Image-ing

I took a car and ferry trip with four teenagers today.  We checked out the site of a future exhibit of my paintings, collected fantastic rocks on the beach and ate burgers together–and listened to all our favorite songs on the way home.  Now they’re listing to a Lady Gaga Holiday pandora station while making duct tape Christmas ornaments.  It has really been a fabulous way to begin the holiday break.

So while they’re doing their thing, I used my digital tools to imagine my paintings in this most fabulous setting.  Come March when you sit on one side of the table you’ll see the view on top and from the other chair the view below.  I’m inspired to create a couple of new pieces and can’t wait to get in the studio tomorrow.   So exciting…

      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.
