Flower Painting, Daily Painting, "Sunshine Mix" by Carol Schiff, 8x6" Oil SOLD

Today's flower painting is a little reminder that spring is not to far away! It seems like this must be the longest winter in the history of the world!
SOLD
 I liked the fresh brushwork and the abstract shapes in this painting



I like painting flowers because I love the vibrant colors and I can make the shapes whatever I want them to be.  Most of my flower paintings are free of detail and stress.  I almost feel like I am playing when I paint them.  The next time you are close to tearing your hair out, I highly recommend, step back and take a deep breath.....and work on a flower painting!



Don't forget to pin it!

Flower Painting, "Spring Pansies in the Park" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil SOLD

Pansies are spring flowers in most parts of the world, but here in the tropics, we see them in the winter.  I found these  in downtown Asheville,  NC

SOLD
Pansies have always been a favorite of mine.  Even as a child, I loved their cute little faces, so it was a natural for me to paint them.

Painted on canvas panel, in oil,


Happy Day!

Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Interior Still Life, White Chair by Carol Schiff, 8x10.75" Still Life

I have always admired artists who do interior paintings.  Finally, I found a composition in my home that seemed to work.  My pot of tulips on the window sill were casting long shadows on the white chair next to it.

Landscape Daily Painting "Mountain Wildflowers", 6x8" SOLD

Happy Monday to you!

It's always nice to wake up to something cheerful, especially on a Monday, so I hope this little daily painting fills the bill for you.


Not my usual painting of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this one is from those grown up mountains in the northwest.  You know those real mountains, those rugged mountains, those manly mountains!

It seems to me that everything is more rugged in the west whether we are talking mountains, oceans, bears, seagulls, trees etc.  Everything seems tougher and bigger and maybe a little scarier!

SOLD

We are a little more beaten down, or should I say, gentler on the east coast.  One thing that does not change, is the beauty of our country, no matter where you are!

Make this a great week!

 It was a beautiful day, and not long after this hike, we had a picnic.  Yummy sandwiches on home made bread, fresh fruit, delicious apple cake from the orchard, and a beautiful view.  Life at it's best!
