Fresh View
20x16 oil on canvas

 We took a country drive recently and passed by this bright red house. It has a garden of roses at the front gate. I had a vision of of bright and happy hollyhocks instead. I took out my artist license and it seemed to paint itself.  Here's to warmer days and fresh views.

Lake Granbury in View
11x14 acrylic on canvas

I'm always delighted to get a peek of the lake from a different view.  This is a from a spot just outside of the Acton Nature Center.  For an added challenge I painted this with acrylic on canvas. Changing mediums is a wonderful way to bring a fresh approach to the creative process.

A Hollyhock Hello

I took a break from posting, but not from painting.  It is part of my daily practice to get to the studio and paint.  These glowing hollyhocks were inspired from a trip to Santa Fe in the summer time.

Paluxy in Paradise by Sheri Jones
12x9 oil on linen panel

I was blessed to spend the day with friends on the Paluxy River recently. The day started off cold so we bundled up. By the time we made it to the river we were peeling off the layers.  It was a great day painting with friends away from the hustle and bustle of the season.

Contemporary Impressionistic Garden Palette Knife Oil Painting by Sheri Jones


Promised Rose Garden
20x10 oil on canvas
This painting made my heart sing and reminded me of a song.

Rose Garden
I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine
There's gotta be a rain some time.

From the song Lynn Anderson released in 1970
An oldie, but a goodie.

Sage Bush Glow by Sheri Jones
16x20 oil on canvas

I painted a small study of this scene recently. It helps to work out the color and design, before going large. I just loved the glow of the sage bush as the sun was setting.  The hillside was filled with the sage bush and nice distant views.

I just completed this from a smaller study I did last year. I love the visits I get from the hummingbirds and wanted to include one in this painting. This is filled with eye popping color. I created it using a palette knife for texture and a brush for details. A joy filled canvas.
