Mama Said No
Gone, But Not Forgotten
 
Always cheerful, Sherry’s attitude toward her art is this:
I enjoy painting all subjects and in all mediums. When someone asks why I paint the particular subjects I choose, I reply, ‘Why not?’ I am constantly asked which medium is my favorite. My answer is always the same, ‘The medium I am currently working in. If I had to choose only one subject, one medium, it would have to be portraits in oil. Each one is the human subject, but each one has a different personality, different ‘feel.’ I start all my paintings with an abstract design and develop to the impressionistic stage and eventually to realism. I work on all elements of the composition simultaneously and the painting could be called finished at any stage. It is my goal to make all paintings as strong in design and art theory as possible and I work to make every portrait/painting a good painting as well as a
good likeness of the subject matter. I try to make each painting speak to the viewer and make the strongest statement possible with the chosen subject and medium. The ultimate competition, for me, is always the next painting. I compete with myself. Setting at least three new goals with each successive painting, it must be better in design, value, and temperature (color) above all else. Those reasons change once again if the painting is a commissioned one. The client is my partner and I must be flexible and use the input of information given to me by that person. Following the completion and delivery of a portrait, it is both relaxing and a process of renewal for me to loosen up and do large, abstract pieces. Murals and theater sets have also been the prescription I have used.
