Painting on Sale, Mixed Media Art, Daily Painting, Lava Flow by Carol Schiff, 6x6" Poured Paint

Time for my PAINTING OF THE WEEK ON SALE.  Today, I am featuring something that is quite a stretch for me.....poured paint mixed media.  "WHAT" you say," how difficult can that be??"  The answer is....VERY!!  Trying to manipulate paint, making a pleasing design, retaining values and not having the whole thing turn into a muddy mess is, indeed, difficult!

purchase here
75. less 20. rebate

I love the color and composition in this piece. I have tried to duplicate it in other colors, but have never been successful.  The piece is high gloss with a hard resin type surface.

Now for the deal of the day.....Purchase at the link above and you will be charged $75.00 and shipping. You must write ART SALE on the order to receive the discount.  As soon as I receive your payment, I will return a credit of $20.00 to your credit card or PayPal account.

This sale is only for readers of my blog, so if you don't write ART SALE on the order, I won't know you saw it here and you won't get a rebate.  Well, probably if you write and plead that you forgot, I will believe you.

Rural Landscape Painting | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Country Road by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Original SOLD

Country Road, take me home.....

I still miss John Denver!   This rural landscape painting reminds me of his talent and the beautiful songs he left with us.

SOLD

I walk this road every morning when I am in the Smoky Mts. of Carolina.  The morning light and pastoral scenes are the perfect way to start my days there.


I painted with a palette knife, in a technique I refer to as "color weaving".  It allows for lots of texture in the work as well as very subtle changes in color. This is actually the same scene I painted in a previous post. Check out my Sept 7, 2014 post where I cropped the image and painted with a brush. A completely different composition! That's one of the things I love about art.


Thank you for reading my blog today.

Rural Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "The Way Home" by Carol Schiff, 6x6x1.5" Oil

A few weeks ago, I posted a small rural painting of the North Carolina road I walk almost daily.  Today I am posting a companion piece.

I was in awe of the beauty of the area, with trees forming a canopy over the road and sunlight streaming through.

This small painting is on 6x6x1.5" gallery wrap canvas with the sides painted, allowing it to be hung framed or unframe.

You can find the companion piece here:

Flower Painting | Small Oil Painting | Daily Painting | White Bird by Carol Schiff | 8x10x1.5" Original Oil

With this flower painting, I wanted to celebrate the beautiful, but not so well recognized, White Bird of Paradise.  If you live in the sub-tropical areas of the world, you probably see orange Bird of Paradise every day, but the white variety is not as plentiful.

purchase here
150 + shipping
 The intresting thing is that although the flowers are similar excluding color, the plant and leaves are quite different.


This variety grows on a much taller plant.  I have one over 12 feet tall.  The orange plant is lower to the ground and more bush like.

No frame necessary!

When I returned, a month later, the fields were green and the wildflowers were mowed down.  Still beautiful  but something was lost.

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

SOLD


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!

Painting on Sale | Small Seascape | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Offshore Storm by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Oil

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.
