I painted this on location in early May at a river in southern Colorado. The river was very high and the water very forceful because of the snow melting in the mountains. This piece is painted on linen mounted on gatorboard. It is varnished, 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.
