Sheri Gee goes to seed

Example artist Sheri Gee spent February 2018 working away at a 30 in 30 painting challenge – to paint 30 seed packets in 30 days.

Joining hundreds of other artists taking part in Leslie Saeta’s biannual 30 in 30 challenge, each day Sheri chose another packet from her collection and treated it as a mini still life.

Painting in oils on twice-primed water colour paper, each painting is A4, featuring both vegetables, salad and flower varieties.

Sheri managed the challenge in a little over 30 days, 33 to be exact. Persistence is the key!
