Blue Study Floral, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 12x16" Oil on Canvas Covered Panel

Have you ever done a painting, featuring just one color?

Purchase Here
 I have to say, it is not easy, but an excellent exercise.  At first, it is easy to see warm blues, from cool blues, but as time goes on, they all start blending together.  At least, that is my experience.


It was a relief to work on the flowers, just to ge a different color on the canvas.

Next up, a red painting?  There is a saying that reds are the most difficult.

Have a happy day!

Small Floral Still Life, Pink Beauty 6x8", Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

I wanted to practice painting flowers, and found a reference in my files.

Purchase here

Trying hard to put into practice the techniques Elio Camacho tries to push into my head.  Brushwork, color relations, composition, the bride!  Not sure if I was successful, but, there is always tomorrow!

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

How could I resist these beautiful poppies?

Available as a giclee print


If you have taken pictures of flowers, that you would like to share with me, I would love to see them.

Contemporary Still Life in Pastel, "Mom's Eyeglasses," by Amy Whitehouse


Pastel, 6"x8" $75

This still life of eyeglasses represents
a challenging pastel exercise:
count your strokes and finger smudges, keeping
the number to 100 or fewer.
The purpose of the exercise is to spend more time
observing than painting,
in order to make each stroke of the paste count
and be the right, correct stroke the first time.
No erasures or corrections allowed!

Artichoke Giclee' Canvas Print, Still Life Giclee Canvas Print, Artichokes of Roma by Carol Schiff, daily painting

I have been very busy adding giclee' prints to my Etsy site.  It has given me an opportunity to review some of my sold paintings.  I have enjoyed visiting with these "old friends" and though I would post a few.

Today  I wanted to show you this painting from a trip I took to Roma a few years ago.  I rented an apartment in Campo di Fiori, which is historical piazza.  One morning, I was surprised to see the piazza had been turned into a farmer's market for the day.  These were real farmers selling their fresh, beautiful produce.  I took lots of photos and when I returned home this was the first painting I created.

purchase here
50+ with free shipping



The painting has sold, but I am happy to offer it as a giclee' canvas print in numerous sizes. If you look closely, you may be able to see a few Italian words that I hid in the painting.

The giclee's are high quality canvas and inks, professionally printed, gallery wrapped and finished with a semi-gloss protective coating.  They come to you ready to hang.  This piece is available from 8x10x1.5" to over 24x36x1.5".

Happy Day!

Dogwood Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil on panel

I had an empty wall in my house.....unheard of for an artist!!  After much deliberation, I decided I wanted to hang a couple of florals I painted a few months ago.

Dreaming of Dogwood

  I wanted to inspire myself to try more of this style, very loose, and painted with lots of transparent colors and lots of medium.


Daffodil Days

So far, I have had a problem trying to dupicate the look!!!

A further complication.....the original paintings are 6x8" and I needed  larger pieces for my wall.






That was a problem I could solve.  I ordered giclee prints on canvas, increasing the size of the prints.  I have to say they came out wonderful.  I even manipulated the color slightly on the dogwood to work better in my room.  Thankfully, I was able to take high resolution images of both paintings, allowing them to be printed in the size I desired without losing detail in the  image.


Now, I just have to keep practicing until I am able to duplicate my technique.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Bromeliad Painting, Small Oil Painting, Garden Painting, Daily Painting, 8x16x.75" Oil

I like all kinds of flowers, but bromeliads are one of my favorites.  Their varities are endless and they usually thrive with little or no help....just what I need!

purchase here
I want to thank Pat Garvey, photographer, for the use of his image as a reference.  He captured the most wonderful light, which is what attracted me to this subject matter.

There is a lot going on in this painting, and I had to edit myself several times.
