This painting is of one of the beautiful buildings located at Balboa Park in San Diego. The park was built for the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition. I recently learned that the buildings were supposed to be torn down after the exposition. Thanks to some forward thinking San Diegoans, that did not happen. This piece is on linen mounted on board and will need 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.
