Nancy's Marsh Sunset, 12x6" SOLD

I am happy to do commissions as I enjoy the challenge of painting from another's viewpoint.

In this case, a very nice woman sent me her husband's wonderful image of a sunset over the marsh to work from.  We went for a non-traditional composition to compliment both the image and her other artwork.

She gave me permission to paint in any style and I chose to work with a palette knife.  Both of us were pleased with the results.

Hunkered Down, 6x8" Oil Original by Carol Schiff

In Florida, we when we say "hunkered down" we are usually referring to a hurricane experience.  Pelicans often pose in this manner, which to me is "hunkered down".  I think in reality, he is sleeping or resting up for his next meal.  Check out my site at for more Florida paintings.
