Garden Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Garden Gate by Carol Schiff, 8x8x1.5" Oil

Mr Bongart is a famous Russian artist.  One of my favorite paintings of his depicted his garden, which he painted in all seasons.  I was inspired by his work on this piece.

Wildlife Painting, Bird Painting, Daily Painting, "Great Blue Heron" by Carol Schiff, 8x6" Oil SOLD

It gets tricky trying to photograph wildlife.  This time I got lucky.  This Great Blue Heron was very calm as I walked very close to him and started clicking away.  He had his eye on the fishermen's catch and was willing to put up with me.

SOLD


  I have been working hard on color interaction and am pleased with the color on this work.

Mountain Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, "Mt Rainier" by Carol Schiff, 8x6" Oil SOLD

I wanted to do a mountain painting.....but this time it is not the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.  After a trip to Mt, Rainier in Washington state, I had to paint it!

SOLD
 Everything is bigger and more rugged in the west and Mt,. Rainier is the biggest of them all.  It looms over you in the Seattle/Tacoma area......a very massive and impressive sight.  I was surprised to see it poking through the clouds during our flight.

It's not just the mountains that are larger in the west.  I was also fascinated with the tall, tall trees.  It was a great trip and I cannot wait to visit again.


Are you ready for Thanksgiving?  I see a turkey in my future!

Small Seascape | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | The Pastel Sea by Carol Schiff | 8x10 Original SOLD

This small seascape is the result of an early morning trip to the beach.  I arrived just as the sun was breaking over the horizon.  The waves were churning as the morning light cast pastel colors on the water.

SOLD
 It never fails to amaze me that the ocean seems to have a different character each time I visit.  Violent or calm waves or no waves at all and color changes minute to minute.

This small seascape is a study of a cresting wave. Ask any surfer, it's all about the waves.  Waves appear to be all the same, but they are all unique.  I am finding that out, more and more as I paint one of my loves ......seascapes.

Farm Landscape | Daily Painting | Mountain Landscape | Valley View by Carol Schiff | 16x20x1.5" Oil

Being in the valley, our mornings in the mountains are often cool and covered with smoke (as in Smoky Mountains).  Often by mid-morning the sun burns it off.

This landscape is a nearby farm, one we pass each day.  Sometimes there are cows in the pasture or Canadian Geese in the ponds, but it ALWAYS catches my eye.

 On this day, the sun was breaking through and the fields were glowing with hay.

We have just returned to Florida after a few wonderful weeks in the mountains of North Carolina.  Fall is magical to me, especially in the mountains.

Floral Landscape | Small Oil Painting | Daily Painting | Garden Walk by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Original SOLD

I have always had visions of the perfect flower garden in my head and this small oil painting really captures it.  A white picket fence, an abundance of flowers, bee's buzzing...something like a Disney garden with no weeds allowed.


SOLD
When I saw this garden, in front of a charming cottage in North Carolina Blue Ridge Mts., it was like a dream come true.  Of course, I had to paint it.

detail

I am not blessed with a green thumb, so this was as close as I could get to my fantasy.  I hope you enjoy it!

When I first moved to Florida, I remember going to a plant nursey and the owner said to me "You are in the land of milk and honey, everything grows here."  Not true!  In the summer, it is so hot, my plants die or struggle to survive.  This year we have had so much rain, everything has rotted!  Now, Washington State, British Columbia, England....that is where beautiful flowers grow!
