    Shari, I have so enjoyed your sketches and commentary – I really look forward to seeing them every day.. You truly inspire me although I have not translated that into frequent sketching! Your work is so beautiful and I love the way you make it look so simple even though I know it is not.

    Thank you for your artful gifts every day. Beautiful sketch. From today? I had wondered if you would have a chance to capture the very special winter light and shadows today. This is wonderful.

    Merry Christmas, Shari. So glad that you appreciate my “encouragement, feedback and advice throughout the year”… I am so happy that I could be of assistance to you. : )
    BTW, that is a gorgeous painting… certainly worthy of a larger version. The shadows are juicy.


  18. Ruth says:

    Shari, your winter scene with the light and shadows is spectacular. With so much negative
    news around these days, it is such a pleasure to see your wonderful sketches and to be
    transported into your world of people, places and all the great subjects you choose to paint.
    You are obviously dedicated in what you do, and we all enjoy it.
    My very best wishes to you and your family in 2014.

    It is you, my Dear, who inspires us. Happy New Year. And, by the way, this upload, like so many others, has been a watercolor lesson.


  20. Johanne Cousineau says:

    All the best to you and yours Shari!


  21. Yvonne says:

    Thank you so much for the generosity with which you share your art every day. I gain much inspiration from you and your work. Wishing you and yours the best of the season and a wonderful, creative year ahead!


  22. Peggy Haug says:

    Shari, Can’t tell you how VERY much I look forward to your DAILY posting!! You are AMAZING – I know it takes TIME, such a precious commodity… I so admire your determination and drive to paint/post every day.
    I could comment on every piece – you can make a cupboard of canned goods look great! – as well as an instructive value sketch. But I had to comment on this one, because I made a very similar painting back in ’94, I think, when I was visiting Western NY and Buffalo area. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE painting snow scenes!!

    Merry Chritsmas…


  24. Hetterbell says:

    This is an absolutely beautiful painting. I’d like to wish you a belated Merry Christmas and hope you enjoy the rest of the season (I would have liked to send my wishes sooner but was without the internet due to a snapped phone line). Thank you for sharing your wonderful sketches every day.
