Sharon’s love of the outdoors has led her to oil paint landscapes and the creatures therein. Extensive use of the technique of plein air painting has led to a naturalistic representation of the western landscape. Located in Olathe, Colorado, this artist is surrounded by one of the places that inspires her beautiful paintings.
Sharon paints “plein air” landscapes, portraits and still life as often as possible. Her plein air painting is begun on-site, outdoors and taken back to the studio to touch up, or create a larger scale painting, capturing the light of nature outdoors in real time. The luminosity of the oil painting captures the light and atmosphere she is seeking to instill in her paintings. “In whatever one does, there must be a relationship between the eyes and the heart.” Henri Cartier-Blesson
