Sharon Bass Paintings | Pray. Paint. Love
Sharon Bass is a “plein air painter”, based in Raleigh, NC.
She gains inspiration from her travels and paints in a style inspired
by the French impressionists.
This is a new painting of a small shrimp boat with lots of character tied to a rickety old dock in eastern NC. Shrimping has been a big part of the NC industry since the mid-1900’s. I love roaming around the Carolinas in my paint-mobile looking for scenes like this one. Maybe one day I’ll receive an invitation to hop aboard and find a whole new perspective from the inside out.
10% of the proceeds from the sale of this work
will go to Neighbor to Neighbor in Raleigh, NC.
Sharon’s paintings are colorful and exuberant. Her style is fresh, bold, and not overly bound by time or realism. Her paintings do not dictate, rather they interpret and provide a ‘first step’ in an imaginative visual journey. From the quiet beauty of expansive salt marshes against deep blue skies to time-worn storefronts, each has a rich story to tell.
