This is a difficult time financially for a lot of people.  For many years my art practice has funded  studio rent, mortgage and a university student's apartment in addition to health care.  Small business owners do not have access to unemployment benefits.  All we can do is adjust our business practices.  So my decision is that during this time when my private studio allows me the ability to continue to create, I'll be selling all new paintings for -30%.  Anything created from this day forward until I can open up my studio to the public again. 

I will also be offering a weekly selection of framed prints.  These will rotate out and only be available for purchase the week they are offered.  There will be one abstract, one atmosphere and one floral.  I would prefer all prints shipped to you.  Shipping charges are waived on the first print.

*commissioned work and already completed paintings do not qualify for this new work discount.

    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.
