Hula Painting | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Direct from Hawaii by Carol Schiff | 8x10 Figurative art, SOLD

This hula painting is probably as close as I will get to Hawaii.......but that is okay.  I can hear the music and the palms rustling in the breeze.

I wonder if they can sit in those grass skirts.  It seems they would be VERY uncomfortable!

Daily Painting, Small Flower Painting, Small Oil Painting, " Picket Fence" by Carol Schiff, 6x12x.75" Oil

Every once in a while I find a small piece of "the way things used to be"........you know what I mean?  In the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, we often pass a charming white house, surrounded by a white picket fence.  It is obviously the house of a gardner.  When I saw it this summer, with a beautiful display of flowers bordering the fence, I asked my husband to stop so that I could hop out of the car and take a photo.

  Somebody remind me not to paint  with such dark backgrounds!  Although, I love the way the painting shows in life, it is impossible to photograph it without glare.

Regardless, I was happy with the painting and thrilled to find this beautiful setting and reminder of the slower, more peaceful life in small town America that I remember from my youth.

Seascape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Beach Memories" , 11x14" 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.

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.

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

 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.

Small Seascape | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Morning Light by Carol Schiff | 8x10 Original Oil | SOLD

I have been spending so much time in the Blue Ridge Mountains, my trips to the beaches have suffered.  Time to roll out of bed before the sun, grapb a cup of coffee and go for a short drive to the sea.

SOLD
Just as I arrive, the sun starts it's slow climb above the horizon.  I have forgotten how peaceful and beautiful it is on the beach at this time of day.  Way down the beach, I can see a fisherman, but other than him we are alone with the birds who are looking for breakfast.

It is so enjoyable here, cool, serene.....I feel refreshed and ready to start my day.

Do you have a happy place too?

This painting was commissioned by a client who saw a similar work on my Etsy site.  The piece she wanted was already sold.  I was happy to do a similar painting in the size she desired.
