Lily by Artist of Texas, Sheri Jones

Lily 
6x8 oil on canvas
Sold
This is a small study I created for a larger painting I want to paint.  It is a good practice to work out the design and color.  I often use small studies to create larger pieces.  This was created with a palette knife and loads of paint. Sold at Archie's Gardenland in Ft. Worth.

River Grasses by Artist of Texas, Sheri Jones

Fun Spring Color by Artist of Texas Sheri Jones

Fun Spring Color 
16x20 oil on ray mar canvas panel

I created this from a small painting I did in the field. The drought was not easy on the blue bonnets that year.  We found one place where they were actually blooming. The wild grass and brush had hints of fall colors.  I loved the color combo and ramped it up a bit with this one. Sold

Log Cabin by Artist of Texas, Sheri Jones

Log Cabin
9 x 12 oil on canvas

I painted this at the cabin we stayed in near Bryce Canyon in Utah. What a wonderful retreat! This 100 year old cabin is one of the original structures on this property. The cabin we stayed in looked as rough at one time, but was restored. The owner hopes to restore this one some day.  I was fascinated with the history of this old structure. 
While I was painting here I was surrounded by cows. I predict there will be cow paintings in my future!
I loved there curiosity and musical moos.  This is available for purchase. $250.00
