Daily Painting on Sale, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painter, "Apple on the Tree", Carol Schiff artist, 6x8" Original oil

I never know what genre a painting like this falls into.  Is it a landscape?  Is it a still life?  I think it may be a landscape because it has not been "arranged".

This apple is from my favorite orchard in North Carolina, just outside of Waynesville.  Most of the year it is very quite there, but in the fall, it is the place to be.  The orchard also has a bakery and long, long lines exist all day, every day.  I have stood in line many times myself to buy their delicious apple cider donuts or cakes, fritters and pies.

Thank you for reading my blog today.

Marsh Landscape with herons, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 9x12x.75" Oil

This little painting on linen, is a study for a 30x40" commission that I am working on.


purchase here
190 + shipping

I painted several small studies, until the client was happy with the composition.


I think this has a slightly "romantic"feel about it, quite different than my usual pieces.  I kept the brushwork and the colors softer than my usual works.

When I first started painting, there were so many rules to learn.  I never knew what the finished piece would look like and usually started without a specific feel in mind.  After all these years, I am finally feeling a little control in my work, but, oh so much more to learn!

I know for me, this is the appeal of painting, always trying to challenge myself and escalate my skills.  Very frustrating and also very rewarding and ALWAYS interesting!

Have a great day!

 When I was a child, growing up in Ohio, this was my dream.  Tropical waters, palm trees, sailboats.  I am blessed that my dreams came true.

I always want to put a little texture in my paintings.  My palette knife is my favorite tool.

Summer in he Blue Ridge Mountains, Landscape Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 11x14", SOLD

 

It looks like summer in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  As our lives change from day to day, Mother Nature is telling us,that all will someday be well.  The earth is surviving very well without us, thank you, and it is up to us humans to change our routines as life will go on, with or without us.

Purchase here


I would prefer it went on with us!

Although the Blue Ridge Parkway was closed, for some time, it is now open and giving people in the area a place to drive and walk and enjoy nature.

This is an 11x14" original oil painting.  The 1.5" deep sides are painted black, allowing it to be hung with or without a frame.

Stay safe!
