Flower Painting | Floral Still Life | Daily Painting | Horizontal Point of View II by Carol Schiff, 11x14 Oil

If this painting looks familiar to you......it should! Yes, my blog header is very similar... I painted it last year in a 6x8" format and have enjoyed painting flowers every since.

$176 + 16




I liked the original painting and wanted to see if I could paint larger using this same technique.  I have to say I  was pleased with the results.


This one is 11x14, but I think it still shows the same freshness and simplicity that I was trying to obtain.  Thank you for viewing my daily painting today.

Pansy Painting, Flower Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Perky Pansies" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil, SOLD

On a cold January morning a flower painting seems perfect to start the day.

SOLD

This little piece sold at our group Christmas sale last month.  Thank you Helen Wheatly for your purchase and your very kind words.

When I see pansies, one of my favorite flowers, I always remember coming to visit my grandmother.  We lived in Ohio and a winter trip to Florida was always welcomed.  My grandmother would always have her yard planted with pansies, which are a winter flower in Florida.

Stay warm today....wherever you are!

PS:  I will soon have some exciting news to share with you.....stay tuned in!

Floral Still Life Painting, Daily Painting, "A Rose is a Rose" by Carol Schiff, 9x12x1.5"

I was in the zone of this one and able to complete it very quickly.  My palette knife was slinging paint.....maybe it had to do with the music I was playing.

You may recognize this set up as I have painted it before.  Last time it looked like this:



I enjoy painting the same object or scene in different styles.

Floral Still Life, "The Beauty of Life" 8x6"

Time for another of my small floral still life paintings.  The title of the painting is a reminder that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

$96 + 10



The flowers loosely represented are hydrangea, goldenrod and Queen Ann's Lace.  To many the goldenrod and Queen Ann's lace are weeds.  To me, they were just the thing to brighten up my little display of hydrangea blossoms.


Here's hoping you have a weekend full of unexpected beauty and joy.

It's spring.....sigh!  The perfect time to paint flowers...........



SOLD
I don't know about you, but I was beginning to think that winter would never go away!  I now what you're thinking...."she lives in Florida???)  Well. true, but even in Florida we have seen day after day of piles of snow and cars sliding off the road, although it was on the nightly news.  We feel for those of you who had to suffer through it first hand and we are happy that it is gone.

So lets all celebrate a new beginning.



Hope you pin it!
