Hi there. Thank you so much for checking out my work. I am moving over to HOLLYSHARP.NET, so please check out my art over there. Thanks.

I've been getting a few comments regarding the purchasing of my artwork. If the piece isn't marked "SOLD" then it is still for sale and you can contact me here for purchase and shipping information. At this point, I do not sell reprints, but you could commission me (or us) to do similar pieces.

Thanks again for checking out the site,
Holly Sharp

"Without The Space Within" (11 of 13)

Here are the latest photos from the new series. I will add the titles and dimensions in the next day or two.

Art show will be September 22 (4-8pm) @ 4038 Folsom, San Francisco.

All pieces will be for sale at the show.

A note from Ryan: The photos look a bit washed out and less saturated than the actual pieces look in person. You must come to the show to experience them firsthand!

Preview of the Upcoming Series

I am working (about half-way done) on a new series of paintings. I am working with acrylic, oil, gesso, and pencil and mainly re-claimed canvases. The working title for the series is Without the Space Within: A Study on Community and Self. Enjoy the 6 pieces below. And please email me with any questions. Eventually I will post sizes and titles...once the entire series is complete. Feel free to subscribe to this blog to stay connected.

WEDDING BLESSING #3 by Holly and Ryan Sharp

"Wedding Blessing #3" by Holly and Ryan Sharp

May Yahweh root you in his good creation. May the damp air nourish your bodies and souls as they become one. May your life-roots intertwine, producing a variety of fruit yet unknown to us.

This is the third of a series that Holly has created.

"THE GREAT RIVER" (36x48) by Holly and Ryan Sharp

"THE GREAT RIVER" (36x48) By Holly and Ryan Sharp - NOT FOR SALE (but you could commission us for a similar piece)

We have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour.

Now you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour.

And there are things to be considered. Where are you living? What are
you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in the right relation?
Where is your water? Know your garden.

It is time to speak your truth: Create your community. Be good to each other.

And do not look outside yourself for the leader: This could be a good time!

There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that
there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold onto the
shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and they will suffer

Know the river has its destination.

The elders say we must let go of the shore, and push off into the
river, keep our eyes open, and our head above the water.

See who is in there and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to
take nothing personally. Least of all ourselves. For the moment that
we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word
struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that you do now
must be done in a sacred manner... and in celebration.

We are the ones we've been waiting for...

May Yahweh continually root you in places of thick, forested community. May the Creator sustain you from beneath, from the ground of all being. And may the community surround you, offering you shade and space to thrive. May your trunks grow tall and your roots grow deep and intertwined and may that produce a variety of fruit yet unknown to the world.
