Texas Sunrise by Sheri Jones

Texas Sunrise 
20x24 oil on canvas

I used a s small study to create Texas Sunrise. The original was inspired from the Granbury area.  I love to take my small studies and use them as a departure for my large landscape paintings. I may move a tree or use a different color scheme to get the results I want.  The study is a great way to work out color or  design theory before approaching a large canvas. This is available for purchase at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas.

Rainy Siena by Sheri Jones

Rainy Siena
12x12 oil on canvas

This was inspired from my trip to Italy in September. It was raining in Siena when we approached the Piazza del Campo. The  brightly colored umbrellas really popped against the gray skies and buildings.  I loved the feel of this city with the ancient buildings and it's history.

This is the piazza where the Palio di Siena takes place. This horse race runs around the Piazza del Campo twice each year. The event is attend by large crowds and is widely televised.
  Siena is also the home of the Siena Cathedral (Duomo). It begun in the 12th century and is a great example of Italian Romanesque-Gothic architecture. Touring this cathedral was one of the highlights of our trip.
