Bear Gap on the Blue Ridge, Oil Painting of N Carolina Mountains by Judy Batterson, Florida Artist

"Bear Gap on the Blue Ridge" Finally finished this mountain painting for a friend. We had a picnic here last fall, and the scenery was beautiful. But it was pretty high up for this Florida girl! Oil on canvas.

Small Seascape | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Anatomy of a Wave by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Oil Original

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.

Lifeguard Shack, 8x6 Oil on Canvas, Seascape



Palm Beach has not only luxurious homes and an abundance of Bentleys, it has a lovely public beach. Our state is quite diverse; we have scenes like the one above, also miles of pastureland with cattle, citrus groves, farmland, swamps, lakes, the Everglades, and theme parks. We have Carl Hiassen, who writes books about outlandish Florida characters. They are fiction, but I understand that his ideas come from the news. We are the state of mermaids, manatees, and hanging chads.

Art Sale, Daily Painting, Tropical Landscape, "Coconuts from Sanibel" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil

It's Wednesday, and that means art sale!  I like to think of it as a little reward for you loyal readers of my blog.  Today's painting is a peek at a tropical landscape scene.


purchase here
95 minus 20
This is one of two paintings I did of this tree, after a visit to Sanibel Island.  Sanibel Island is in the southern half of the state of Florida and considered as "tropical".  I live in Central Florida, which is considered "sub-tropical".  Being in the sub-tropics, we don't get coconuts growing on our palms, so I was attracted to something a little different.

Now that you know the story behind the painting, let's talk about the sale.  When you purchase the painting at the link above, you will be charged $95. plus shipping.  As soon as I am notified of your payment, I will credit your PayPal or credit card account $20.  That will bring the cost of the painting to $75. You must write ART SALE on the order to get the rebate!

Daily Painting, Seascape Painting, Ocean Painting, Beach Painting, "Celebrating Blue" 16x20x1.5" Oil

I wanted to do a seascape, or actually a beach painting, somewhere between an abstract and impressionism.  If this looks a little familiar, it is because I posted the study for this work a month or two ago.



Purchase here
495 + shipping

I wanted to record just my memories and impressions of trips to the beach.  I painted with a knife and tried to work quickly.

I tried not to think too much about the colors I was using or where I was putting them, but tried to keep it really instinctive.





I wanted plenty of texture in this piece.



It was a fun exercise, although I wish I had done a larger piece.  Maybe someday I will.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Spring in the Mountains

We have just returned home from a few weeks in the mountains of western North Carolina.  Earlier this year, we sold our second home there and replaced it with a condo in Waynesville.  We have been working hard, getting moved into the condo, painting every wall in sight and making it feel like home.

One afternoon I grabbed my camera and ran outside to capture the beautiful spring day and this is what I found.

I inherited a garden in front of our new home, and everything was coming alive at once...



Fiddleheads were popping up


Dogwood was blooming everywhere I looked in both pink.....



and white blossoms.  Tulips, lilac and azalea were everywhere and the dats were filled with the music of songbirds.


A drive to WaterRock Knob, off the Blue Ridge Parkway, showed less color at the higher elevation, but still beautiful to see.

For an Ohio girl, who has spent most of the last 50 years in Florida, it seemed all my memories of spring were spread out before my eyes.  Don't get me wrong, I truly love living in Florida, but when spring or fall calls, I head to the mountains.

Stay tuned, to see these images interpreted in oil.

Thanks for stopping by today.
