I saw this group of aspen trees while on a hike near Greer, Arizona. I wanted to depict the dramatic lighting as the sun was setting, known as the golden hour. The piece is painted on linen canvas, mounted on gator board, and varnished with Gamvar. It will require a frame for display.

Getting to Know Sherri

Sherri Aldawood didn't intend to always paint flowers, but over time her love of gardens started to permeate her art. She focuses on the light and color of the flowers on the canvas. Sherri prefers alla prima, working with wet layers of paint instead of letting them dry. She keeps the paint as wet as possible by using walnut and clove oil to extend the drying time.
