Sharon Standridge

Chico, TX

“I am drawn to painting the American West, especially the era of the 1860–1890s. People are my preferred subjects; sometimes cowboys, sometimes pioneer women and children. Most recently, my focus has been the Native Americans of the Plains—painting the daily tasks and duties of the women of the plains and the adventures and challenges of the young braves and warriors. Thru the years I have acquired a collection of clothing and accouterments of that time period. And I have made some of the clothing for my models as well. With each new painting there is always something added to the collection, to further tell the story that I will be painting.”
