Small Seascape Painting | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Green Sea by Carol Schiff | 11x14 Original

This small seascape painting was worked with a palette knife and is full of texture.  Just as the sea has many faces, my art does too.  Some days I want to do a detailed piece and somedays I want to sling paint.  Today...I wanted to sling paint.

Florida Coastal Landscape,Seascape Painting,Beach House "House on The Bay" Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Growing up in a small coastal state with a large family was always an adventure. We would take family rides, maybe for an ice cream cone, to pick apples or dig quahogs. Often this brought us to the beautiful coastal waters. I always found myself drawn to this particular spot on the bay and I wondered about the house beyond this magnificent stone arched entrance. Would you wonder?

1584 Path to the Beach, Plein Air Alla Prima


Yesterday's painting at the Jetty Park. I  had a nice time, it was a challenging day, very cloudy. It was fun sitting there watching the clouds change by the minute, when I finished up, I could see the rain falling on the horizon. Painting is 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite. $250.

Daily Painting | Portrait of Child | Small Oil Painting | Nate by Carol Schiff | 9x12 Original | NFS

It's been a long time since I have attempted a portrait.  When I first started painting, I thought I wanted to pursue that talent, but I soon realized how much more precise a portrait artist must be.  I knew I did not want to do that every day, however, I like to give it a try now and then.

NFS
When a new child entered our extended family, I promised the proud parents a portrait .  That was two years ago!   Today, I am humbled before those of you who practice this talent.

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

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.

Purchase here

 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.

Impressionism Seascape Sunset Oil Painting "Fire in The Sky" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Fire In The Sky is an oil painting in the palette knife technique. On a hot, late afternoon summer day, the sun started to set with an explosion of color. Quickly it slipped away. I was so happy to have seen it.

daily painter, price $95., surf painting,

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.

Daily Painting, Beach Scene, "Reel Her In" 8x10" Palette Knife Painting

This is the second time I have painted this scene.  The first time, several years ago, was a small 5x7.  I wanted to paint it larger, but couldn't find the image on my computer.  When I finally found it...I didn't have the size canvas I wanted to use (14x18) so, because I was frustrated I did it on the 8x10.



Purchase here
145 + shipping


I suppose this means I will repeat the process again at some unknown point in the future.




This time I painted with a palette knife and brush.  I like the texture that can be achieved with the knife.  I also have added some great "ocean" colors to my palette.



Who knows....maybe the next time I paint this scene, it will be an abstract!


This is the first painting.  Do you have a  preference?

Florida Coastal Landscape,Seascape Painting, "Kayaking II" Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Kayaking is always an adventure. One day I was thrilled to see two eagles soaring against the beautiful blue sky engaged in their acrobatic tumbling dance. You never know what is around the next corner. Alligators, or maybe today I'll come across a manatee...such gentle giants. The possibilities are endless!

Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Flower Painting, Floral Still Life "Hydrangea and Goldenrod" 8x6" SOLD

Another of my "chunky" floral still life.  The idea on these is to keep detail to a minimum with color, brushstrokes and shape catching you eye.

SOLD


I quickly sketched in very basic shapes, not being fussy but trying to capture enough of the flower shape to be recognizable.  I massed in dark under colors and then worked a little with local color.  Of course, I  pumped it up.




I worked with big strokes and lots of paint.

Thank you for viewing my art today.

Abstract Mixed Media, "All In A Row" 4x12" Original

I find myself being drawn more and more to the abstract and mixed media area of art.  In May I attended a wonderful workshop given by Carol Nelson.  She fueled my desire with her creative techniques and materials.  Since then, I have been trying to develop my own techniques.


Purchase here
99.95 + shipping
I included some of Carol's techniques and some of my own.  I like this piece in both a horizontal format or in a vertical format.  The sides are painted and do not require framing.



It can hang on the wall or sit on a shelf.  It has just a touch of gold leaf to capture the light.
I have to admit.......I really enjoyed creating this.

Florida Coastal Landscape,Seascape Painting, Roses,"Coastal Sea Roses"Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Coastal Sea Roses is a palette knife done with oils. Imagine the pop of bright pink, lacey sea roses. Their fragrance and delicate look are so captivating. You just have to stop and smell the roses. Impatiens spilling out of an old wooden window box, eating chowder and clam cakes and can you smell that sea air? 

This painting is SOLD, but prints and greeting cards are available HERE.

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.
