I found this walled garden in Kansas City, Missouri. The early evening lighting gave a very strong contrast and a glow in the flowers that I wanted to capture. This piece is on gallery wrapped linen and the painting continues around the sides. 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.
