july 26 sale painting, to be idle and blessed, 24x48", oil on canvas, unframed

These words from Mary Oliver's poem 'a summer day' and a quiet moment with this cloud while making my way to the airport with my daughter inspired this painting, 'to be idle and blessed'.  A refleciton on sitting still and quiet and paying attention.  It is 24x48" oil on canvas on stretcher bars with the edges painted white.  Unframed.  There is no frame option from me at this time, but if you'd like information on purchasing a maple floater frame directly, please send me a note.  Free to pick up at my studio, $75 to ship FedEx 3 day throughout the United States.  I will not accept returns on original art.

      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.
