"Circus #1", mixed media painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Circus #1", 20 x 20" acrylic and collage mounted on gallery wrap canvas
$400 plus shipping

I began several paintings at a Robert Burridge workshop last summer (the master circus painter), and decided to finish a few of them for a show being held at the Northern Jubilee auditorium through the Alberta Society of Artists. The Edmonton Opera Company is doing Les Contes D'Hoffman, which is an opera based on the circus.  The show will be up until March, so if you are interested in this piece, you will have to wait for it, or pick it up from the show.


Enjoy!

"Annie's Midnight Garden", plein air oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Annie's Midnight Garden", 9x12" plein air oil painting
SOLD

As I am futzing in my studio right now so I thought I would post some work that I did last year and never posted. The one above is my second nocturne ever, and I did it late at night this summer in my friend Annie's garden (guess you could have figured out that by the title eh?). It was quite fun -Annie had lit a circle of candles for me to paint by, and while it was lovely and romantic, it really wasn't enough light to see what colours I was mixing. Soon out came an electric lamp on an extension chord and I was off to the races.

Enjoy!

"Winter's Mirror #2" oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Winter's Mirror #2", 12 x 16" oil on canvas
$595 beautifully framed, click here to purchase

Happy New Year everyone! I haven't been painting much at all since my darling daughter moved back home at the beginning of October, but I did get this one done. It is the second painting that I did from this reference, as the first one sold right away, and I was really intrigued with the light and shadow patterns/colours and the unusual perspective. It is part of my new show that I am hanging tomorrow at Gallery 109 in High River. The theme is "Winter" -thought I better get this show up before everyone tires of the white stuff : ) The show will be up until March when I hope to hang a mixed media show -my favorite thing to paint during the long winter when it is too cold to paint outside. Hope you can pop by if you are in the neighborhood -or if you live in Calgary, come out for the beautiful drive!

By the way, here is the first painting. Interesting to see the differences! Much more focus on the subtle colour variations in the snow banks, and less on "hit you in the face" colour. What a difference in the energy/mood of the two paintngs. I painted them both from a photo reference I took, and its been a long time since I took a look at the original one. Glad I didn't let it influence the second version. Let me know which one you like better, and why!



Enjoy!
