One of the most mesmerizing of shells is the abalone. As a child, I had a large one (purchased in a beach gift shop during a family vacation in Nagshead, North Carolina). I kept my favorite pieces of jewelry in it for years. Sadly, it disappeared some time after I graduated from college (any ideas, Mom?) and I’ve always regretted not having one to paint. Recently, however, I acquired a box of abalone shells. I think I'll be busy painting!

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

For Kristine Kainer, recreating her emotional attachments to subject matter, whether a still-life or landscape, is paramount. Her goal is to emotionally trigger a response in the viewer. But, "this response does not need to replicate my own feelings; instead, I hope to make the viewer pause for a moment, reflect upon, then respond to my work in a personal, meaningful way."

Thank you for "introducing" me to Bellamy Murphy, Malie! What refreshing work she does (and right up my alley regarding the love of the water). Your comparison is greatly appreciated!

: ) Your work reminds me a little of what I've seen of Bellamy Murphy's work-she has some great pieces too. Both of you are very talented!!
