These pinks, blues, purples and greens are really my favorite colors.  I think they give a very soothing feeling to this small floral still life.

Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Seascape Painting | California Sun by Carol Schiff |m 5x7" Oil

SOLD
Shelley Smart documents the day to day activities at the beach on her great blog "A Year at the Beach".  She is a fantastic artist and photographer and was nice enough to share some of her photography with me.  So, I painted this little seascape from her reference.


How could I turn down a scene like this!   I still didn't have it out of my blood, so I decided to try a little acrylic abstract based on the same reference.

SOLD
Shelley, thank you...I hope you approve.

Florida Coastal Landscape, Seascape Painting "View From The Cottage by The Sea" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Sunset...the time of day when the ultimate calm sets in and the only way to describe it is utter peacefulness. People marvel at the quickly changing glorious colors, along with the speed of descent. Immediately comes the tremendous applause as the sun slips away. This was my view from the "Cottage By The Sea". Would you like to live here?

Small Abstract Painting, Church Painting "The Safe Place" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil

I have been dabbling with abstracts for some time, and now have started to add some structures to the mix.
Purchase here
125 + shipping
 I am always attracted to old churches, and this one is rather special.  It is a local landmark in our town.  I worked right next door for twenty plus years, so I saw it every day.  Now, it also serves as a cold weather shelter for the homeless.





I tried to focus on color interaction as well as texture and abstraction.  I am happy with the results.

Still Life Bottle Painting, "Fluer de Lis" by Carol Schiff, 6x18x1.5" Oil

I like to collect bottles, so, it is a natural for me to do a still life bottle painting.  I like the fluer de lis on the bottle as well as the bold gold color.


purchase here
199 + shipping

 Painting this bottle was a challenge for me, but photographing the results was even more frustrating.  Try as I might, I could not get the correct background color to show.  The image above is much too blue while the one below seems more accurate.


Thank you for viewing my still life bottle painting today and please feel free to pin it if you so desire.

Abstract Landscape | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Seeing Better Days by Carol Schiff | 6x8 Oil

This abstract landscape of an isolated structure in blazing sunlight is a memory of the days I lived in Louisiana and Texas.  Often we would find these abandoned structures awaiting a new life.

purchase here
115 + shipping
 But it could also be from the countryside of Arizona or even North Dakota, where the weather is very rugged.  Can you tell I moved a lot in my life?  Yes, I spent years and years following my Air Force husband from location to location.  We are so happy to have spread our roots in Florida and North Carolina.




I have to be in the mood to paint with a palette knife, but when I am.....it is really fun (and in my case messy).  Most of my favorite artwork (by me) has a least, some areas of knife work.  I really love the texture which I feel brings a whole new dimension to the piece.

Thanks so much for viewing my abstract landscape today.  I hope you will pin it!

Original Florida Coastal Landscape Painting "Serenity on Sanibel" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin


This is an oil painting. Approaching the Sanibel Lighthouse from this direction on the pathway, I relished in the colorful, late afternoon skies. What a glorious site and an interesting vantage point of the lighthouse with the dappled sunlight peeking through the trees and onto the shell path.

Florida Landscape Paintng | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Dance of the Wavesby Carol Schiff | 6x8" Palette Knife Painting | SOLD

SOLD


I don't really understand what it is about water that makes our blood pressure drop, why it is so appealing  to most everyone.


During the hot, steamy summer months, I often wonder why we live in Florida, but this time of the year, there is no doubt.



Paint me a picture of the landscape.
Dance me the dance of the waves. 
Sing me of the legends of the river.
Tell me the story of the sky.

The Cut by Sally Shisler




 The Cut, 10x20" Oil on linen 201445
Available - Contact me for pricing.
scshisler@gmail.com

Been working on larger things, experimenting with my knives and loving every minute of it! I can't wait til my next workshop in a few weeks. My students are in for some real fun! BTW - there are only 2 spots left. Class is limited to 8. If you're interested, contact me asap.
OK, so... drama queen lately. I am entranced by working out of darkness; dramatic theater type lighting as opposed to the sunny light of outdoors. So many things happened in this painting. Starting with being another painting that got scraped (even after almost dry - can do this with thick paint). Brush toned with mix of prussian blue and raw umber. Built the dark jewel like colors from there. LOVE alizarin crimson; prussian blue; magenta; sap green; and lamp black. Just started using black (only lamp so far); much to the chagrin of my students. Mixing the three primaries is good fundamental practice; but when lamp black helps you achieve richer darks with lots of depth - USE IT!

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 to 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.
