Daily Painting, Original Seascape, "Off Shore Storm" by Carol Schiff 6x8" Oil

 The other day my husband and I went for a walk on the beach.  Although it was sunny when we left home, ten minutes later black clouds were rolling in over the waves.


Purchase here

The clouds had not yet completely obscured the horizon leaving a strip of aqua sunlight on the sea.




When I came home, I went straight to the easel, painting this from memory.

Small Seascape | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Anatomy of a Wave by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Oil Original

This small seascape is a study of a cresting wave. Ask any surfer, it's all about the waves.  Waves appear to be all the same, but they are all unique.  I am finding that out, more and more as I paint one of my loves ......seascapes.

Panoramic Seascape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Impressionist Seascape, 8x16x.75" Oil

I am trying to break my current addition to painting flowers, so I dug through my files and found a great image of the ocean.  I have a new (for me) size canvas, 8x16" that I thought would work well for the image.

I have to admit, I enjoyed painting this scene.  My choices of subject matter are always based on emotion and on this day......the waves filled my need for action.

Thanks for reading my blog today....If I were in Florida, I'd be off to the beach.

Blue and Green Paintings, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

The past few weeks have been full of days on the couch and doctor visits.   As a result, I have fallen behind on my daily art projects.

I thought this would be a perfect time to review a few on my favorites from over the years.

To help narrow it down, I selected paintings that feature blue and green hues.































All of these works are available, either as original or giclee print on canvas at my Etsy site,

Thank you so much for viewing my art today. 
 Hopefully, I will be posting new work in the next few days.

Teacup Lamps and Dinnerplate Clocks, unique lamps and clocks

As much as I love to paint, I also have a little side hobby I enjoy.  My son and daughter-in-law have joined me in a little side business, making lamps and wall clocks from vintage dinnerware.

Purchase here
 For me, the attraction is the thrill of the hunt.  I visit estate sales and vintage stores, looking for the perfect pieces of vintage dinnerware.

My daughter in law assembles the pieces into beautiful lamps.  My son drills out the assembled pieces and adds brand new electrical components.

Viola! a  fun and unique lamp.  The lamp travels back to my house for photography and storage until that special person purchases it.  Then I wrap it carefully in bubble wrap and stryofoam to ship to your home.

 I find many of my teapots in North Carolina, during my visits there.  I had to have this leopard print teapot!

and this cute little black and yellow polk a dot piece.

 These are just a few of our lamps.  We also do commissioned lamps, using colors you request, or even your own special dinnerware.....maybe that special plate or cup from your grandmother.  Click here to see our full collection of lamps and clocks.



Wouldn't these be cute in a child's room?  They are made with commenorative plates.


Thank you for viewing my blog today.  Next post, we will be back to art....I promise!
