These small scale paintings are created with the idea that light and a minimalism of form can create spaces of contemplation and quiet. I've long been attached to light held in darkness and use a color field landscape format to explore this idea.  These paintings may seem simple, but are painted with layers of oil paint that create depth of color and vibrations of light. This size works well for a single installation or multiples can be used to heighten or lengthen the impact.  All works in this series are available to purchase online.  If framing is included it will be noted in the painting's description, but most are framed in a clear maple floater frame with black interior.  Sorry, no frame options beyond what is noted are offered.  Shipping charges apply and are indicated in the shopping cart. 

Original paintings cannot be returned or refunded. 

Please send me a note if you'd like to see additional images or would like to commission a painting or paintings (email me).

    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.
