Flat Rock Creek Sunrise

Flat Rock Creek Sunrise by Sheri Jones
30x24 oil on canvas

I created this from a couple of field studies. They were of the same location, but at different times of the day. I love the warm color the rising sun creates.  This was on a beautiful fall morning. This was created with a palette knife and lots of colorful paint.  This painting is available for sale through CFAI Sheri@sheriart.net

Beautiful Sunrise by Sheri Jones

Beautiful Sunrise by Sheri Jones
36x24 oil on canvas

I created this in the studio from one of my small field studies. On the morning I created the field study the sun poked through stormy clouds. It was a beautiful sunrise for a minute and I tried my best to capture it. As soon as we left the skys opened up and poured. I used the palette knife to paint this.

Springtime Stroll by Sheri Jones

Springtime Stroll by Sheri Jones
12 x 9 oil on canvas
This painting was inspired by a small study I created in the Ft. Worth Botanical Garden. I took a photo of the scene for use in the studio later. The two young ladys were strolling through about that time. 

 The weather here has been nice and warm with temperatures in the 80's. That is going to make the flowers pop.
This painting is available for purchase. $125.00

Show Flowers by Sheri Jones

Show Flowers by Sheri Jones
16 x 8 oil on Raymar canvas panel
My sister Pam and her husband Dan were in Hawai during the opening reception at my solo show in Granbury. They were unable to attend, but sent these beautiful flowers straight from the island.  It was such a treat to receive this special delivery.  They made a beautiful center piece for the show. I knew I had to paint them.  This was painted with a palette knife.

Grain Elevator by Sheri Jones

Grain Elevator by Sheri Jones
12 x 9 oil on Raymar canvas panel
This was another study completed in the Jill Carver workshop this week. We painted behind the Boyce Feed and Grain Corporation in Waxahachie, Texas. This grain yard was full of activity and a great place for the value study Jill was teaching.  I can't wait to get out and practice all she taught us. She packed a lot of information in the three day class.

Gray Day Study by Sheri Jones

Gray Day Study by Sheri Jones
9 x 12 oil on Raymar canvas panel
I painted this at a Jill Carver plein air workshop in Waxahachie, Texas. She is a skilled and talented teacher. She packs a lot of information in her workshops. If you ever get a chance to take from her I would jump at it.  The main lesson on this day was recognizing and applying the right value.  The gray grain towers against the gray day was perfect for this.
