Pop Up Nursery by Sheri Jones

Pop Up Nursery by Sheri Jones
12x9 oil on canvas
This was inspired from a photo I took in Granbury during the Garden convention.  This little pop up nursery was brought in by Angie's Gardens and offered a large variety of plants. I enjoyed shopping and buying from her. It was a hot weekend and this umbrella offered much needed shade. This is available for purchase.

I discovered this scene in Glen Rose, Texas.  I went to participate in the Paint the Glen paint out last month. I passed this nursery/scooter rental on my way home after the event.  I didn't stop to paint there, but I did make a quick U-turn to take some photos. I found many inspirational painting opportunities in this small town. I plan to return there to paint in the near future.  This is availalbe for purchase $150.00

Hydrangea's by Sheri Jones
10x8 oil on canvas
I created this in the Botanical Gardens in Ft. Worth. I just love zipping over at lunch and painting in the park. It was a beautiful spring day with a lot of folks out.  The Hydrangea's were in full bloom and calling my name. I had been over the day before searching for some inspiration. I took a lot of photos and will probably create this on a larger scale.  I painted this with a palette knife and lots of colorful paint.  This painting is available for purchase. $125.00

Dirk's GMC by Sheri Jones

Dirk's GMC by Sheri Jones
9 x 12 Raymar canvas panel

This was the 5th painting I created during the Paint Historic Waxahachie.  On my last day I drove through the streets of Waxahacie looking for inspiration. I searched for a while and just wasn't finding anything that  I wanted to paint.  That is until I saw this truck. It had a nice patina and the color was a good contrast to the house behind it. I love these old trucks. They are filled with such character and  come from another time. It was a fun challenge.  This painting Sold

Yellow Shack by Sheri Jones

Yellow Shack by Sheri Jones
9 x 12 oil on Raymar canvas panet
I painted this during the Paint Historic Waxahachie paint out this week.  I started it on Monday and didn't quite finish it.  I went back today around the same time and the shadows were the same.  It was easy to get back into in and finish it up. It was getting close to 100 degrees outside, so I worked quickly. Plus all paintings had to be turned in by 2:00 pm.  They are now on display at Chautauqua Auditorium in  Getzendaner park in Waxahachie.  They will be on display there until Sunday, June 6, 10 a.m - 4 p.m. This painting is for sale $150.00

Waxahachie Waterlilies by Sheri Jones

Waxahachie Waterlilies by Sheri Jones
14x7 oil on canvas
I painted this during the Paint Historic Waxahachie paint out this week.  After participating in this event several times I am discovering some of the hidden  spots. A private garden off Main street is one of them. It is shaded and a nice place to spend the afternoon. Water gardens, pathways, out buildings and a wide variety of garden flowers are a welcome site on a hot and sunny day.  

This painting will be on displayed at the Ellis County Art Association and Museum, 501 W. Main, Waxahachie, Texas. All the artwork created during the week will be moved over to Chatauqua Auditorium, Friday, June 3rd and will be on display there until Sunday, June 6, 10 - 4.

This painting is now on display at Rising Stars art Gallery, Mineral Wells, Texas
