On my wish list…

FOR THREE DAYS

Not many teachers in this world Can give you as much enlightenment In one year

As sitting all alone, for three days, In your closet Would Do.

This means not leaving. Better get a friend to help with A few sandwiches And The chamber Pot.

And no reading in there or writing poems, That would be cheating; Aim high–for a 360 degree Detox.

This sitting alone, though, is Not recommended

If you are normally Sedated

Or have ever been under doctor’s Surveillance because of your Brain.

Dear one, Don’t let Hafiz fool you–

A ruby is buried Here.

      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.
