Three Rivers Artist Guild (TRAG) has selected watercolorist Sheridan Shrimp as its August Artist of the Month.

“The main focus of my art is to capture the beauty I see in nature and present it to others,” Sheridan said. “I can’t remember when I didn’t look at things around me and automatically see prospective paintings.

The love of painting has been in my blood since early childhood.”

Sheridan credits her mother for both her artistic genes and the love of nature that inspires her paintings. As an adult her passions led to a career in ornamental horticulture and a hobby greenhouse in her own backyard.

Once retired she felt free to resume her artistic journey, painting loosely-styled landscapes in oil, watercolor, acrylics and pastels.

Working from quick watercolor sketches and high-contrast studies, she develops the main values and shapes of each work before proceeding.

The TRAG gallery is located at 502 Seventh St. Suite 2, Oregon City.

The gallery is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
