Art Sale | Tropical Painting | Small Oil Painting | Daily Painting | Florida Morning by Carol Schiff | 6x8 Oil

Time for my weekly painting on sale. This painting is the result of an early morning adventure.  I grabbed a cup of coffee and my camera and jumped into my car.  I arrived at the intracoastal park just in time to record the sun breaking over the horizon. I still remember the quiet and peace of that morning.  I highly recommend  everyone give it a try now and then.

Abstract Seascape, Daily Painting, Abstract Mxed Media "Sea Rhythm" 6x8" SOLD

The sea is so fascinating to me.  I love the thought of all the life under the surface of the sea....movement as the waves are pulled to the shore, tiny sea creatures burrowing into the sand..........

SOLD




Jelly fish that look like man-made objects, balloons, or aliens...........



So many interesting and exciting things going on that we are totally unaware of.  All we see is the beautiful surface of the sea.

This piece is inspired by that thought.  The paint is an example of pouring technique, along with texture and metallic elements.  Although the metallic has photographed in a warm color, it is actually silver.  Much experimenting going on in my studio these days. Feel free to pin it!

Small Landscape Painting | Marsh Painting | Small Oil Painting | Daily Painting | Southern Marsh by Carol Schiff | SOLD

I just love playing with the palette knife.

Purchase here
SOLD
I love smearing the paint around with it.  I love the textures I achieve.  I love trying new techniques with it.  I like the way I can just give my knife a swipe and it is clean, so unlike cleaning brushes :(


It is maybe a little addiction.

Most of the time, I like to incorporate the brush and the palette knife into a painting, but some days I just go all the way with the knife.

It's kind of like cleaning my kitchen counter.  I could clean off my counter for hours on end.  I have to have a wet sponge and then I could just wipe, wipe, wipe.  It's just so satisfying.....and I guess that it how I feel about using a palette knife.


The only thing I don't like is how fast my tubes of paint disappear!

Have a fabulous weekend!!

  I like the coral color and the free brushwork in my version.  I also like using a black frame to make the colors really pop.

Farm Painting | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Barn Landscape | Carolina Mountain Farm by Carol Schiff | 6x12x.75"

This is a scene I see every day when I am in Carolina.  I pass this beautiful meadow and barn on my morning walk and it never fails to impress me with it's beauty

Purchase here
135 + shipping
No matter the season, I enjoy this sight.  I guess it is just my own little piece of heaven.  I have painted the barn many times, from different angles.  I have hundreds of images of the property.

It evokes memories of the simpler days of my youth and the rural area of Northwestern Ohio where I lived.  No open meadows there, but country roads with fields of tall corn growing right up to the edge of the road.

Thank you for reading my blog today.

Tropical Landscape Art | Small Oil Painting | Daily Painting | Boat Painting | Retirement Dream by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Oil

We all have dreams....right?  Well, this is not my dream, but a client's.  It's a really nice dream, but I am already retired and no boat in sight!

Purchase here
100 + shipping
 My client dreamed about living in the tropics, on the water, a nice toy nearby and a pretty tropical garden.   If you have ever been in Florida, you will see these Poinciana trees everywhere in the central and southern portion of the state.  Of course, you have to be here at the right time of the year to see the beautiful blooms.


I hope all your dreams come true!

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Wildlife Painting | Blue Heron Art | Small Oil Painting | Daily Painting | Flight by Carol Schiff | 6x18x1.5 Oil

I was standing on the dock with my camera when this gorgeous Great Blue Heron flew towards me and landed on the railing nearby.  My lucky day!  I snapped several photos of this beautiful specimen and have painted him twice.

Purchase here

I was thrilled to get a photograph of him flying, something that usually doesn't work out for me.

I used my palette knife to obtain the texture of the water.

Purchase here

You may remember seeing this first painting a short time ago.

I don't think this bird was friendly so much......just determined.  Behind me on the dock were several fishermen and he was hoping for an effortless meal.

Florida Landscape | Small Oil Painting | Daily Painting | Palm Grove by Carol Schiff | 8x6" Oil | SOLD

I was on a photo shoot one late afternoon, walking though wetlands and knee high grasses.  I was getting a little anxious as the wildlife and creepy crawlies get more active as the sun goes down.  When I came home, I found several reference photos that I was interested in painting, which made it all worth while.

SOLD




I liked the way the early evening light was hitting these palms, turning them from gray to gold.  This is a little study for a much larger piece that I am interested in trying.  Hopefully, I can get to it soon.

Fairy Cottage, 8x10 Pen and Ink Drawing, Zentangle-Inspired Fantasy Art by Carmen Beecher


When I am making up my own little fantasy world like this it is almost as good as reading fairy tales as a child. I start with a simple drawing, then let the patterns take me where they want to go. I try to use different values to add interest and form. 


I put my drawing in a double mat, which really gives it a nice finished look. It is ready to frame now.

1575 High Winds Plein Air Alla Prima

I did this awhile ago, in April.  It was during the Souvenirs of Downtown paintout.  From life, it was starting to rain which felt pretty nice as I was getting warm.

I am just getting around to posting it, the planning board has been having meetings about this spot, its a park next to the Episcopal church by the river.  The church is talking about doing something else with it, not sure what, its pretty confusing to me.  I don't really understand politics that well.  As far as I can tell it probably won't stay the same.  Whether it will be nicer or worse I don't know.  I do like it the way it is.  I don't know if I will want to paint it again if they turn it into a tall building or baseball diamond or put fences up. 

There was some talk about a dock out into the river which would be nice. I hope the palms and banyan tree can be left alone.

The painting is 8 x10 inches oil on masonite.  It is in a plain oak frame which is optional, I will sell it without the frame too.  The shadow from the frame can be seen on the right.  $400.
