Sharon Farber, Barkhamsted, CT Member Since March 2013 Artist Statement I paint watercolor landscapes of nature, wildlife, oceans, flowers, farms and all that I find beautiful. I paint house and pet portraits too, and teach watercolor classes and lessons. The most frequent comments I receive about my art are “That’s a watercolor?” and “I thought it was a photograph!” This reflects upon the bright colors and intense details found in my paintings. I achieve this affect by using small pointed brushes and more paint and less water than most.
I recently started creating spiritual, or visionary, art. These paintings are different from my landscapes but still filled with bright colors and vibrancy. They are also filled with passion, light, and healing. I am enjoying the greater creativity of watching these paintings appear without a plan or conscious intent of an outcome. I’m having fun.
