Sunny Reflections, Contemporary Landscape Art by Sheri Jones

Sunny Reflections
24x18 oil on canvas

This is a delight spot we found when out searching to paint blue bonnets. The morning light created warm colors on the trees and a beautiful reflection.  I used a palette knife and lots of colorful paint. Available at Dutch Art Gallery, Dallas, TX.

Late Afternoon Shadows, Contemporary Landscape Art by Sheri Jones

Late Afternoon Shadows
20x24

I was out painting in the Glen Rose and Paluxy area and came across this scene. I took a photo for later reference. I wish I had time to paint everything that inspires me on location, but I don't. Photos in my studio are the next best thing.  I enlarged this from a small study.
This is available for purchase.

El Tesoro Glow, Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

El Tesoro Glow 
8x10 acrylic on canvas

I spent the majority of December painting Christmas cards with acrylic paint. Since I had the paint out I thought I would experiment with them on canvas. It was a fun challenge creating texture using the paint brush instead of a palette knife.
This is available for purchase.  $200.

Happy New Year
