Crape Myrtle Shadows by Artist Sheri Jones

Crape Myrtle Shadows 
12x9 oil on canvas

I painted this in my front yard. This crape myrtle is over 25 years old  and is what greats me everyday. I drove up one morning and was struck by the great shadows and strong highlights the morning sun made. I started painting this on the morning my 4 year great niece stayed over to paint. I set her up with an easel and let her create her own garden painting. It was such fun watching how happy this made her. She is an artist in training.  I returned the next day to finish it.   This is available  for purchase. $250.00
