Sharon M. Bartell

Sharon Bartell chose to be a rural, cliff dwelling watercolorist, overlooking a waterfall. The organic shapes and seasonal sounds in nature are essential catalysts to her paintings. Through a unique combination of research and empathy, her energetic watercolors reveal the spirit of her chosen subjects. Her layered, intuitive abstractions evoke recognizable symbols in thematic compositions. She feels she shares a kindred spirit with Burchfield, Giotto, Rembrandt and Van Gogh in her ability to reveal an animated life force emanating from the physical appearance of a subject.
