Abstract Painting, Four Seasons Art, Summer Painting, Daily Painting Small Oil Painting, 4x12x.75" Oil



Last week, I posted my "Spring" painting in my new Four Seasons Series.  Today is my impression of summer.



Purchase here

Are you old enough to remember the Four Seasons series, usually some type of wall decor, and almost always involving a tree in each of the seasons of the year?  My goal was to use only color to represent each season.

In this piece, I thought of bright blue skies, long hot summer days, turquoise seas, pink sunsets.  I created plenty of texture for added interest.

Two more seasons to do!!

Have a great day, in any season.

Today I am posting the 3rd of my abstract Four Seasons Series, Autumn.

 My goal was to represent each season, in an abstract form, using only color.  With this piece, I was thinking of pumpkins, falling leaves and shockingly blue skies.

And this is Summer.

I will be posting "Winter" soon.

I had fun with this series and hopefully, I "stretched" by abstract skills a little.





Thanks for reading my blog today.

Abstract Painting, Four Seasons Series - Winter, Small Abstract Oil Paintings, 4x12x.75" Oil on Canvas

This is the final installment of my Four Seasons Series, Winter.

With each painting, I tried to capture the feeling, of the season of the year, using only color.  It was a fun project to do.

Winter
 This is not a good picture of "Winter" The actual painting has much more color variation and saturation.  Try as I might, I could not get a better image.

Spring

Tried to capture that "spring" feeling of new grass, flowering trees etc.

Summer

Summer...hot and salty....time for the beach!

Autumn

Autumn, falling leaves against bright blue skies.
Thanks for viewing my art today!

Daily Painting, Floral Art, Small Oil Painting, Sunflower Painting, "SunnyFlowers" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil

Don't you just love sun flowers?  What could be unlikable about a giant flower, one you have to look up to?  Sunny, bright and full of energy with their big brown eyes and bobbing heads....they always make me happy.

 I wanted to do  a tribute to them, something free and full of movement.  I worked with my palette knife and tried to pop the color.  I left plenty of texture because I want this painting to be touched.



I enjoy my work in simple black frames.  A black frame is always complimentary, it showcases the painting so well.

Thanks for viewing my art today.

Daily Painting, Small Oil Paintings by Carol Schiff

I wanted to do a short post, and show you my ad on Folt Bolt.  What is Folt Bolt you ask?  Basically an online advertising agency out of Australia.  I found them on Facebook  and decided to give them a try.  I think it was worth it as it received over 600 likes.



I also wanted to show you this photo of a client's husband receiving his birthday present.



I love when a client takes the time to express how pleased they are with their new painting.  The little girl, who is the subject of the painting, looks pretty happy too.  

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Off on a New Journey!

Several years ago, I joined forces with a company that manufactures and sells giclee prints on wood panels.  It turned out to be a good move for me, and I was very disappointed when suddenly, the company was sold.  The new owners went in another direction and things were looking gloomy for me.

But now, after 8 months of work, we are finally moving forward again.  They recently sent me images of some of my new works on their products.  Not only, wood panel giclee's, but also pillows, shower curtains, totes and much more.

I was very pleased with the results, and want to show some of them to you.  Hopefully, you will soon find them on the shelves of a department store near you.

Angels of Parade Pillow

Burnt Sky Pillow

Darkness Shower Curtain

Fishy School Shower Curtain

Wakes Tote

Moon Over Miami On Wood Plank
Summer Heat Pillow

Sky Music on Wood Plank
I am delighted with the results!!

Have a Happy Day!

Stormy Landscape Painting | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Coastal Collision II by Carol Schiff | 11x14x1.5 Oil

This stormy landscape painting is a scene I see most every afternoon in the summer, here in Florida.  The warm breezes blow across the state from the west and collide with the cool ocean breezes from the east.  Instant Storm!

I painted this in oil and using a palette knife to capture the feel of impending doom.  You know that feeling.....the black clouds suddenly roll in...the temperature drops 10 or 15 degrees in what seems like seconds and the wind kicks in.  Time to run for cover!


I painted on 11x14x1.5" canvas and painted the sides black making framing an option.
