Hot Summer Night
8x10 oil on linen

Have you ever spent a summer day dreaming of a way to cool off? We did and spent the evening cruising the lake hoping for a cool breeze.   The bonus was this spectacular sunset. Did I push the colors a bit?  Maybe, but if you look long and hard enough the color is there!

It's in the Shadows
14x11 oil on linen

I'm pleased to say this is my third painting that has been selected to show at Dutch Art Gallery during their fall show "All You Need is Love" .
The show opens Saturday, December 4th. Stayed tuned for reception information.  

I love it when I am being creative, that's the basic fact about me. I love taking photos, just like I love taking long walks through my neighborhood in Granbury, I must remember that these things bring me joy.
I think, how can I make the most ordinary subject look interesting, think, how much more I can bring to a scene.  In this painting the warm morning light made the corner of this house come to life. The shadows are a great contrast with interesting shapes. I fell in love with the light and shadows and knew I had to paint this scene.
"All you need is Love" is about finding a passion and expressing it through the painting process.

Contemporary Impressionistic Portrait Original Oil Painting by Sheri Jones

For the Love of Fishing
20x16 oil on linen canvas

I'm pleased to say this painting has been selected to show at Dutch Art Gallery during their fall show "All You Need is Love" .
The show opens Saturday, December 4th. Stayed tuned for reception information.  

Since the beginning of the year, I set a goal to paint the children in my family.
This is my great niece, Kylie. Her grandfather loves to be outside fishing or hunting. He is passing on the love to his grandchildren. As soon as he posted this photo of her with her prize catch, I knew I wanted to paint it.  It just seemed to fit in with the theme of the show "All You Need is Love." I loved everything about this, from her t-shirt to the fish and lovely lake behind her. Painting it was pure joy.

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.

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.
