I love historic homes and gardens, so when I saw this subject on a beautiful spring morning, I had to paint it.  I did a small plein air sketch on site, and then used that plus photos to complete this more finished studio painting.  This painting is on gallery wrapped linen canvas with finished dark green edges. It comes ready to hang.

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.
