While walking in the White Mountains near Greer, Arizona, I rounded a bend and came upon this scene.  I did a small plain air sketch from life and then using that sketch and photos, I did this larger painting.  The piece is painted on linen canvas, mounted on Gatorboard 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.
