abstract seascape, oil seascape, palette knife painting, price - 110.,

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 Art, "SOAR", 24x36" Original Mixed Media SOLD

I have been busy with commissions since early December and finally found time to do another abstract.

SOLD


My painting group, Pieces of 8 is planning a group exhibition this summer at the local community college and we have all been working hard, getting our pieces ready.  The venue is fabulous and many entertainment giants have performed there, from Willie Nelson to Jerry Seinfeld to Mikhail Baryshnikov. The exhibition will be in the lobby, a huge room  with 30 ft ceilings.


I usually don't paint this large (24x36") because of difficulty storing and shipping but this had to be an exception.  I have a few more pieces to do for this exhibition and will post them as they are created.  I  don't know if they all have to be abstract as the other artists will be showing many different media.  I would love to hear your opinion......should I stick to abstract??

Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Small Seascape, "Celebrating Blue" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil SOLD

I worked this small seascape with a knife, trying to mimic the action of the waves with my strokes.

SOLD
I usually work from images on my computer, but this time the image was in my head.  I tried to fill the canvas with shades of blues and greens, and also to suggest a little of the beach.


MY PRINTS
I feel I captured the spirit of the waves rushing to shore, and I must say, it was a most enjoyable experience.  I plan to try this technique again.

Thank you for reading my blog today.
