My artwork on distressed wood planks

Something new and exciting is happening in my studio!  Several years ago I agreed to license some of my work through a company who manufacturers gorgeous giclee prints on distressed wood planks.

Small Seascape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Churning", 6x8" Oil

This small seascape is a study for a much larger piece.  The only question in my mind is "How large?"

Purchase here
110. plus shipping
I am very happy with the understated color which makes the brighter hues really pop.  I am not sure if it would be call an abstract or impressionistic.......what do you think?

What I do know, I really enjoyed painting it and want to try it again and go BIG!

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Abstract Seascape, Daily Painting, "Seascape Sunrise" SOLD

Now that the festivities are over, it is time to get back to work.  I love a vacation, but it is a good feeling to get back to my routines and spend time in the studio again.

SOLD




I am still working on commission portraits, so it feels good to go to the other side and do a light-hearted abstract piece.



Living close to the ocean, the sea turns up in many of my abstracts.

Have a great day!

Abstract Daily Painting,SOLD, Seascape, "Green Wave" 6x8"


Although I have been painting for over 20 years, I find, most of the time, it is a struggle, a case of give and take.  Some days I am pleased with the end results, some days, not so much!



This little painting is one I like.  It seemed to fall off my brush with very few strokes.  It is a very simple scene, and not to everyone's taste, but it made me feel good.

Thank you for viewing my little daily paintings.

Daily Painting, Abstract Seascape, The Sea by Carol Schiff, 6x8" SOLD

SOLD

Time for another little abstract painting.  The more I paint, the more I want to experiment with abstracts and mixed media.




I try to keep a limited palette and have a rough composition in mind.  From there, anything goes and I am always surprised by the outcome.


Many abstracts will  work in a landscape or portrait format.  I think this is one that does.  Do you have a preference?

Here is a fun thought I found of Facebook last week. Finish this sentence, "You know you're an artist when....".

I will start off with this...You know you're an artist when you hide all the "pretty fruit" from you family until you have finished your still life.

You know you're an artist when you constantly find yourself  covered with paint on the strangest body parts.
