Mixed Media Painting Art
I recently noticed a familiar name show up on my Facebook Fan Page and I thought it was nice to see an old collector. Shortly afterwards a message showed up requesting a commission of my “Gold Dust”( painted 6 years ago). I am very selective these days about custom work, but I remember this man and his lovely wife. Beautiful people who have made a home for 7 of my original paintings. Even though I have not heard from them in over 6 years, it is really touching to know I am still such a vital part of their lives and they want more. They have gone from renters to home owners. This will be going in their entry way for all of their guests to see first. I am honored…

As promised, I am sharing more of my work from my art school days. I did not do much painting back then. My degree slants toward the commercial side, so I used pencils, pens, and markers as my primary mediums. One of the good things about schooling is that often you are challenged to try techniques that you would not have chosen otherwise. My “Proud Lion” above is creating using what is called “stippling” and is referred to as pointillism in art terminology.
This was created nearly 25 years ago. There was no computer help. The entire piece was done by hand using an ink pen on white cardboard. Many countless dots over and over again (including what looks like solid black) make up his shapes and shadows. I had to “draw” him in my mind and couldn’t rely on printing out something I could dot over. Nope. It’s all handmade. In the close up, you can see the irregularities in the dots which is a dead giveaway that no computer was involved.
I am not knocking computer work. I use it all of the time now! I am simply remembering the cramped hands and cross eyes of yesteryear. 😉 I also appreciate the fact that nowadays you can make mistakes and quickly fix them. Back then there were a lot of “do overs”.
Times have changed, but true art remains……timeless.

When was the last time you met someone who was really charming? You know the type. Someone who has an open, friendly and contagious smile. A person who has a real way with words and could convince you that just about anything was absolutely wonderful simply because they believe it is! I am talking about the genuine type and not the sleazy car salesperson who is trying to be charming just to sell you a car. Do you even know someone like this? Are you sure? You may not be able to know the motives of people, but look deep into my new painting and be “charmed”……be sure…..

It hurts when an artist has a painting returned. For me it is very rare. In fact, I can count on my hands the returns I’ve had in 10 years! Considering I have shipped out over 3000 originals, those are pretty good statistics. The piece you see here was returned recently. That stings bad enough, but the people were nasty and mean about it. They said it was ugly in person and that I didn’t do a good job in creating it. They saw it as a “product” and not an expression of joy and creation. They treated it like something they bought at Target. I knew in my heart that they were just unhappy people inside and that nothing would satisfy them. There would be no art from any artist good enough for them. But it still hurt. I also knew that one day this painting would end up in it’s rightful home where it would be loved and appreciated. That someone found this wonderful piece last week and this is what they had to say: Sharon, The piece arrived safe this morning. It is more beautiful in person than it is online. I can’t tell you how great it makes me feel. My life is turning a corner and this piece of art will be front and center. Thank you again for allowing me to purchase this piece. Thanks for bringing this light, life and beauty to my life. Yours, S.D. I have a great gratitude. So to the couple in Texas who returned my “Invisible Blue Sun” I want to say thank you. Your return made someone else VERY HAPPY…….and that is priceless!
