When I see a view I love, such as this one, of course my first thought is, "How will I paint this... to get the feeling I have when I see something so incredible?" I always start with color. The color MUST be captivating, from the start to the final stroke. "Coastal Sky V" is created on cradled birch. The sides are painted a neutral color to enhance the image.
Sheila spends many hours studying clouds from the cockpit of her sailboat on the California coast. She's frequently blessed with beaming sunrises and storms that create beautiful displays of light streaming across the ocean or shimmering off the nearby coastal mountain range. Sheila's award-winning paintings have been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United States and Europe. She has received recognition from the National Arts Appreciation Program, and her work has been exhibited at the prestigious L'Espace Bateau Lavoir in Paris.
