I loved painting this and adding my own color scheme to the landscape.  My challenge is to take a simple landscape photo and enhance it. Adding the glowing colors of a beautiful sunset made this landscape pop.

This dramatic sky light was calling me to paint it.  I loved the strong contrasting colors. I painted this on a cradled wooden panel.  It was fun working on a different service.  The palette knife is very forgiving on this hard service.

The sky was a wonderful mix of cool and warm colors.  I started with a thin layer of thalo red rose and built up the texture and color from there.  The view is along a walking path in Pecan Valley Park, Benbrook, Texas.  The sunrise views from here are a constant inspiration for me.

Rock Garden
12x9 oil on canvas


I created this at the botanical gardens in  Ft. Worth. The color of the blooming flowers around the stream were an eye catcher. It was a great break and chance to get outside when the weather was cool enough.  I am working inside lately with the hot and humid Texas temperatures.  
This is available for purchase.

Caladiums, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Caladiums
12x12 oil on panel
Sold

I created this during the Hidden Gardens Tour for the Ft. Worth Historic Society.
I always enjoy painting during the garden tours.  It started off with rain in the morning, but cleared up by noon when the tours began.  I set up quickly and painting in this inspiring garden. The home owner had "still lifes" everywhere.  I was easy to find something to paint.  It was an enjoyable day!
