California Landscape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 11x14x1.5" , "Off PCH" by Carol Schiff Studio

My good friend, and excellent photographer, Ted Fuhrer,  has done it again, supplying me with so many inspiring images to paint from.  On of the many places he has lived was the coastal region of California.



Purchase here
225 + shipping 
Ted, I hope you think I did justice to your work.

I am always in awe of the western coast of our country.  Living on the east coast is great, and I am so blessed to be here. We have gentle surf, warm water, island music.... But to me, the west coast is larger than life.  So rugged, so big, a constant test to exist there. The boulders are larger than houses, the mountain streams are full of rushing rapids. The pioneer spirit is still alive there.  I cannpt wait to visit again.

Small Seascape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil "Crashing Wave" by Carol Schiff Studio SOLD

In the past, I painted lots of seascapes, but in recent years, my focus has been on landscapes and flowers.  Today, I went back to my roots....kind of.


 I wanted to do a seascape, but something different than the past.  I found one of my images of the surf and cropped it very closely.

I tried to paint with a variety of strokes and get plenty of action into the scene.  I finished with scattering some "foam" .  I enjoyed trying to bring something new to an old subject.


Thank you for reading my blog today!

Botanical Fine Art Painting, Butterfly,Nature "PURPLE VANDA" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe




I love purple and I love orchids! I moved to Florida in 2011 after living in New Jersey for 50 years. The climate in Florida is semi-tropical and orchids literally grow in, on and around trees! They are super fun to paint, ranging in all sizes, bizarre shapes and fantastic colors. In this painting I decided to show how this Vanda orchid grows off a tree branch. The branch was done in graphite so as not to distract from the beautiful flower. I couldn't resist putting in a butterfly just for even more fun!

I painted with brush and palette knife, creating texture for interest.  I popped the autumn colors, for the same reason.

Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Wildlife Painting, Bird Art, 6x8" Robin in Oil, SOLD

When I was a kid growing up in northern Ohio, I always anxiously awaited the return of robins, knowing winter was gone when they came.  I wondered where they spent the winters....now I know....North Carolina!

SOLD
   Well, anyway, that is where this bird spent the winter and where my photographer friend, Ted Fuhrer snapped an image of him.  Thanks for allowing me to use it, Ted.



I really like this in a chunky black frame!

Thanks for reading my blog today.  I hope you see a robin in your tree.

Abstract Painting, Small Abstract, Alcohol Inks, Experimenting



I am finally writing a post in my new home!  It has been a long and stressful journey, from Melbourne, FL to Asheville NC.  I know I am home, because I am finally painting, posting and doing all those art related activities that were a part of my life for 25 years.  Welcome home!

This is an experiment with alcohol inks.  I purchased the inks, as a change from my oils, but my move has gotten in the way of experimenting with them.  I did find this little sample to be interesting and have lots of ideas on ways to use them in the future.  Have you tried them?  I am open to suggestions and techniques.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

A Little French Landscape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 8x10x1.5" Oil SOLD

In my last post, I showed a mountain landscape commission.  Today I am posting the second landscape my client ordered.

He has been lucky enough to live in many fabulous locations during his career.  This  painting is also from one of his photographs of his many travels....the beautiful French countryside.

SOLD
I must say, I felt a little envy when I saw this beautiful scene.  Looks like it came straight out of a movie, don't you think?
