Still Waters Canoes
I am packing up for Art on the Lake which will be held next weekend at Children’s Harbor at Lake Martin. The exhibit will be open on Saturday from 10 -5 and on Sunday from 10 – 2. If you are in the Lake Martin area for Memorial Day, come by and see me as well as the work of some of the best artist in the area.
Scroll down to see a few more Lake Martin related paintings that I will be showing next weekend.

I will be showing some Lake Martin related art on Memorial Day weekend at Art on the Lake. The show is located at Childrens Harbor on Saturday and Sunday, May 25th (10 – 4) and May 26th (10 -2). We always take our lake visitors by Goat Island to see the goats. That was the inspiration for the painting below which I will be bringing to the show.

2013 Mountain Brook Spring Art Festival
I had a wonderful time at the Mountain Brook Spring Art Festival yesterday. I enjoyed seeing some old friends and making some new ones. Thanks to all of you who stopped by and shared my paintings. I hope that they made you smile.
Averitt and Zachary enjoyed it too!
I am really looking forward to the Mountain Brook Spring Art Festival on Saturday, April 20, at Crestline Elementary School. I have about 25 paintings to show. I am putting a few of them below.

This Little Light of Mine
I am still getting ready for the Mountain Brook Spring Art Festival next week. Here is another new painting that I will be showing.
This painting seems appropriate for the Mountain Brook Spring Art Festival at Crestline Sports Field, 25 Vine Street, in Crestline Village on April 20 from 9 -4. If you have time on that Saturday, please come and take a look at work from some of Birmingham’s best artist. I will be there and would love for you to visit.
I have been busy getting ready for the Mountain Brook Art Association Spring Show. Later today, I hope to post a few of the things that I have been working on, but please mark your calendar for this opportunity to see artwork from some terriffic artists in the Birmingham area.
A Wonderful Opportunity to see the work of fantastic artists from the Birmingham area.
Bunnies in the Tulip Patch
I have been working on this 24 x 36 acrylic over the last few weeks. It is something a little different that I have enjoyed painting and it gives me the feeling of Spring even though the weather outside is not cooperating. This painting will soon be delivereed for a nursery in Birmingham.
My work in February was slowed by the heartbreaking death of my 24 year old niece in an auto accident. For almost a week, I thought that I needed to escape to my art, but even though I got back to it this week, I am still heartbroken. I have been working on Belle for a nursery in Auburn.
I am putting the finishing touches on this one and hope to deliver this week.
Two weeks ago today, I delivered the painting below to a dear friend whose grandson is fighting Leukemia at St. Jude. I hope it will brighten and inspire him.
This week I delivered the painting below for a nursery in Birmingham. I used mixed media to match the nursery fabrics and include a subtle hint for a future football allegiance.
I have really enjoyed painting in February. I delivered the painting below to St. Vincent’s hospital on Monday night to help welcome a new neighbor and the son of dear friends.
Tomorrow, I will be delivering several paintings to their new homes and I enjoyed working on all of them.
I really liked this clever idea. A new mother was decorating her nursery and came up with a unique idea to incorporate songs that her grandmother sang to her into her nursery theme. What a dear grandmother she must have been.
I will also be delivering another cute nursery painting where the mother helped me come up with some clever ideas.
Finally, I will be delivering another painting that is very special to me. I have painted this beagle once before for a child’s nursery and now the owner was kind enough to ask me to do another for nursery #2. I hope she will like it.
I will have to do a better job of updating more regularly but you can tell that I have been busy. I will really appreciate it if you will “Like” Sherry Averitt Art on Facebook if you haven’t already. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Sherry-Averitt-Art/453164824705628?fref=ts
