Small Seascape | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Morning Light by Carol Schiff | 8x10 Original Oil | SOLD

I have been spending so much time in the Blue Ridge Mountains, my trips to the beaches have suffered.  Time to roll out of bed before the sun, grapb a cup of coffee and go for a short drive to the sea.

SOLD
Just as I arrive, the sun starts it's slow climb above the horizon.  I have forgotten how peaceful and beautiful it is on the beach at this time of day.  Way down the beach, I can see a fisherman, but other than him we are alone with the birds who are looking for breakfast.

It is so enjoyable here, cool, serene.....I feel refreshed and ready to start my day.

Do you have a happy place too?

This painting was commissioned by a client who saw a similar work on my Etsy site.  The piece she wanted was already sold.  I was happy to do a similar painting in the size she desired.



I am overstocked on these daily paintings, so I have them on sale on my Etsy site this week.  I am offering a $15.00 rebate on any 5x7 or 6x8 painting sold.  Just write ETSY SALE on your order and I will credit your PayPal or Credit Card account.

Thank you for reading my blog today.

Dog Portrait, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 16x20x1.5 Animal Painting, SOLD

Today, I am posting a commission painting.  I find that doing a commission is a whole different ball game.  Do you agree?
Add caption

 The client was asking for three paintings of his two dogs.  One of each, and one of both animals.


detail
SOLD

This is the first painting.  I always second guessing myself when I work on a commission.  Does the client want this, or do that want that.  Is it too dull for them, or too bright, or too much detail, or not enough.  It is hard guessing what a perfect stranger would like!

Add to that the dreaded deadline!  In this case, I had only a short time to complete the artwork, due to my schedule.  What if I failed and produce a suitable painting in the allotted time?

While commissions are stressful for me, I always welcome them.....I just have to remeber the sense of accomplishment I have, when the project is accepted by the client.

I believe a little stretch is good for everyone, especially us artists


Thanks for reading my blog today......and keep painting!

Aunt Bee | Abstract Environmental Art by International Artist Arrachme

Memory Garden – Aunt Bee
Each image (flowers, and bees)  in a memory garden represents a loved one or family member.


Aunt Bee
Abstract Environmental Art
20" x 16"


Floral Landscape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Coneflower Painting, 12x16" Original Oil

I seem to be stuck....painting coneflowers!  It could be worse.

Purchase here
325 + shipping
also available as giclee print
I have been fascinated by coneflowers (echincea) every since I first saw them in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  First, I tried to grow them.  Not such good luck.  My thumb is only green when I paint.

detail
It's not that they are difficult to grow, but they must be deadheaded.  Since I am only in North Carolina for a few weeks at a time, I usually would fine brown flowers.  Before they could bloom again, I would be gone.


I added a few dandelions and a fiddlehead.  Hope you enjoy this piece.

Thank you for viewing my art today.

Although this is a departure from my usual style of painting, every once in a while I love to "play" with a variety of different media to create something exciting and fun.  This mixed media painting on paper is one of a series of wine paintings I did a couple of years ago.  I have a set of 3 of them matted and framed in my kitchen and I have to admit, they look great!  I'll post more wine paintings in the coming days.

This mixed media painting is matted with a white mat, mounted on foamboard and is ready to frame in any standard 12"x16" frame.  
It is enhanced with collage and metallic gold line work. 
Frame is not included.  Check out the companion pieces to this painting.

Coneflower Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil on Panel

We spent the month of April in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  It was winter-like when we arrived on April 1st, but within days the trees were covered in blooms.  Flowering pear and crabapple, dogwood, lilac and forsythia were visible everywhere.  I did my little Florida heart good to experience such a spring.

It was too early for one of my favorites from the mountains....coneflowers (echinacea).  I had lots of images from previous trips and painted several based on this favorite flower.

Just a simple little painting, but it pleases me.

It's the small things in life that make it worth living.  This week, for me, it was enjoying a peacful trip to the mountains.

I hope you find your peace this week.

Clear Skies | Seascapes by International Artist Arrachme


Calm, peaceful afternoon on the water.
 Seascape and sky  tell a happy story.
Relax.

Abstract Daily Painting, "Layers", Seascape, 6x8" SOLD

SOLD

Well, maybe it's not exactly abstract, but it's not exactly impressionistic either.  I easily get confused over all the different types of "abstract" works.



Therefore, I will just proclaim that it is painted  freely and freshly, just like the sea.

What would you call this style?

I am happy to announce that I am now represented by Florida Artists Gallery in historic Floral City, Florida.  This delightful gallery is filled with outstanding art and a cute cafe that is manned by a professional chef.  The building itself is also historic and was moved to this location years ago, where it sits on a garden-like lot in the center of town.  If you visit the Nature Coast of Florida, be sure to make this gallery one of your "must visit" places.

In fact, a great reason to see Floral City and visit the gallery, would be to sign up for my next workshop in nearby Inverness!  

Don't miss this opportunity to spend 3 fun filled days painting big, bold abstracts!  

Sign up today!

Tree painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil Landscape

We are rather tree challenged here in Florida.  We have beautiful palm trees, but when it comes to the huge leafy trees of my childhood, in the north, not so much.

Enter the live oak.  It's big, not really that leafy, but long, long beautiful branches, often draped with Spanish moss.

purchase here
110.
 This one is just a baby, but I couldn't resist painting it as it seemed to glow in the sunshine.

detail
 I painted with a combination of palette knife and brush which gave it a yummy texture.

I want to do more tree studies.  They are all so unique and so beautiful.

Thanks for viewing my art today.
