Studio Tour

I do believe my studio received as many accolades as my work these past weekends during studio tour.  And I would have to agree.  It is the most fantastic place to paint with the most wonderful light.   My paintings and I thrive in this environment.

Today I decided to share this ultimate in artist’s studios with another artist.  I can only make it to the studio on the weekends–and maybe sneak in a night during the week–and I can’t see allowing this space to sit dormant for all those hours that I’m working elsewhere.  Of course my new studio mate and I will work out a schedule–I like to work alone and we’ll arrange hours to accommodate that.  Reducing both my expenses and my exhibit schedule will give me a sabbatical of sorts–time to reflect on what I’m creating and why without the pressure of sales.    I have another full day in the studio tomorrow to chat it up with visitors before embarking on my new shared environment.  So many good things have been happening lately.  I am full of gratitude.

For all of you that like peaking into creative spaces, this book by Joe Fig has brought me great pleasure and insight into other artists studios .

      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.
