Canyons - Layers Of Color By Sharon Hodges

Canyons – Layers Of Color By Sharon Hodges


Original Oil on Canvas

30×24 Gallery Wrap

The deep canyons of the southwest are spiritual places for me. I enjoy painting these places and the frequently changing light. The canyons are sculpted by centuries of elemental erosion, and the subtle color shifts are amazing. I am not trying to reproduce the exact colors, but rather the expressions of my feelings while being in these places.

Sharon HodgesA Native Texan, I Fell To Earth In 1955

My genetic family includes an artist aunt, farmers, ranchers, engineers, social workers, architects, missionaries, CIA, geologists, gardeners, golfers (lots of golfers), historians, teachers, all creative in their fields. I am blessed with many acquaintances and a few lifelong friends.

My mother still has the first four oil paintings I produced at age 10-ish. I forgive her. They are not museum worthy…really, they are not even attic-worthy. Nevertheless, thus began my love affair with paint. At age 12, a landscape sold for $35.00 at The Dutch Art Gallery, Dallas, TX. Intimidated, I abandoned paint for teenage life in the seventies. What a chicken.

Flash forward > four decades of education (BFA University of North Texas), weddings, divorce, careers, daughter, houses, passports, pets, (the stuff of life, lived), and I still want paint. No, actually, I need paint.

Finally, painting is allowed as a priority.

Finally, rejection is merely a learning curve.

Finally, when the work sells, I am thrilled, intimidation be damned.

Finally, time is stolen to ‘shut up and paint’.

Life is good.

Painting is my adjective. I appreciate the opportunity to share my work with you. Thank you for being a patron of the arts.

*This is not a lie….I was a breach birth.
