Hottest Sky, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Hottest Sky
14x18 oil on canvas

This hot sky was witnessed on the road between Granbury and Ft. Worth. It is part of my "drive to work" series.  I'm happy to say this series will continue, but my drive to work will not.  I'm officially retired and looking forward to new opportunities. I will be able to paint to my hearts desire.

Water Lily Garden, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Water Lily Garden
30x24 oil on Canvas

A visit to Clark Gardens in Weatherford, Texas inspired this painting. I painted on location and still have not finished with all the painting ideas from that trip.  It was a hot summer morning and the perfect place to set up my easel. I created a couple while there and use those as color studies. This was painted in the studio using brushes, palette knifes and layers and layers of colorful paint.

Morning Graze, Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones


Morning Graze
11x14 Oil on Canvas

I created this in the studio from a fuzzy  photo I took while flying down the highway. For safety reasons I should menotion I was a passenger and not driving. The dramatic sky and hint of the cows on the hillside were enough to spark my creative desire.

From Amy's Garden, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones


From Amy's Garden
12x9 oil on wood panel

I snagged more of my neighbor, Amy's sunflowers. I set up this still life in the sun. The heat from the sun will melt the flowers, so I worked fast.  Pre-mix paints and a palette knife help with the process.
