Feelin’ a Transition coming on…

Change is in the air.  I’ve been experimenting in the background for a few months now, and had a breakthrough in the studio over the holiday weekend.  Most certainly due to TIME–no exhibits for a while so studio time is plentiful, relatively speaking–and the viewing of Elles at SAM.  All empowering and inspiring.  Concept in mind, I’ll be working on a few smaller studies (show below, Secret Beach) before embarking on some really large scale pieces with the idea of showing them all as a body of work sometime in the Spring.  It is really quite wonderful to feel re-energized.  It is the painting season.  The skies are grey, the light is perfect in my studio, the radiator works and there are funds from recent sales to pay for surface, paint and brushes.  Thankful for everything!

    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.
