Abstract Landscape, "God's Glory" by Carol Schiff, Palette Knife Abstract

We were driving through the fields of Georgia one morning, on one of our many journeys from Florida to North Carolina, when the sun burst over the horizon.  I was so happy I had my camera handy.

Does it show that I had a ball painting this one?

14x18" Oil

Maybe I went a little crazy with the colors.

Speaking of journeys, this is my second attempt at painting this image.  The first attempt was several years ago and is residing in Paris these days.


 It's a little more subdued.

Au Revoir

Marsh Landscape, Knife Painting, COLORS OF THE MARSH by Carol Schiff, 8x8x1.5" oil

The sun is quickly sinking below the horizon and within minutes the colors of the marsh will disappear.





 My goal here was to suggest the beauty and colors of the marsh in late summer.  I wanted to use plenty of texture and thick paint to do so.



I really love the gallery wrap canvases from "The Edge".  I like the chunky shape of this small 8x8" with the 1.5" depth that gives this small painting more presence.



Thanks for reading my blog today :)

Small Abstract Landscape, "Peaks" by Carol Schiff, 8x8x1.5 Oil

I paint impressionism and abstract and today I felt the need for a small abstract landscape.  We spend lots of time in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina which may have been my inspiration here.  I think, though, it reminds me more of the southwestern mountains.  Maybe it's the colors.

Thank you for viewing this small abstract landscape of the mountains.  Next, I'm thinking abstract seascape!
