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

I enjoyed visiting Spotlight on Art in Atlanta yesterday. They did a fantastic job of showing the work of over 300 artist in the southeast. I enjoyed sharing my work and seeing the art of so many talented artist. Thanks to all the ladies at Trinity school and especially to Carol.
I have been trying to catch up on a few custom orders. I delivered the paintings below dring the past week. I am working on something new for “Spotlight on Art” in Atlanta. I will be sharing that with you soon.
Another Sweet Angel
Ready to Fly
On the Move Growth Chart
I have not been putting a lot of work up in the last few weeks because I was helping Santa prepare special Christmas presents and I did not want to give away any Christmas secrets. I had a wonderful holiday and appreciate all of those who allowed me to share in their celebrations by preparing a gift for their tree. Here are some of the paintings. Be sure to keep scrolling to see all of them.
Running in the Sprinkler
This painting was for a special aunt.
A Special Day at Chimney Rock
Those of you who follow my work know that I love Lake Martin and this is one of my favorite subjects at Lake Martin. A special friend requested this painting for her son’s wedding gift. He’s the one doing the flip.
These pups are members of a family and this painting was a Christmas surprise from a family member.
A grandmother to be wanted something special for her first grandchild’s room. She was so sweet to ask me to help.
A very dear friend asked me to memorialize the blessed event of the wedding of her son and daughter which she wanted to give as a Christmas gift. We worked together on her idea and the paintings above are what we came up with.
There is a lot to tell about the sweet sisters in the painting above, but I may be giving away a secret. My daughter showed me a photo of these two sweet girls and I could not resist painting them. I hope their mom liked the Christmas surprise.
I hope you enjoy these paintings that have kept me busy for the last few months. I am thankful to these friends that asked me to participate in their Christmas and remember their special days.
I have enjoyed the holiday with my family but will be busy in January. I have five commissioned paintings that I need to finish this month. Also I will be delivering some paintings to Trinity Spotlight on Art in Atlanta for their show in February.
Thanks for keeping up with my work.
