Cowgirl Portrait, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Redheaded Cowgirl", 6x8" Oil


purchase here
95.00 + shipping
I few years ago, I went to a real cattle drive in Florida. Cattle were herded across the state and cowboys and cowgirls spent a week on horseback and in covered wagons.   They ate from the chuck wagon and slept outside on the ground.   I found this cowgirl resting next to a campfire on the last day of the drive.

I painted this several years ago, but for one reason or another, have never posted it before.

If you have never painted a redhead, I highly recommend it.  Such fun!

This piece is part of my "Women in Hats" series.

Thanks for viewing my blog today!

BOUGAINVILLEA AND UMBRELLA, 6X8 SOLD

While driving to the post office, I passed this charming garden spot.  The blooming bougainvillea and garden umbrella in contrasting color, caught my eye.

A few weeks ago, the talented Diana Marshall, from Dublin, Ireland, had a painting give-away.  She offered to do a portrait of choice for the winner, who happened to be ME!

Today I received this great painting of my grandson showing off his prize fish!  Thank you Diana, this will go directly to my grandson Kevin.

Be sure to check out Diana's blog.  Her paintings are great and her  animal portraits are fantastic, especially the cats.

Daily Painting, Oil, Animal, Sheep, 8x10

My friend, Donna Vines, took a trip to Northern England earlier this year.  She was kind enough to share her photos with me.  I have painted several of them and I could not resist this small lamb walking the moor.


Purchase here
170
I painted with palette knife and brush and tried to get lots of texture in it.  I liked the rugged  feel.  I have never been on the moors, but I think they would feel rugged and cold and windy.



I painted a ram a few months ago, which I like to think is this lamb's daddy.  You can view it here

Have a wonderful week!

This rural landscape painting is special to me.  I was inspired to do this small oil painting during my recent trip to North Carolina.

Purchase here
99.95 + shipping


 As I took my morning walks, I marveled at the beauty of the area.  Even the road I walked seemed special surrounded in green and little wildflowers.  The trees surrounding the road formed a canopy with strong light shining through.  I couldn't wait to paint the scene!

It is painted on 6x6x1.5"  gallery wrap canvases with the sides painted black.  No framing costs necessary!

I had such fun painting this small landscape painting....can you tell?  I have a companion piece too!  You can see it here:

Wildlife Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, "Gray Squirrel" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil SOLD

Have you ever tried to photograph wildlife?  I have, and consider it an exercise in frustration.  Many blurred images later, my friend and photographer, Ted Fuhrer, offered me the use of his images.  Thanks so much, Ted.

SOLD
This little guy looks very inquisitive and ready to bolt at the least movement.

  I enjoyed experimenting with painting his fur and directing the viewer's eye.  The animal is much the same color as the background in this scene.

 I put it in one of my black frames.  They seem to work perfectly for just about any painting.

Happy day to you!
