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 Abstract Painting, "Feeling My Way", 12x12"


Moving into a new area of work is always both exciting and frustrating.  When I sit down to try an abstract, I feel like I am jumping off a cliff.


On this piece I used acrylics, oils and ink.  I also included some cheesecloth for texture.


I am finding that although abstract looks very simple, and free, it requires much planning.

Have a great weekend and thank you for viewing.

Abstract Daily Painting, 8x8" "INDECISION", SOLD



Every once in a while I have to try something abstract.  This one is all about texture and the red under painting.



I mixed sand from the beach into the gesso.



It's always fun to experiment, especially when I start to take my painting a little too seriously.
