Small Seascape, daily painting, small oil painting, Florida painting SOLD

If you're having a grey rainy day today, this small seascape painting might help you get through the day.

Purchase here

It's a small  view of the ocean from east central Florida.  I love the repetitive action of the waves and could watch them roll into the beach for hours at a time.

It works well, just sitting on a shelf with a seashell or another reminder of your last trip to the tropics.

The scene extends around the sides of the canvas, so no framing is required.

I took a trip to Jetty Park at Pt. Canaveral the other day.

  That's where all the cruise ships dock and head out to the islands.  The weather was perfect, mid 70's, and I came home feeling like I had been on a little mini vacation.  Maybe this small seascape painting will help you to feel that way too.

Daily Painting, Winter Scene, "Snow Palace" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil SOLD

This daily painting is about winter.  It has been a tough winter so far.  Here in Florida, we have had beautiful weather the last few months, but the hardships of winter up north were made apparent to me when a friend sent a photo of their home.

 I remember scenes like this from my childhood, but with the milder weather we have had the last 30-40 years, I somehow thought those days were gone.

I hope all who live in these climates are able to stay cozy and warm through these cold winter nights.

Thank you for viewing my daily paintings and please pin it.

Pear Still Life Painting, Daily Painting, "Pink Pear" by Carol Schiff, 5x7" Oil

I painted this pear still life a few years ago and recently found it my studio.  It was a fun piece to do.  I wanted to experiment with color and bold negative shape.

Purchase here

I placed the pear on a window sill with strong sunlight pouring in behind it.  Then the fun started.  I took a photo, uploaded it and started playing with color and contrast on the screen.  A great exercise, give it a try some time

FUN FACT:  35% of people are born without wisdom teeth.

Have a great day....paint a pear still life!

Small Floral, Daily Painting, "Pink Power" by Carol Schiff 5x7" Oil SOLD

This is a small floral is a commissioned piece that went to Australia.  It's always fun to think about my art hanging on walls around the world.  You just gotta love the internet!

My customer had seen a larger painting of mine that was very similar to this one.  She contacted me and asked me to paint this hibiscus for her in a small size.  I was happy to help her out.

FUN FACTS.  Did you know.......Zebras coats are just black...their undercoats have white stripes!  Strange but, true.

It's in the thirties as I write this.(I actually wrote this on 1/07/14)  I know, I know, you are at 50 below, but this is FLORIDA!  Fortunately for us, we only have one day of weather in the 50's and tomorrow they are forecasting 70's with 80's by the end of the week.  No wonder, Florida is now the third largest state in population!

I hope you enjoyed this small floral.  Thank you for viewing my blog today and I would love if you pinned it .

Pelican Painting, Daily Painting, "Over the Waves" by Carol Schiff, 8x8" Oil SOLD

If you live on the coast, you are sure to see these guys every day and if you are an artist on the coast, you are expected to paint them.  I don't mind as they are such fun to watch.  They love skim over the waves, looking for breakfast, and then dive bomb and do a most clumsy looking entrance into the water.

Wildlife Painting, Duck Painting, "Mr Mallard" by Carol Schiff, 6x8' oil SOLD

We spend a lot of time in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, and usually the streams and rivers are full of ducks and Canadian geese. I found this Mallard in the beautiful park at Cherokee, NC.

If you are an artist, buying many frames, you may like this tip.  Ask your favorite framer to make you standard size frames from his "end pieces" of moldings.  Often these are thrown away and my framer is happy to have a chance to use them.  As a result, he sells them very inexpensively, attracting more business from artists.  A win, win situation.

Don't forget to use coupon code NEWYEAR25 to get an additional 25% off the paintings listed in my MAKE ME AN OFFER section of my Etsy site.  You will find a great selection of well priced paintings.
