Artist
Sherri Aldawood Mesa, Arizona

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.

    Artist Statement

    I paint what I am visually attracted to: light and color. It is very important to me to portray the effect of light as it falls on the subject. My paintings portray a certain time and place--perhaps as a way to document that I was there, that I existed in that place at that time.


    Observing and painting from life is very important to my artistic process. I use these on location experiences combined with photographs when I am painting in the studio.


    The "basics" of drawing, value, composition and edges are extremely important tools that I use in helping me to express my emotional connection to the subject. My paintings could be described as lively, painterly, and colorful.


    As an artist, my job is to edit and expand on the world as I see it, giving back my own unique perspective. I paint with a passion for life that I hope will be translated to the viewer.
