My storefront studio at 203 Prospect Street is now open by masked appointment.  I'm also happy to hang paintings you'd like to preview on the front window wall and step outside while you view them (or you can view them at your convenience through the window).  I'm doubtful that I'll have my space open for art walks or group exhibits for a very long time.  My instagram is filled with the information I would share with you about the work if we were meeting in person, so please take the time to read information there for more insight.  I'm also sharing a lot of the inspiration for the blue musings exhibit in the tab at top and I'm trying to video the paintings for better viewing online.  Thanks for all your support through this new reality of showing art.

RAINER

RILKE

Whoever you may be: step into the evening.
Step out of the room where everything is known.
Whoever you are,
your house is the last before the far-off.
With your eyes, which are almost too tired
to free themselves from the familiar,
you slowly take one black tree
and set it against the sky: slender, alone.
And you have made a world.
It is big
and like a word, still ripening in silence.
And though your mind would fabricate its meaning,
your eyes tenderly let go of what they see.

    SHARON KINGSTON STUDIO

    203 PROSPECT ST

    Bellingham WA  98225

    please send me note before you stop by

    Sharon Kingston is a Northwest WA oil painter who uses the properties of her medium to create paintings that respond to both the atmosphere of her surroundings and poetry. This method of looking inward and outward and, in the moments of painting, finding her way on the canvas is her approach to creating paintings infused with poetry and the memory of landscape. The atmospheric element of her work is a testament to her desire to create spaces that are undefined, contemplative and allow room to reflect and accept uncertainty. Poetry, by nature open ended, is used both in the conceptualization of the work and as a part of the studio practice. The words of Rainer Rilke have informed Sharon’s work for many years, but she also turns to contemporary poetry when it resonates with her life. She uses layers of transparent color, reveals forms by concealing and unearthing pentimenti and suggests elements of landscape in her process.
