social special works

occasionally I have an older work or a study that I sell at a special price and promote on social media platforms.  You can purchase those specially priced works here using paypal -- if you are not a paypal user, you can still securely checkout as a guest using a credit card.  Please click on image for details and shopping cart.

(shipping charges applied at checkout and will typically be $15 for original paintings $75 and under, and $20 for paintings under $200.  US locations only)  This cost includes me preparing the painting for shipping, securing a shipping tube and trekking to USPS or FedEx.  I will note on the product page when shipping charges are more than $20.  For locals, please choose the option to pickup at my studio if you'd like to save these charges.

    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.
