Aceo Fun

I thought these 2"x3" canvases would be a nice little addition to my display table this saturday.  I thought about turning them into ornaments, but decided against it.  I plan to sell them with the easels for $25 each.  Come check it out this saturday! :)

On the Hunt - 4x4

I've been having fun with these tiny 4x4 inch canvases lately.  I thought they would make nice items at the upcoming holiday boutiques I'm participating in.

Yellow and Gray - 6x12

It's been kind of gray and cold out lately, it made me feel like painting a few of these cloudscapes.

Clouds Over St. Peter's - 6x6

I've been wanting to paint this one for a while, but I was nervous about how all those statues would turn out.  They were much more enjoyable than I thought they would be.

Venice Canal II - 5x7

I completely forgot to post anything yesterday.  I guess that's what happens when I try to do all my Christmas shopping in one day.   I didn't get it all done, but I did get a good chunk of it out of the way.  Now I can focus on other holiday activities, like the two craft fairs I signed up for, and of course lots of baking :)

Venice Canal - 6x6

One of my favorite memories in Venice was sketching I got to do there.  I must have sketched at least a dozen of these waterways, each one was unique and all I wanted to do was paint them!

Church Near Ravenna - 6x6

Busy day yesterday,  I managed to melt a teapot and crack the stove all before 10 am.  I didn't even know I could break the stove.  It's ok, now I'll have the fun adventure of attaching a new stove top.  Luckily I live with an engineer, so I feel like we should be able to figure this out :)

Afternoon at Versailles - 6x6

The opening last night was wonderful! Thanks to all of you who came out for it.  This was my first show where I was the only artist showing.  I think I have to conclude that it was a little less fun that way, I guess I enjoy conversing with the other artists, and not being the only one people came to see (that's so much pressure for an introvert like me!).  But overall it was a good night. 
Although, I did have several people ask me "so you really paint a new painting every day?" yes I do. "do you also lie every day?" What? Why would I lie about that? 
Hello, my name is Sharon, I paint, that's my job, and I do my job every day. "Schocking" right? (oh yeah, and I heard a lot of puns about my name too) .  Ok maybe this opening was just as fun as the others.

Foggy Day in Berlin - 6x6 & Show Opening TONIGHT!

Here's a link to read more about my show opening tonight. I'm getting pretty nervous, and a little excited (nervcited? excivous?) I haven't even seen everything hung up yet.  I've been told that since we're listed as #1 on the passport, things are pretty busy right at 5:00 and tend to taper off by 7:00 (just FYI)

Also here's number 2 in my new series, which is getting me very excited for the Europe trip we're planning for next year!

Foggy Day in Salzburg - 6x6

I spent a lot of time a few months ago going through sketches and photos I took during my time in Europe.  But then I got distracted preparing for my solo show and didn't get any of them painted,  that's what I plan to remedy in the next few weeks.
