Over a career spanning 38 years and over 2,000 paintings, Sharon painted many subjects, primarily in a series format.
The chosen topic resulted in works that stand alone on their own merit, but also powerfully combine to tell a story.
In each case the choice of subject matter dictated the medium, size, and style that would best communicate the message.
Some of the series were a one time project, while others, such as the draft horses had numerous versions throughout her career.
Early in her prolific and dedicated career, Sharon painted under her married name at the time, Sharon Holmes, transitioning to Sharon Christian Holmes.
Then in the early 1980's, Sharon reverted to her maiden name for the reminder of her career - Sharon Christian.
