Clam shells galore can be found along the beaches of the Atlantic. I currently live in Texas, however, I have been deprived of finding these little gems on my trips to the Gulf of Mexico. This particular shell was “smuggled” out of a restaurant in Stuart, Florida where I dined with my father during a recent summer visit and, of course, ordered clams on the half shell. Ah, memories! 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."
