Pink and Blush Colored Paintings

I’ve been a bit obsessed with the color pink–which is not a good thing when it comes to the likelihood of a painting having universal appeal–much less commercial appeal.  It is common knowledge among artists that pink paintings don’t sell. Just look in any artists’ closet.

And, I don’t care.  I use pink because it signifies softness and the feminine.  Because I’m trying to express mood without “mood”.  Because there is a lightness about pink which is uplifting.  Because pink–the lighter blush shade of pink–is a quiet, calming color.  Because pink is fleshy and emotional and human. 

I feel like I’m on a mission lately. To show how pink works in your home spaces.  And how my pink paintings say a lot with very little.

      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.
