Sharon Jordan Bahosh at work at Menemsha Martha's Vineyard MA
on "The End of the Line" at right
20 x 24 on linen, this painting was done on location in two visits. 
It is for sale currently at home but soon to be housed in her new
gallery "Atelier" Fine Art and Portrait Studio

"Waterfall" 14 x 18"
oils on canvas
Award winning painting!
This painting in the open air was so invigorating, I was overwhelmed
with the sounds of this waterfall and excited about the movement. 
This is what it's all about! This painting is available at the Northshore Art Assn. fourth summer exhibit going on now in Gloucester. The NSAA is celebrating 90 years of fine art and the artists that have gone before us. Continuing the tradition are artists today who pack their gear and head for parts unknown. The inspiration then sparks the imagination and passion that artists have enjoyed for all time.
Update, the above painting is sold

"Biddeford Pool" 
done on location in Biddeford ME another invigorating painting
keeping up with the tide and the feeling I was inspired by. 
The colors and mood were other inspiration. This was a weekend
that I shared with other artists as we stayed in a retreat center
and were there just to paint and interact with each other at the end of the day.
It is available for sale







"Lily Pond"
12 x 16 is a nearby location that has inspired me each
time I pass by it.  Challenging and beautiful are these lilies and I can
understand why generations of artists have recreated them.

It is available

Harbor Garden oils on linen 16 x 20"
is available, Doesn't a lovely feeling come over you
when you imagine yourself in this place. The scent of a wildflower
garden juxtaposed with the ocean air, the sun on your shoulders are
overwhelming you with a sense of wonder.

long ago and still as charming

Storybook Village is 14 x 18" oils on linen and is available.
What prompted me to paint this little corner was the 
dancing shadows on the brick walk and the fence and architecture and 
the bold contrasts. The composition which the sun's light 
enhanced was just waiting for me.


"Our Lady Star of the Sea"
Gloucester
painted en plein air
SOLD


"Blush Roses Display" oils on linen 16 x 20"
Painted on location in Edgartown Village on Martha's Vineyard
and inspired by the blush roses which you can find all over
the village and I was in the right place at the right time to
record this also charming scene when the roses are at
their peak!
It is for sale




"Harbor and Garden" oils on linen 16 x 20" is available to purchase.
The second most rewarding accomplishment is finding a home for
my work with someone who loves it, the first reward is in accomplishing
the sense of place, a successful composition and a feeling like no other!


This is a winter painting but warm none the less. "Ocean Views"
oils on linen 16 x 20" encompasses the view from some very original
cottages which are a view themselves. I was particularly enamored
with the complimentary color which played a part in making this a 
lively and inviting painting. It is available for someone's home. Enjoy!


"Edgartown Blues" is unlike any seaside village
quintessential blue hydrangea painting. There's not many flowers here but still they 
take center stage. A warm and inviting painting that I just want to 
walk up to the fence and see what's beyond. One of my favorite paintings
it is available.



"Nantucket Colors" oils on linen 16 x 20" is looking for a place
to call home with someone who loves it.
The dappled light  I enthusiastically painted on location
as with all the paintings in this collection. 
The traditional colors, the way you can meander up the street across
flagstone and brick and hear the clackity clack of vehicles on the cobblestone
nearby and you can't help but think of yesteryear when it was horse 
shoes and wagons that had been passing by. Juried into the
Rockport Art Assn. 




 "Brick Row" oils on linen done on location on Nantucket Massachusetts.
The dappled light was challenging and inspirational and the colors
of the brick made this canvas come alive with warmth, history and charm.
It is available for sale and is 16 x 20"

The MOST Chosen print of mine

"Around Town, Gloucester" oils on canvas 20 x 24" is available
Charming villages grace New England whether you're by the sea
or in a small town. The character is from one generation
to another sprucing up and making it new and exciting!


"Dockside Whimsy"
I just thought I'd toss this painting into this section
of my portfolio because it makes me smile.
I did it in the winter in Oak Bluffs MA
and I learned that this particular boat had many lives, once it was a sailing vessel,
here it is a combination, kind of like the house that Jack built.
I get a kick out of imagining the characters who have sailed it and
repurposed it over time.


Let me introduce you below to my latest series 

this a sampler of how 
the collection is coming about



"Old Farm Truck"
now being shown at Arts of Tolland 
Tolland CT


"A Ford of Many Colors" two time award winning painting 20 x 20"
(on gallery wrapped canvas) and included
in the Sept 2013 issue of Plein Air magazine...
is looking for a guy's room, or a den, a burger joint or a contemporary, transitional
couple's living room.  You have to appreciate that these old 
cars will never come this way again. They were classic when made, 
and characteristic of a new wave of transportation. They have
romanticized a simpler time. 


"Antique in the Pines" oils on 24 x 24 gallery wrapped canvas is an award
winning painting at the  Northshore Art Assn. in Gloucester now in it's 91st year.
Today it is a national association. I found this old International 
in Berlin MA which inspired the collection's nickname, 
Car Heaven which is really a business with really cool cars at it. 



"1927 Custom International" oils on canvas 20 x 20" 
is looking for an appreciator. This remained my favorite new
painting until I did the next one and the next one of these old cars.


"Hound Dog Dodge" has got to be my favorite of my old car series
because she reminds me of my old basset beagle that lived for 18 years.
The nose up in the air got me immediately when I found her in the woods.
If she finds a home with you it will be bittersweet but that's why I paint
for myself first and ultimately for you. This painting was juried into 
last spring's Academic Artist Exhibition a national venue.


"Pals" has been shown only once, juried into the opening of the 90th
year exhibition at Gloucester. It is 18 x 24" and for sale. Kind of whimsical
don't you think? Each of the collection of old cars have only been
around a short while so they haven't been introduced to their new owners. 

A newcomer to the group is to be seen soon.


Boats are what inspired my love for painting character and which lead
me to begin painting the car collection you previously saw, I painted this view
on location in two mornings! Yep with all the rigging and complications.
I am so pleased with it and it is for sale. It is the "Amastat" a replica that 
the crew teaches young people each summer the art of sailing.
Interesting note is that the bible from the "Amastat" was 
used by our MA governor to swear into office in 2008.


The Kalmarnycle is another Vineyard visitor which replicates it's original.
The painting is 21 x 16 with a customized frame since it is not 
standard and it is for sale. I did this indeed on location in
just two mornings!


"The Drying of the Nets" in Menemsha Martha's Vineyard
is 16 x 20 and available. I still smell the fried clams in the air
when I painted this a suppertime. But I pressed on. 
If you've ever been to Menemsha it is a casual gem on the northwestern
part of the island. At sunset the visitors to the ocean, some with wine
and some with their to go dinner applaud the sunset!

I have a sister painting to this one that I will reveal soon.


"Menemsha Harbor" oils on 20 x 24 linen
is available to a great home, to someone who enjoys the scents
and the anticipation of summer opening up.
Done on location early in the season.




"Gloucester Boatyard" oils on canvas 11 x 14" is for sale
I did this at the end of the day on the last day of August. It was the second 
painting that day, the first being a very very hot day was a little labored, this
on the other hand was fun and fantastic!


I like my paintings to have meaning and perhaps history, this one is 
for "Two Friends" is history, it was being dismantled this day and the next
Upon returning to complete it there was evidence of a fire which
caught on since they had been using a torch, I still managed to finish
this painting en plein air and it is available. It is custom framed since
 it is not standard I'm guessing about 28 x 12"
