Although I live in Texas, I am well acquainted with the gorgeous mussels harvested along the Eastern Seaboard in the US and Canada. The exquisite deep purple and blue shells contain delectable gems of food within. Since I can only find frozen bags of mussels here in and the “fresh” mussels that occasionally appear in the supermarket are generally of suspect age and origin, I will occasionally order them from the East Coast and have them flown overnight to my front door. They are well worth the the financial splurge!
This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges and comes wired 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."
