Sharon Markwardt

Burleson, Texas

Artist's Statement

As a fifth-generation native Texan, and a fourth-generation artist, Sharon Markwardt naturally strives to be a pioneer in her artwork.  Though she still enjoys watercolors, abstract work, and commissions, a few years ago her horse nudged her into oils and the Western genre. 
 “Everything clicked.  I’m fascinated by the colorful characters and gear, and a horse in motion is an irresistible subject.” 

The results are award-winning paintings with strong design and bright color usage, just a bit on the modern edge of the west. 

Sharon earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Arlington, and has shown in many juried shows and galleries.  A member of several art groups, Sharon volunteers as President of the nonprofit Russell Farm Art Center where she also teaches.  She lives just south of Fort Worth, Texas.

Oil on canvas

As this cell-phone-packing rancher and his mount contemplate the terrain, what are they thinking?  Colorful rendering offsets the quiet mood of the painting.
