I am honored that my painting, "Coastal Light", is included in Coastal Living Magazine's March Issue, "True Colors".

Sheila Finch 3/19/2015 | 9:37 AM

Thank you so much for your kind comment. I love using color as the main component in creating my uplifting, positive paintings!

S Stewart 3/15/2015 | 7:37 AM

Hi I love the colour you bring to your paintings. they are just amazing .

Sheila Finch 9/7/2014 | 7:42 PM

Yesterday I had the honor to be the Judge for "Explorations in Colored Pencil III", at the Peninsula Gallery in San Mateo California. This was a competition within the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California chapter of the Colored Pencil Society of America. These paintings, all created in colored pencil, were incredible! I had no idea such beautiful work could be created in this medium!

Sheila Finch 9/2/2014 | 2:56 PM

So nice of you to comment! I do work to create positive feelings through my paintings... hope, faith, an uplifting of the spirit... Glad you are enjoying them!

this painting gives me hope just by looking at it through the internet you must be a beautiful person to do this beauty

Sheila Finch 6/26/2014 | 12:32 PM

Thank you so much for your kind remarks about my paintings! Such nice comments from collectors (and FUTURE collectors!) like you fill me with gratitude... I would be honored to one day have my paintings hanging in your home.

R Baker 6/26/2014 | 12:15 PM

Gorgeous work! I look forward to purchasing one of your beautiful paintings (but have a leaky flat roof to fix first). I'm so glad I found your work - you're an incredible artist with tremendous talent. I love your use of color and the way your paintings make me feel. Bye for now!

Sheila Finch 2/10/2014 | 9:53 AM

I've just posted my first video on YouTube! The four minute video shows me painting a new piece over a period of about three days. Here's the link: http://youtu.be/5FV7OyJcJEc Enjoy! Sheila

Sheila Finch 4/2/2013 | 11:35 AM

I am thrilled to have Heavenly Light-5 hanging in your beautiful home! This image is an early morning scene close to our marina. The sky was filled with upswept clouds reflecting in the pool of water collected in the salt flats below. Some of my most inspiring scenes are found here!

D Newcomb 4/1/2013 | 10:30 PM

Sheila, We are so thrilled to finally have one of your works. We have the perfect location for Heavenly Light 5. It is a breathtaking painting. The colors are so vivid that I can visualize being there.

Sheila Finch 3/15/2013 | 7:24 AM

I am so pleased that you love the painting, "Tidal Pools". This painting was inspired by the tidal pools of the Fitzgerald Marine Park off the coast north of Half Moon Bay. It's a magical, beautiful area filled with color that's only accessible when the tide is low. It's just north of the famous Mavericks surf competition on the coast south of San Francisco.

Sheila, I am so pleased with your beautiful work. The painting was pictured very accurately on the website.

Sheila Finch 3/6/2013 | 6:53 PM

I am thrilled to announce that one of my paintings, "South Bay", has been chosen by Crate and Barrel for a limited edition print! In early April they will fly me out to the East Coast to sign the edition!

Sheila Finch 12/23/2012 | 10:07 AM

The storms we get here in Northern California from December through April create the most dynamic, inspiring skyscapes. My largest painting, "April Sky-Coastal Bluffs Park" and "Coastal Storm" were both inspired by images of the types of storms we're experiencing now throughout the month of December.

Sheila! Your work is fantastic! We wrote about it on the blog. You can read it here: http://blog.ugallery.com/post/34783386594/new-artist-spotlight-derek-alvarez-sheila-finch

Sheila Finch 10/30/2012 | 2:49 PM

I love painting water, wetlands and skies, especially now that I live on the water... literally, ON the water in my 40 foot sailboat! I draw much of my inspiration from the beautiful California sunrises and sunsets I see each day, both at the dock and when we're anchored out in exotic locations around the San Francisco Bay and northern coast of California.
