Traditional artist Sharon Rachal
is a master of pen and ink, watercolor and oil. Perhaps the true value of her work is capturing on canvas or paper what will become only fleeting memories of days gone by to future generations.
The world-renowned apple growing area of Oak Glen, California
, nestled in the heart of the San Bernardino Mountains
, is where much of Rachal's inspiration begins. She creates art so other people will take a moment to see the absolute beauty in simple, ordinary things such as flowers, animals, barns, and rustic scenes.
Rachel is the founder of the Yucaipa Valley Art Association and is currently an active board member. Winner of many coveted awards, she continues to display throughout Southern California in juried and one woman shows. Rachal is the proud recipient of the Grumbacher Award for best use of color on "Blackie's Orchard." Her painting, "Dawn's Early Light," an oil of an Oregon barn, is part of the permanent collection at the San Bernardino Museum.
