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

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.

Purchase here

 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!

 Meet Oscar!  Well maybe that is not his real name, but I have come to think of him as an Oscar.

Some of the first paintings I sold, were pet portraits.  It has been more years than I want to admit, since I have done any.  I guess the urge is still there, because, when I see adorable pups I have to run to my easel.

If you have a special image of your "best friend", send it to me.  Maybe you will see your little charmer here too.

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Figurative Painting,Fisherman painting, Sportsman Painting, daily painting, small oil painting, 9x12" oil by Carol Schiff Studio

This is a very special painting for me.  My grandson, Kevin, is obsessed with fishing.  He probably has 20 or more rod and reels for everything from deep sea fishing to fly fishing.  I surprised him this Christmas with a painting of one of his best ever fishing days.

He was very surprised and will take it to his dorm room in the fall; a perfect reminder of days at home.

This image is available as a print on canvas here.

Thanks for vewing my art today.

 I found it a little difficult to get the sketching correct as this guy is all fur.  Thanks to my friend, Ted Fuhrer, for allowing me to use another of his fine photographic images.

I put a few impasto details in the face.

This image is also avaiable as a giclee print in several sizes here.

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Botanical Painting,Flower Art "Snuggling Anthurium" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

This is an oil painting done with a palette knife. I love the way these anthuriums nestle against each other for support and strength. One is reaching for the sunlight while the other is content to rest in the shade. Are you basking in the sun?

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.

Force of Nature | Original Abstract Impressionist Seascape Painting by International Artist Arrachme

Abstract Impressionist Seascape
Exhibiting in Morocco

Daily Painting, Oil, "The Beach at Sanibel", 6x8" SOLD

A recent trip to Sanibel brought me plenty of images to paint. Of course, the beach had to be the star.

I had not visited the area for many, many years, and I must admit that I forgot how beautiful it is.  The water is aqua and clear, much like the tropical waters of the Caribbean Islands.

I passed this little group of sea oats every morning on the path to the sea.  My favorite activity was to walk the beach as the sun was rising, with only the occasional fisherman or shell hunter and lots of pelicans and gulls  for company.

Small Floral Still Life, "Tulips and Sunflower" 8x6"

It may not feel like it where you live, but winter is on it's last legs and soon spring flowers will be bursting out of the ground.  Tulips are one of those flowers that mean spring to me.

$90 + 6.50

Living in Florida, most of the tulips I see these days are in the florist shop.  Some years, I get lucky, and visit North Carolina when they are blooming.

These came from the grocery store.  Lately, I have been coming home with more flowers than food which tends to upset my husband.   I tell him flowers are edible, but he is not impressed with my knowledge.

Tulips are so elegant.  They remind me of ballet dancers with their graceful poses.  Like most things so beautiful, they don't last as long as I would like.

Daily Painting | Bird Painting | Wildlife Painting | It's My Tern by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Oil

"It's my Tern" but it could be "Your Tern".

$89. 95 + 6.50

I found these guys on the beach....actually they were two of about 50.  If you know your terns, you know they arrive in large flocks.  The flock acts as one unit and is so much fun to watch.  They swoop down on the beach, each one of them looking in the same direction.  If you get too close, they move a few steps in unison, always moving and looking as one.

I think this is one good tern..........

after another!

And my tern to have a little fun :-)

Cybertot, 8x10 Oil on Canvas by Carmen Beecher

I couldn't resist getting a shot of this little techie guy playing on his phone in a coffee shop. I love the way the sun lights up his red hair. What a cutie! 

I now have the date for my one-woman show in Middleburg, Virginia: April 22nd. More details will follow as the time gets closer. Spring in Middleburg is lovely anyway, so I'm very happy to have an art event there.
