Sumac Bushes by Sheri Jones

Sumac Bushes by Sheri Jones
9x12 oil on canvas
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 have passed this spot daily and thought I could find something here to paint.  The sumac bushes appeared to be glowing in the morning sun.   It was a good spot and a great morning.
I painted this with a #28 Galleria (1 1/4" wide).  It was a challenge on such a small canvas.
  This is available for purchase. $125.00

Foggy Fall Morning by Sheri Jones

Foggy Fall Morning by Sheri Jones
9x12 oil on canvas
This was my second attempt at a painting in the fog. It was too thick at my first stop and I ended up with a wiper. I drove up the hill and found this spot. The sun was trying to burn the clouds away, but the fog stayed around a long time.  I challenged myself by using a larger brush on this one. I used a #28 Galleria, that is 1 1/4 of an inch wide. This is available for purchase. $125.00

Edward's Road by Sheri Jones
12x16 oil on canvas
I created this during a workshop with Olivette Hubler last weekend.  We were painting in an area on Edward's road that is one big flat rock.  I am always inspired when we paint here and usually do have a great time while there. This day was no exception. Everyone in the class seemed to have a good time and were equally inspired.   This is available for purchase through CFAI.http://www.cfai.co/sherijones

Paluxy Tree Reflections by Sheri Jones

Paluxy Tree Reflections
12x16 oil on canvas
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.
