New Work 2019

"Spring in the Buzz and Thrive Greenhouse"

oils on canvas 12 x 16 with silver leaf frame
This painting was challenging mostly because it was 
about 115 degrees in there, imagine me complaining
about the heat in April,  personally I love the results!

"Burst of Spring" did you ever stop in your tracks 
when seeing a glorious scene such as this? I did and
stayed for awhile while painting it. 
16 x 20" $2500.00

This is "The Wachusett Reservoir" obviously at the end of winter.
Done on location just before the thaw. 15 x 30"

"The Adventure in Ipswich Bay" oils on canvas 18 x 24"
This was winter work, I shot a picture of the Adventure during
the week of the Schooner Festival 2018. Hope to participate
this year again. 

The Old Stone Church oils on canvas 16 x 14"
I was just able to sneak this painting in before the last
meltdown in March 2019. 
It has sentimental value to me, my first husband Tom
and I were married there in 1977.

If you favor earthy colors and almost the smell
of earth you will like this painting, I am definately 
going back to paint this again.
I kinda of like it! 
It's 11 x 14  and $750.00


Horticultural Heroes Exhibit and choice portrait samples

You're Invited to:

The Sharon Jordan Bahosh entry into 
this promising "have to see" exhibit
features works by a variety of artists
of a variety of Heroes:

My entry into the exhibit is John Chapman
also known as Johnny Appleseed. I used the
only known picture of him to create this portrait
and placed him in a mature apple orchard. The 
caricature is by an unknown but genius artist
which I think makes the perfect punctuation for my presentation.

Below I would like to give you a sampling of some of my other portraits


I hope that you have been following my career as I have shown many
a new painting at the Northshore Art Assn., The Rockport Art
Assn., the Lyme Art Assn.,  The Charles Gallery and other venues
this season. I've been painting alot more which are still 
on the easel to be completed and commissions to complete and 
a few ready but I haven't recorded them yet. I seem to 
get more busy every season. Could be that I did alot of
landscape work in my yard this season too. 
The painting above is my latest for the Charles Gallery
in Gloucester and below that is a friends garden that blew me
away when I saw it in a certain light while visiting and convinced
my friend Linda and Lynn to join me in painting it so 
we had a painting party!!!
I will be following up with other exciting new paintings
soon. Thanks for checking in. Your artist Sharon

Time Stands Still

" Time Stands Still, The Lemuel Sawyer 1831 House"
oils on a 24 x 30" canvas
The location of this are is Packard Street in Lancaster Massachusetts
the oldest town in Worcester County est. 1653. The oldest house in Worcester
County is less than a mile from here on Neck Road. I stood out painting this scene
oh about 15 hours total. The only thing left for working in the studio was the road trying to make a simple big space interesting. So it was almost 100 % finished on location and that's the most challenging and most rewarding. It is on exhibition at Rockport Art Assn. MA


Tall Ships in Boston Harbor

Ready for exhibition are these two new works among the others that I am finishing

"The Oliver Hazard Perry Sails Boston"
oils on canvas   20 x 24"  Sold

This is one of the many vessels that I had the pleasure to see
up close and personal at the recent "Sail Boston 2017"
where about 50 tall ships and schooners sailed
by while I watched with my companions aboard the Spirit Cruise Ship
"The Odyssey" It was a grey day but I was inspired by 
the opportunity to put the harbor skyline as the 
backdrop of these magnificent and complicated ships.
Hope you will enjoy more of them as I go on to
complete the whole collection. Be patient though
it could take years with all the pictures I took.
I will also create combinations of sailing vessels
as I see fit to compose. Enjoy.

"The Europa Sails Boston"
oils on canvas 20 x 24"

From the Netherlands the Europa inspired me to create
it with the old and new buildings of Boston Harbor, 
The juxtaposition of the old and new ignites a
visual wonderment in my opinion, seeing old Boston
with the new and a ship built in the last century, so interesting!
And for me that's what I'm all about doing paintings that challenge
our imagination and appreciation of the past.
Hope you like it and look for the rest of my collection as I go along, Thank you
