned from an Elio Camacho workshop and this piece is a sample of me trying to paint like him!  My goal is better color relationships.....he is a master in that area.


Just a reminder.....today and tomorrow, my paint group, Pieces of Eight, is having our annual Christmas sale at Ralph's Art Supply in Eau Gallie Arts District.  Check out the details here.
