THROUGH AUG. 31. SHARON LONG EXHIBIT AT COASTAL BRANCH LIBRARY, SANTA ROSA BEACH

Sharon Long is a local watercolor artist, instructor and publisher who has lived in the area for 30 years. Ms. Long’s specially designed palette system simplifies the process of creating rich, vivid colors and strong values. Through painting and teaching, she shares her inspirations from her life of travel with her husband Robert.

Sharon credits Robert for introducing her to watercolor techniques.

They traveled five months out of every year for 18 years, teaching and sharing everything they know about their art form. “Courtyards of New Orleans,” a series Robert painted, is included in this exhibit.

Since Robert passed away in 2008, Sharon continues with their innovative style and easy-to-follow instructions that give both novice and experienced painters confidence when working with watercolor.

Her vibrant paintings are in public and private collections internationally. You can reach her for information, classroom opportunities and commissions at sharon2art@aol.com.
