New Oil painting and New Sale painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Across Policeman's Creek", oil on panel, 16 x 20"
$1,195.00 framed, free shipping and handling

I took the photo, from which this painting was made, just as the sun was setting in Canmore, AB. I loved the palette of orange, violet and green and thought it would make a wonderful painting. I have struggled to get a good photo of it, but with the light so low and fleeting at this time of year, it was very difficult. Can you trust me that the actual painting is beautiful?

I know I haven't posted in a while, but here is another Clearance sale painting:

"Remembering Home iii", watercolour on Yupo
beautifully framed in a mahogany wood frame, double archival mats and glass
28 x 34" framed, SOLD

International Women Celebrate book is ready

I have been frantically busy getting ready for my solo show. I will have 75 paintings, all done last year, along with photos of the locations I painted and some text describing what attracted me to the site and how I changed what is visible to make my painting. I wrote a book to go with the exhibition, and I am proud to say that it is at the publishers.

I just got an email that the book produced for the International Women Celebrate show is ready. You can see a preview of it here. (at the bottom right of the web page, there is a graphic, which is the book. If you tap your mouse on the lower right edge, it will turn the pages. You can right click on it to zoom in. The images are very low resolution, but you will get an idea of the response of the over 100 women who participated.
It is Family Day weekend here in Alberta, so I want to wish you and yours a wonderful day.

New Oil and Clearance Sale painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Men Hens", oil on board, 6x6"

I did this from a photo I took in Acapulco a dozen years ago. I just love the body language on these guys, hence my title. (snigger, snigger) My painting challenge is to learn to paint well from photographs! Unusual I know, but I am such a 'life or nothing' person. It took me WAY too long (aka 2 days) to finish it. I must persevere!!!

I ended up re-photographing my entire show today -what a huge job! There will be about 68 paintings in total, along with photos and text -and I am WAY behind doing the book that will accompany the exhibition. You'all better come if you are in town!!!
