Window Flower Box Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "My Flower Box", 6x8" Oil

I think everyone loves window flower boxes, overflowing with beautiful flowers.


purchase here
110. + shipping


This small daily painting is from a memory of Cape Cod, where it seems everyone has flower boxes. It is painted on canvas panel, in oil paint, and finished with a light coat of varnish.




I could not resist posting a few other Cape Cod window  boxes.

I like the patriotic flavor here.



How cheerful is this?


I hope you have a great day!  Thanks for viewing my art today.

Thistle Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Textured Art, "Thistles" by Carol Schiff, 8x8x1.5" Oil

This small oil painting is a tribute to thistles. The lowly thistle, thought to be a weed, in my eyes, a brilliant floral beauty.

Purchase here
150. + shipping

 I photographed this thistle while taking a summer walk in the valley. Armed with my image, I painted it in oil, with lots of texture to suggest the spikey flower. Some of the texture comes from my use of the palette knife, and some of it was applied direct to the canvas. The sides of the canvas are finished, allowing it to be hung with or without a frame.



This is a picture of me, doing my favorite thing!




Thank you for viewing my art today.

Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Art, Rose Painting, 8x10 Still Life, "Rose Bowl" by Carol Schiff

Today's effort is a small bowl of roses.  I got very bogged dow in detail on this one.

Purchase here
165 + shipping
I am still trying to find that special balance between too loose and too tight.  Although I think this painting has merit, I do plan to use it as a jumping off place for another work.  Maybe next time I will hit that sweet spot I am looking for.

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.

SUMMER'S GONE, 6X6, OIL, SOLD


Don't you just love sunflowers?  They are so expressive the way they follow the sun with their heads.  I especially love the giant 7 foot tall ones.


I love the way they poke their heads between the slats of a fence as if they are saying hello and then they bow when their time is gone.

I am happy to announce that I have been invited to join DailyPainters.com.  I hope you will take the time to visit my gallery on their wonderful website.
