Blue Pillars
A painting from Sharon's photograph of a weathered cottage in Key West's Bahama VIllage, the original "La Africana" section of town near the ocean and the old Navy base. Wooden clapboards, shutters to dispel the heat of the tropics and vibrant Bahamian-like colors--all coalesce for this interpretation in acrylic by the artist.
Angela's Shutters
Sitting just across from the whitewashed mausoleums and chiseled marble headstones in the cemetery, along Angela Street, this classic frame dwelling with the lovely banana tree, became the first subject that Sharon painted en plein air. The light was perfect.

Hurricane House
Inspired by the both the island's iconic vernacular architecture and the summer storms, that sometimes become mighty hurricanes, to be weathered, this Hurricane House image was the cover of Sharon's 2004 Walking & BIking Guide annual. Turquoise and cobalt--blues that epitomize the Florida Keys-- are an inspiration for Sharon's paintings.
Louisa St Casa
This nineteenth century cigarmaker's cottage was built in the Gatoville section of Old Town Key West, just at the zenith of Key West's economy, which rested upon the emerging tobacco industry. Cuban rollers, packers, strippers and boxers handled the tobacco leaf from Cuba and shipped the smokes around the nation. Workers usually lived in the small "shotgun" quarters built by their employers; men like Eduardo H. Gato, who owned a number of factories, built Mercedes Hospital, and funded the first streetcar on the island. Sharon once lived across Louisa Street from this charmer, and it became a frequent subject.
