"Summer Colour" plein air oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Summer Colour", 8 x 10" plein air oil on board

Just took some new work to Swirl Fine Art in ArtCentral and this is one of them. Swirl is a really nice, if not small, gallery full of the most wonderful paintings you can imagine-make sure you have a peek if you are able.
I have some new work to post but it is too dull to take good photos, but I do have several lined up so stay tuned.

My friend Jean posted this on my Facebook page today, and just had to share it with you!

‎"I have to believe that any act of creation executed for love makes glad the heart of God...I have to believe that I, as one created in the image of a Creator, cannot help but create — and that when I do, I am affirming something fundamental deep down in myself that somehow, in ways I cannot comprehend this side of eternity, has its answering antiphon in heaven. I have to believe that beauty is valid and that in a world of slipshod and plastic and hurry, there is a place for something impractical and time consuming and existing only because someone cared enough to bring it into being." -Lanier Ivester on Art House America Blog


I say AMEN to that : )


Have a wonderful day!
