Large Landscape Painting, Storm Painting, "StormFront" by Carol Schiff, 24x30x1.5" Original Oil Painting

In the tropics, the storms come in quickly and violently!  This large landscape painting attempts to convey the power and drama of these events.

I painted with a palette knife and tried to keep all the strokes visible and strong. 

Some areas have extremely thick paint.

This was a study for a 48x60" piece that I painted.

Abstract Triptych, "Confetti" 5x15" Oil

Today, I am posting something new to first abstract triptych!  I really enjoyed working on this and hope to do more in the future.

110 + 12.50

I have not quite figured out how to photograph these yet...something I need to work on!

It is on three 5x5" gallery wrap canvases with the sides painted black.  Each piece is signed on the side.

It works in both a vertical or horizontal composition.

Here is a vertical view.

Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Tropical Landscape Painting | Island House by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Oil SOLD

When I was a little girl, growing up in the corn fields of Ohio, I dreamed of palm trees and the sea.  When I first saw the ocean, when I was nine years old,  I knew I would live there.

This daily painting of a tropical landscape, made me wonder how many other little girls have that same dream.  Ocean breezes and balmy breezes are powerful thoughts when you are shoveling snow, day after day, in sub-zero weather.

 This little house is in the Bahama's.  A blooming Poinciana tree  brightens the landscape.  The nice thing about dreams.....sometimes they do come true!

Thanks for viewing my blog today....and keep on dreaming!
