    Artist Statement

    I like to paint what I think is there, not just what I see. I sometimes use a photo as a source but find, after a short time, I’ve stopped referring to it; At this point, I‘ve begun to put my impressions and feelings onto the canvas rather than details. As a child I loved to “finger paint” and I’m sure that child is still there in the loose expressive style seen in my work.

    Favorite subjects are Figurative Work or Cityscapes. Sometimes, my cityscapes will drill down to city scenes, incorporating figures as well. I try to capture the “hustle and bustle’’ of urban life and moods of people in gestures.

    Working primarily with acrylic and oil pigments, there is also frequent use of collage materials, mediums and marking pencils/crayons to develop texture and interest areas. I paint on either Gallery Wrap Canvas or on paper that has been bonded to a wood cradle. In both cases the edges are finished and all of my paintings are coated with archival varnish, ready to hang without a frame.

    It is my hope that viewers will share my vision and can find their own personal connection with the piece.

    Sharon, I just received "Skyline VIII" and it is all I hoped it would be - bold, textured and perfect coloring. I will continue to follow your excellent work. Cheers!

    I actually purchased Flappers II, not Marilyn as pictured below. Thank you. Love it but need to know how to best preserve it.

    Dear Sharon: I purchased Flappers ll from you and absolutely love it! I brought it in for framing with glass to cover it, but now I am worried that the glass will damage the artwork. The picture is behind a custom mat but worried the painting will stick to the glass or will not have enough "breathing room." Please advise on how I should best protect this awesome piece of art.

    Thanks Shawn, appreciate the compliments!

    Sharon, I just wanted to chime in and compliment you on your really cool paintings. I'm a beginner myself and really like your style and work! Take Care, Shawn from Minnesota

    Thank you for the kind comments. I don't currently have any finished nudes available (other that what is already on the Ugallery site). I do have one in process 24" x 24" and a primed canvas 30" x 30" which can become a work done in similar style and pose. Would love to contribute to you bedroom decor. Please let me know how I can help.

    I absolutely love Viewpoint. It would be perfect for our newly decorated bedroom. Do you have anything similar but twice the size? It's beautiful!

    This week launches the first piece in my new "Summer Garden" series; consisting of flower compositions in oil on 36" x 18" stretched canvas. "Poppy Fields" will soon be followed by "Blue Poppies" and after that.....?
