unframed on 1 1/2" high quality stretcher bars $4000
framing: slate gray, white or silver floater frame: additional $400
delivery to Seattle: additional $300 (requires van rental)

25% deposit (non refundable) required to purchase materials and begin ($1000)
balance plus tax due on approval ($3348)
4-6 weeks for painting and varnishing
process: I'd love to visit the property on a day when there is some interesting clouds/atmosphere.  However, I do love the photos you sent me, especially the more atmospheric one I've commented on below.  It's good to have a single source photo we all agree on and the palette.  I sense a blue/grey and probably yellow? underpainting for warmth.  As far as the painting process goes, when I think the painting is close to finished, I'll send you video and images and get your feedback.  I will attempt to incorporate the feedback and finish the painting.  At the time painting is complete it's best to view it in person for the final review/approval.  If you don't like the painting, I'll not require payment but will keep the deposit and the painting.  If approved, I'll require the balance due and varnish the painting.  After varnishing, the painting will need one week for drying.  If framing is added, we can look at framing options during the painting process and order the frame so that it is built and ready when the painting is complete.

      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.
