For this piece, I wanted to convey the feeling of a warm day giving way to the coolness of the evening. The girl looks like she may be longing for her one true love, hence the title, “Fairy Tale Romance.” This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished blue edges. It comes varnished and 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.
