These paintings are inspired by the atmosphere and sentiment of the pacific northwest skies.  Inspired by poetry which echoes the mood of these moments in nature and created by layered oil on canvas---a technique I've been trying to master for almost 15 years.  Some of these recent paintings are available as noted and can be viewed in person at my studio.  

Most of the paintings are priced unframed.

    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.
