I am SO excited to offer a unique, luxury accomodation, plein air retreat this June, in the country just 1 hour outside Calgary, Alberta. Diamond Willow Artisan Retreat is a lovely place -below is a Youtube video of it:

We will be working on the 11 acre property during the morning and afternoon, and early evening if you wish! We will relax and talk around the fire or in the hot tub after dark, and really have a wonderful time. All our fabulous meals are included. Price based on twin occupancy $465 per person. Minimum of 6 and a maximum of 10 students ensures a lot of personalized attention. For experienced beginner through advanced level painters. Watercolour students are welcome if they are very familiar with their media. To spice up the deal, all students will be entered to win one of my demo paintings from the weekend for free!!

Hope to see you there!

"Fire Sky at Ghost Lake", winter sale continues by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Fire Sky at Ghost Lake", 9x12" plein air oil on board
$230 unframed, click here to purchase

This year's winter clearance sale will end with the month of March, so if you are interested in collecting some of my art at DEEP discounts, don't wait much longer! This is a painting that I did in the summer when the smoke from forest fires up north was making the atmosphere dense and peach coloured. It was fun to stack all those mountains up with shades of blue-violet, and then to see those colours in the brush in front of me.

Workshop season is soon approaching and I have posted upcoming workshops on the side bar of my blog. Don't hesitate to give me a buzz if you are interested!


Enjoy!

I really love this painting from my cottage in Ontario! It did it from my canoe while tied up to a rock on the shore. I can still remember the warm sunshine and the sparkling water. Can't wait to get back there...
I have some good news: I just found out that I will have 5 paintings in the Stampede Art Gallery this year. It is the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede, and I couldn't be more pleased to be able to have my work in this wonderful show.

I spent the day putting the final touches on a large version of my recent plein air painting "Aspen and Willow", but don't have anything new to show you at this time. But it was nice to get back into the studio, after a very rough winter, what with losing my Mom, Christmas, and my surgery. I think I am refreshed and ready to begin again -yipee!!

I recently found out that I have been invited back to take part in the Plein Air Rockies 2012 competition this August!! I really enjoyed it last year and met so many really nice artists.


Enjoy!

"Boundaries", winter sale continues

"Boundaries", plein air oil on board, 9x12"
$250 unframed, click here to purchase

This was an quite an interesting painting to capture. There was a fast moving river in the mid-ground and a pool area of calm water that was trapped on this side of the rocks, that was reflecting the wonderful fall colours on the far bank.


Enjoy!
