Granbury Sunrise by Sheri Jones

Granbury Sunrise by Sheri Jones
10 x 8 oil on canvas
I painted this on location Saturday morning at the break of dawn. A storm was brewing and the clouds were moving fast. We had a wonderful display of the morning light but the air was feeling heavy. There was a light mist after we got our painting on. As soon as we loaded the car and headed out it came a downpour. It rained for hours and I was so happy we started early and avoided getting wet!

A Fresh New Day by Sheri Jones

A Fresh New Day
24 x 36 oil on canvas
This is a painting I created from a field study. The location is not far from home and easy to get to early. Watching the fresh new day reveal itself was a great reward. This painting was created with a palette knife and the paint was flying. It was such fun it seemed to paint itself.
This painting is available for purchase.

A Great Beginning by Sheri Jones

A Great Beginning by Sheri Jones
30 x 40 oil on canvas
I created this from an 8x10 field study I did in the spring time. I like to recreate a scene, changing and improving the original study. Painting on location allows you to see subtle colors photography never picks up. Translating this to a larger format is a great exercise and a great reminder of outdoor painting.
This painting is available for purchase Through Dutch Art Gallery.

Fincher' White Front by Sheri Jones

Fincher's White Front by Sheri Jones
7 x 5 oil on canvas
I met a group of plein air painters today in the Historic Ft. Worth Stockyards. This building is home of Fincher's White Front Western Wear and has been in existence since 1907. The original name was White Front Western Wear. The Fincher family bought it in 1967 and has had the doors opened since.
The location turned into a wealth of inspiration and I would love to return soon. There were beautiful buildings, horses, cows, longhorns, goats and lots of cowboys everywhere. This is where the west begins! YeHaw.
