PLEASE NOTE

Blue Musings has morphed into an ongoing online exhibit as a result of covid-19.  I will post an installation when its complete and the paintings will be offered for sale.  All paintings which are available for purchase will be linked to a shopping cart category within this website.  Yes, you'll be able to view and purchase online. All sales will fund the continued exploration of the color blue which I set out to do at the beginning of 2020 before the world went wacky and it became dangerous to go to a gallery.

BLUE MUSINGS

A body of work inspired by writings, including poetry, on the color blue and artists/artworks which celebrate blue's chromatic values.

Each slideshow below is devoted to one exploration, for instance '16 shades of blue from thunderstorm to respite' holds within its making the words of Tori Amos, Rainer Richter, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Paul Cezanne, Siri Hustvedt and Sherwin-Williams paint colors.  One slide speaks to the sources (writings or poetry or artworks) and another slide shows the final paintings.  Hint, use the arrow.

      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.
