Even though Texas has exquisite oysters from the Gulf of Mexico, I still love to eat boutique oysters from the East and West coasts.  This particular shell was farmed in Washington State in cold, crisp waters.  The jagged shape adds to its unusual beauty. This piece is on canvas board and will need a frame for display.

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."
