Love at First Sight

6 x 12 canvas

Sometimes, I just want to share in pictures what I've painted. And I draw a blank as to what to say and what to tell you about it. This is one of those times except to say we met this summer. And then he brought his bride to the bath just beyond my kitchen window. They came often and I watched each time in awe. It was love at first sight.


I will be listing this in my Etsy shop. I always forget to tell you that. Also I've listed a print of my last "Telling Secrets" painting. The original sold quickly and I thank you for that.


  1. i love your in progress photos, sharon, and there is something about this painting that is raw but still so soft. it's very intriguing.

  2. the progression is amazing to watch
    your thought process and how lovely she has ended out

    she is gorgeous

    with a decidedly hopeful look ...
    for me my first thought was
    she is waiting to know if she is with child...
    that wonder a young mother gets to her facial look
    which i think you have captured!

  3. Beautiful Sharon! Thanks for sharing some of the steps of creating this magic too!

  4. Ah Sharon this is lovely. Loved seeing the process.

  5. Sharon, so good to see your art, glad you are back!

    Love this, love everything about it!

  6. I love that you show your progress. It is amazing that to start so simply can become complex but still so very beautiful. Bernie is OZ

  7. Hi Sharon!! This one is wonderful-love her!

  8. I love when you show the progress of the work. Sometimes my favorite paintings are the ones in-between.

  9. Welcome back Sharon, you were missed, tht is just information so you know, not so you hurry to blog.

    It was so much fun to see what you did with the girls, I know they loved that experience, doing artful things with people draws them together, I have done some with families very gratifying, and the teacher learns a lot of things also. The beautiful girls did a wonderful job creating. Bless you for giving the opportunity.

    Enjoyed your new piece of art, I always love the enhamcements as much as the person. I understand enhancements better then doing faces, but getting so much better.
    Thank You.

    Have been painting, stamping, and stenciling on my quilts that I have made in the past month.

    A thing to be thankful for, that no matter how ones studies any project tutorial it still comes out your own. A blessing really.

  10. I think she is lovely, and it does make you ask the question, what is on her mind. Or does she just in the moment. Love all that you do and that you teach us all.
    Hugs, Mary

  12. Oh, what a picture. I thank you for sharing the process of making a picture with us. Very interesting......

  13. As always, I enjoy looking at the process as well as the finished work. This time tho I had to stop midway and... gasp... She's painting and EAR!.... deep breath. I've viewed the painting several times now and it just gets better and better.
