Two of Sharon's early large draft horse paintings came up for sale.

The Draft Horses Series was a series that followed Sharon throughout her life, as she portrayed these animals from when they helped open up our country, to their role in today's society being loved and appreciated for their strength and enjoyment of hard work. The paintings ranged from being comparatively realistic to abstract, and there were two one person shows within the 155 draft horse paintings, "Power and Grace" at the Wallace Galleries in Calgary and "The Long Ride" at the Leighton Centre near Calgary.
