THE FOG SUITES

New for 2021.  Available for purchase now.

Inspired by Mark Doty's poem 'fog suite' and the idea of imbuing each painting with a color story crafted from Benjamin Moore's 2021 palette, the fog suite paintings explore the beautiful and nuanced light of the visible uncertainty that is fog. And how this weather phenomenon seems ever so relevant and true to the atmosphere of our current existence.

There are five suites.  Paintings will be sold individually.  Please subscribe to my site if you'd like to receive early notification of their completion.

paintings will be posted by suite from late January - early February

and be available for purchase when posted.

      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.
