Contemporary Impressionistic Floral Still life Palette Knife Plein Air Original Oil Painting by Sheri Jones


Fall Festival of Flowers
7x14 oil on canvas

I painted this on my patio recently.  When I started it, the plants were all in the shade.  I focused on the shapes and colors.  By the time I was an hour into it, the sun popped out and produced strong shadows and light.  That is the best part of plein air painting. Things change moment by moment creating spontaneous opportunities.

This was a commission painting I created of the owner's view of Lake Granbury. It was a challenge to work so large, but also so fun. I worked from a photo taken from their front deck.
I've included a picture of the proud new owners.

Contemporary Impressionistic Floral Landscape Palette Knife Original Oil Painting by Sheri Jones



Bougainvillea
10x8 oil on linen panel
Sold

I created this during the Hidden Garden tour this past weekend. It sold right off the easel. I love it that happens.  The house I painted at was absolutely beautiful and highlighted with these huge pots of bougainvillea.  They were 40 years old and were glowing in the afternoon sun.  The owners move them inside the garage during the winter.  That's the only way to survive and get so large.

Contemporary Impressionistic Floral Landscape Plein Air Palette Knife Original Oil Painting by Sheri Jones



First Earth Farm Sunflowers
9x12 oil on linen panel

I had the opportunity to join 8 other plein air painters at First Earth Farm in Bluff Dale yesterday.  There were paintings at every turn.  I was naturally drawn to this scene filled with color.  This is a working farm on the Paluxy river. We painted and then shopped for farm fresh and canned foods. It was a delightful day.
