In this piece I wanted to convey the feeling of quiet contemplation that I saw in my model, Mina. This piece is on gallery wrapped linen canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished and 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.
