Sharon Goldman Book Signing

Join us May 15th from 10am-2pm as we welcome Sharon Goldman.  She is a native Floridian and Fine Arts graduate of the University of Florida had a long career in the advertising business as an Art Director. After raising three children (now college graduates) she started a new career focusing on painting, teaching art classes and writing and illustrating children's books. She has also coauthored a romance novel and a musical with her sister. Sharon has been juried into more than 50 gallery shows including solo exhibitions, won numerous ribbons and her art has been purchased by private collectors. Sharon's style can be described as painterly realism. Her unique images, cropping and use of light and shadow are key elements of her paintings. Her colorful palette and design background help her envision her novel compositions. Working from her own original photographs, she paints in both acrylics and oils. Sharon strives to create work that captures the spirit of Florida. The creative process is what gets her going in the morning and sometimes keeps her up at night while thinking about her next idea. Sharon and her husband Richard, a nature enthusiast, live in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. When time permits, he likes to fish in the backyard lagoon, while Sharon, phone in hand, is ready to capture the photo of his next giant bass. Of course, he throws it back.

A humorous and inspiring story about people in The Land of No, who for generations were stuck in their old ways until a new family moves to town. After resistance and suspicion of this upbeat, kind and colorful family, the people of this down town realize their negativity is positively wrong. This book teaches us about real life issues regarding tolerance, coexistence, positivity and happiness. In the end, the mayor decides to rename the town The Land of Yes.

Children will love this beautifully illustrated book that turns from black and white to color as the townspeople embrace change. Great conversation starters for teachers, parents, guardians or grandparents to discuss the importance of accepting those who are different.
