Read a bit about Sharon, from her website:

Landscape oil painter

To experience an emotion

Trigger a memory

Communicate a mood

Through the use of

Color

Composition

And light

Martha Graham described the artist’s state of mind as “divine dissatisfaction,” a condition which “keeps us marching.”

Finding this quote helped me to understand my constant restlessness with my art, the feeling that I have more to do. I now embrace this condition and direct my passion at the task of creating. Harnessing that energy has been instrumental in my continuing efforts to grow, improve and learn.

I experiment with color, reduce my subject to abstract shapes and design my painting to my liking, all the while using my impressions from the natural world.  How I translate my surroundings into art is what inspires me. Realizing that I always will have more to learn keeps me motivated.

Sharon Weaver was juried into the Oil Painters of America 20th Annual National Exhibition and an award winner at the Carmel Art Festival. She is a founding member of PAC6 Painters; a group dedicated to painting the beauty and grandeur of the American landscape. The group exhibited at the Santa Paula Art Museum in a show with over 80 paintings in 2017. Her recent work was featured in a four page article in the February-March 2017 issue of Plein Air Magazine and she was invited to the San Dimas Art Festival and received the Bronze Medal for her work. Sharon teaches an ongoing studio landscape class with Kline Academy of Fine Art. She also teaches a recurring workshop called Landscape Bootcamp.
