I saw this red staircase at a garden in Tucson, AZ and I was immediately attracted to the dappled light. However, the surroundings were rather uninteresting so I added the plants and flowers to enhance the stairs and lighting.
This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.
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.
