veiled in gold, 18x18" oil on canvas, framed in maple floater frame

 this is an 18x18" original oil painting by Sharon Kingston framed in a clear maple floater frame with a black interior.  3/4" profile from wall.  Signed on reverse.


    The color, Italian Lemon Ochre from Williamsburg paints, has been inspiring many works lately.  It's sunny warmth and transparency allow me to layer it and 'trap' light, like those moments at dawn when there is still moisture in the air lingering from nighttime that is slowly being warmed by the sun.

    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.
