Echineaca Flowers by Sheri Jones


Echineaca Flowers 
20x16 oil on Raymar canvas panel

These flowers are also called purple coneflowers and some of the species are used in herbal medicine and some are simply in gardens for their showy flowers.  They are tall and hardy summer flowers that can thrive in the Texas sun. I love these bright  pink daisies.

Cattail Display by Sheri Jones

Cattail Display
14x11 oil on Raymar canvas panel

I painted this in the studio from photo I took at Rough Creek Lodge in Glen Rose. We were out scouting a place to paint and drove out to this resort. It's a hunting lodge and it was opening day. There were gunshots going off everywhere.  We were in a safe zone, but decided  keep driving.  I  liked the contrasting colors of the cattails and the lake. 
I painted it with a palette knife and lots of colorful paint.  This is available for purchase thru Dutch Art Gallery, Dallas, TX
