I love the simplicity of this piece. There is a serenity to this despite the storm that’s about to break… very nice. The dark tree mass makes all the other colors stand out nicely.

I love Sherri’s roses. Absolutely beautiful. Her still life work is amazing, and you just might be in luck! If you’re in the Nashville, TN area this weekend… there are just a few spots remaining in her weekend workshop “TWO DAY STILL LIFE WORKSHOP”! I would act quickly if you’re interested!

Loosen up and learn to paint expressively with a limited palette, big brushes and a palette knife! Sherrie will give a brief orientation & demo of the principles of painting in the “Alla Prima” method from life while explaining her planning process of composition, values, edges and color harmony.Later students will paint their first response to simplified shapes with confident brush strokes.

Read a blip about Sherri from her website:

Sherrie Russ Levine was born in Georgetown, South Carolina and attended Ringling School of Art & Design in Sarasota, Florida where she received her degree in graphic design and illustration. After graduating she worked in advertising agencies and corporate art departments in Atlanta, Georgia for 10 years before making Nashville, Tennessee her home. Since 1995 she has focused her energy on paintings in oil and has shown in galleries and juried shows throughout the United States.

 Levine is an artist noted for her loose impressionist paintings filled with evocative light and color. Her works capture the mood or atmosphere of any subject with expressive brushwork and just enough details to invite you to take a closer look. She often travels to find new inspiration and paints en plein air when on location, or always from life in the studio.  

 Levine’s paintings are gaining national recognition in private collections and painting competitions. Her painting “Capitalizing on Sunshine” has become a part of the Tennessee State Museum’s Permanent Collection. She has continued her studies of painting under the tutelage of renowned artists Barbara Flowers, CW Mundy, Kim English, Lori Putnam and Scott Christensen whom are among the most influential in her work.
