Sharon Lips – Using mostly classical methods, I try to capture a sense of place and the many moods of nature in oil paint — whether the serenity of the wetlands in Palo Alto, the playful feeling of sun splashing across the meadow on a day in Spring, or sparkling on a snowy Swiss mountainside. I feel that I have hit the mark when a viewer tells me that he feels he is there, in the scene.
