Cliff Wall at Rough Creek by Sheri Jones

Cliff Wall at Rough Creek by Sheri Jones
14x11 oil on canvas
This was inspired from a trip out to Rough Creek Lodge in Glen Rose. It is a hunting resort on 11,000 acres and always a great place of inspiration.  We went on the opening weekend for hunting and there were gun shots all around. We were in a safe zone, but it is still intimidating with the sound of gunfire all around.  This small creek is the run off from their fishing lake. I painted this with a palette knife and lots of colorful paint and is available for purchase.

The forecast for Wednesday was temperatures in the seventies with calm winds. When I heard that I scheduled a day off work. I was not disappointed.

I created this during a plein air workshop I took with Olivette Hubler. I was working behind the Benard Museum on the Paluxy River. A woman had come down to purchase a window in memory of her late husband at the museum.  You can purchase the windows and have them restored. She watched me paint for a while and decided she wanted to purchase my painting. I was about halfway through it and agreed to finish it and ship it out when it dried.  I love it when that happens.

Fogged Out by Sheri Jones

Fogged Out by Sheri Jones
9x12 oil on canvas
I painted this at Hunter Park on Lake Granbury Saturday morning. It was a foggy morning and the drive over was a challenge. The fog was still thick when I pulled up. I loved the mystery and drama of the thick atmosphere. I walked out on the pier to get a good view of the lake and saw this boat. I set up quickly and went to work. I had layed out my paint and premixed my grays before I left the house that morning.  I was able to paint the fog as quickly as it faded.  It was a relaxing way to spend my morning.
