Sunset Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Sunset in Costa Rico" by Carol Schiff, 8x10" Oil Framed

Today I decided to do something a little different and post a sunset painting with a frame.  I love this silver custom made frame and think it looks so fabulous with this painting.

This photo does not really do it justice, but it is as good as I could get.  I don't like selling framed paintings because of the difficulty involved in shipping them, but decided to make this an exception to the rule.

                 happy new year to you all!!!

Merry Christmas 2014



The big day is almost here and I wanted to take the opportunity to let you all know how much I appreciate your support throughout the year.  My blog has had over 1,000 posts, something I never imaged when I started.  I cannot express my gratitude those of you who are interested enough in my work to follow this blog.  It is a very humbling experience,

In this, my last post before Christmas, I wish each and every one of you a wonderful holiday season and the best new year ever.

Abstract Seascape, "Sunset" by Carol Schiff, 11x14 Acrylic

Living next to the sea, I try to visit the beach at daybreak as often as possible.  Of course, this means starting my day a little earlier than usual.


$135. + 15


To make my life a little easier, I decided to do  a sunset, a memory of my visits on the west coast of Florida.

I added some texture to the canvas and attacked with my acrylics.  Acrylics are always risky for me.  I don't use them often enough to feel in control.  I think, my goal for 2013 will be to use them on a more regular basis and see where they may take me.  I enjoy abstract and mixed media and acrylics are the media of choice for these works.

I would love to hear any advise you wish to share on acrylics.

Abstract Seascape, Daily Painting, Abstract Mxed Media "Sea Rhythm" 6x8" SOLD

The sea is so fascinating to me.  I love the thought of all the life under the surface of the sea....movement as the waves are pulled to the shore, tiny sea creatures burrowing into the sand..........

SOLD




Jelly fish that look like man-made objects, balloons, or aliens...........



So many interesting and exciting things going on that we are totally unaware of.  All we see is the beautiful surface of the sea.

This piece is inspired by that thought.  The paint is an example of pouring technique, along with texture and metallic elements.  Although the metallic has photographed in a warm color, it is actually silver.  Much experimenting going on in my studio these days. Feel free to pin it!

Daily Painting Seascape in Oil, 4x12" "Tropical Waters" SOLD


I love to do seascapes, especially with a palette knife, as it allows me to use plenty of texture.  I  like working with the ocean, it seems like a different place minute by minute.


How cool to have all this texture and all these shades of blue, aqua and green.


Being an artist is a good thing....I am very grateful.

Have a wonderful day!

Abstract Mixed Media, 10x10 ,Poured Paint, "Shade of Blue"

I am continuing on my path of abstraction and mixed media.  The highlight of this piece, in my opinion, is the intense and gorgeous color.  I am just not sure that the images will portray the depth seen in the actual piece.
