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.

 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.


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

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


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.

purchase here
100 + shipping
 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.

'Through The Aspen Trees' (Diptych #1')    'Through The Aspen Trees' (Diptych #1') by Lena Owens  Painting on Wrapped Canvas (Palette Knife) Autumn is a time when sugar and cinnamon colors crowd every corner of the streets and every leaf seems to turn into flowers. Even when under a light blue sky, the wind sends a chill contrasting the warmth of the atmosphere.  #OLenaArt #LenaOwens #scenic #nature #birchtrees

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.

Have a rosey day!

Until a few years ago, I was a runner. Now, with back problems and a bad knee, I walk for exercise. There is one special route I like, no traffic and no scary dogs. While walking this route I pass a pond with two lovely swans. Usually I go in the morning and they just sparkle in the sunlight. This is a pastel I did of one. It is 9x11, matted to 16x18.

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!

purchase here
275 + shipping

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.


Thanks for reading my blog today......stay dry out there!

Abstract Seascape Oil Painting, Tropical Waters, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 11x14x1.5" SOLD

Continuing on my tropical journey to the Florida Keys.  Today's post is my impressions of the sea off the coast of southern Florida.

 It is hard to find more fun (in the studio), than to dig into a big pile of paint, with your knife, and just go to town.  Adding and subtracting values and hues........puts me in the zone every time.

As much as I love creating all this yummy texture, I can only do it for a few days, before I start to crave a little structure and strong composition.  Each day I work on this coral reef series, I get a little less abstract and and little more impressionist.

Join me on my journey.....

Oleander Trees in Seville by Ann McCann 16 X 20 Oil

The parks in Sevilla, Spain were filled with flowering trees when we visited them in May 2016. Here I painted a park walkway of flowering oleander trees against the lofty palm trees.  I initially thought they were crape myrtle trees like we grow in Texas. They even trained bougainvillea into trees.

Abstract Seascape Painting, 8x16" Palette Knife Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

We are happy to be back in Florida, and I wanted to mark the occassion with a new abstract.

Purchase here
I really enjoyed creating this art.  Sometimes it is nice to just get in the zone, no particular plan, and let the subconscious take over.

I love playing with paint and these represent some of my favorite colors.  I didn't plan to do a seascape, but it feels like one, especially of the tropical waters in the Caribbean Islands.

The last few months have been hectic for me.  This is just what I needed to calm me down.

Have a great day and thanks for reading my blog.
