"Olde Carthage Farm Pond" Original Oil Painting by Sharon Martin Stabile
Olde Carthage Farm Pond, an original oil painting by Sharon Stabile painted on primed paper and painted plein air, measures 10" x 12" framed.
Sharon moved to the Sandhills from Baltimore, Maryland after retiring from a career in the medical profession. She’s now a landscape artist who enjoys plein air painting.
Sharon loves the challenge of being in the elements and the beauty that one only sees in nature. In her travels, she's constantly photographing, sketching, and painting small studies that she then brings back to her home studio in Southern Pines for further development. Over the past few years, she has traveled to and painted Lavender Road in Provence and the Luberon, the coast of Ireland, at Ghost Ranch and in the Rio Chama Valley in New Mexico. She describes her experience in France in this way, “As a plein air painter in Provence, a major challenge was “to not disturb the bees!” The lavender farmers in Provence are committed to saving the bees by natural farming without pesticides. It was as glorious to be surrounded by millions of bees making lavender honey, as it was to be in a magnificent field of lavender! The bees didn’t seem to mind my artistic intrusion, and the symphony of cicadas and bees humming, drowning out all other sounds, was an incredible experience. I wish that you could hear the sounds and smell the sweet perfume in my paintings.”
Sharon is driven by the challenge of capturing and representing a moment in time in a manner that allows others to experience what she has in these special places.
