daily painting, floral still life, small oil painting, sunflower art, sunflower still life,

Are you up for another landscape painting?  I seem to be stuck in that genre these days.  I did a little traveling this summer and have so many beautiful landscape images lined up to paint.

This one is from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, on the North Carolina side....Bryson City entrance.  If you have ever been there, you will recognize this immediately.

Purchase here
150 + shipping

 Normally, this scene has a steady flow of kids and adults floating slowly down the river in tubes.  Yes, it is Deep Creek!  A beautiful area with lots of folks having picnics on the banks of the creek.

You can watch the tubers and small children playing in the water, or watch the fly fishermen trying for a trout.  If you on the energetic side, you can go for a mountain hike or maybe just a leisurely stroll to beautiful Thomas Falls.  The perfect no stress day.

Thank you for reading my blog today.

Flower Painting, A GLASS OF SUNSHINE by Carol Schiff, 8x6" Oil

Everybody needs a little sunshine in their life..............I hope this flower painting brings some to you.



90 + 6.50 in USA





It's hard not to smile when you see a bunch of sunflowers, either in the fields or sitting on  a table.


Blogger is misbehaving today and doesn't want me to post more than one image.  Hopefully the next post will be more complete.

Have a great weekend and thank you for viewing and commenting on my blog.  By the way...please pin this!

Datura, 6x9 Floral Original Oil Painting by Carmen Beecher



This beautiful flower was blooming in Silver Springs State Park. I was peacefully painting the river while the glass bottom boat floated by, as well as the occasional kayaker. We artists took many pictures of the huge Angel Trumpet (otherwise known as Datura) plant.

Seascape Painting, Small Oil Painting, "The Green Sea" by Carol Schiff, 8x10x1.5"

Living on the coast of Florida, I love going to the beach for inspiration.

Purchase Here
150 + shipping

The mood and colors of the sea change drastically and often, so you never know which sea you will find.


Some days it is hot and hazy, or choppy or calm as a lake.  The color may be blue, green, turquoise or maybe muddy.  When a storm moves in, everything changes quickly.

The mood of my seascapes also change.  Some of  them are full of texture and color, some not so much.  This one was quite a challenge for me, I just couldn't mix the colors I wanted or make my brush behave.  It took a few tries, but eventually I created a painting I was happy with.

Still life Bottle , Palette Knife Art, "Vintage Bottle" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil Still Life

I have become slightly obsessed with vintage bottles, well, maybe a little more than slightly.  I love the idea of these bottles, most of them reclaimed from the earth, crusty and sometimes pearlized.  I like to think about how they were used when they were new.....and if they have a crystal cross on top (called a cross bottle) all the better!

Purchase here
100 + shipping

This one, obviously does not have a cross on the top.  It does have any absolutely gorgeous color, kind of a cobalt violet.  I am told the it started out as clear glass, but due to magnesium in the glass, has aged into a beautiful hue.




The other thing I love, is painting with wild abandon with loads of thick, creamy, oil paint and a combination of palette knife and brush.  So yes, this little painting hits my buttons on several levels.



Some days, I just go through the motions, and the resulting painting usually shows it,  but this one was pure joy!  I would love for you to pin it!

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.
