I am a glutton when it comes to oysters.  After downing a dozen or so at various restaurants, many of the shells come home in a bag (or wrapped in a napkin in my purse). They are then cleaned and used as models for my paintings. This is one of them.

Getting to Know Kristine

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."
