2021 Fall Small Works Sale


2021 Fall Small Works Sale

Three years ago this month I signed the papers that landed me a great and affordable apartment with marvelous north light. When NYC was locked down due to Covid and I was unable to travel to my studio, I purchased art supplies and set up a small easel on my kitchen table by a large, light filled window. Working on small 6x6 inch and 8x8 inch paintings I was able to continue painting, capturing my impressions of New York. Since returning to my studio, I’ve continued working small both there and at home for a variety of reasons. Being a working artist for over 40 years, I have studio shelves filled with beautiful paintings with little room to store more. These small and affordable artworks allow me to continue having an income from the sale of my art. 

The 6x6 inch paintings are mounted on 8x8 inch black panels and the 8x8 inch paintings have been professionally framed in a wood floater frame with either a silver or gold trim. Prices range from $275.00 – $500.00 (shipping and applicable taxes included in the price). 

I invite you check out my small works, many created this past year, on my website sharonflorinart.com/small-works.html.

Feel free to contact me for information on availability and price as several of these paintings have been sold.
The sale continues. In addition to my small paintings I am offering a selection of my quilted and fiber art projects – pillows, wall hangings and quilted throws on my Etsy site, www.etsy.com/shop/sjfstudio. Learning to hand and machine sew several years ago this is yet another creative outlet. I liken it to painting with fabric and thoroughly enjoy this new adventure.

SoHo Construction


SoHo Construction
Oil on panel
6x6 inches

What does one see while walking around the city - construction workers of course! It doesn't matter what neighborhood you find yourself in, the city that is constantly tearing down and building up is filled with these workers, high atop scaffolding, drilling, hammering, lifting, building.

These two gents were working in SoHo one summer's day. Good to know the construction trades are doing okay in these times.
