Pinterest Poetry

Social media platforms make many marketing tools available to artists–for free.  I know that Pinterest could be such a tool for me, however, I’m so struck by the beauty of objects and environments and FOOD, that I forget why I’m spending time there.

I have carefully curated the people I follow so that my Pinterest feed is only filled with wonderfully styled interiors, clothing and art.  I look at my feed from this gestalt vision, seeing the trends and connections between these random pinnings.  Today I found poetry in the pins adjacent to my newest pin.  Whether this was random, or by some behind the scenes algorithm, not sure.  But I’ve seen color trends that cluster in the past and have taken note of that also.

Here is my found Pinterest Poem for today.

And, here is a color trend board I noted when pinning another painting.

    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.
