A large scale painting or piece of oversize art is often used as a focal point in a room.  Because of the nature of my work,  contemplative paintings created with atmospheric elements, I often work in sizes above 48" and enjoy how these big spaces allow me to to move around, play with the nuance of color and give me room to shape edges that breathe. My subject and technique and large scale go hand in hand.

 

The largest commissioned piece I've painted was 72x108".  I often work in the 60x72" and 48x60" sizes, as well as square works in the 4, 5, and 6' dimensions.

I'm happy to consider creating COMMISSIONED work. I'll have time in my schedule beginning in 2021. Please contact me for details and pricing.

      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.
