When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Kirstine Reiner

Too many realist still life painters exhibit enormous technical skill creating cold lifeless images. These have a subtle humor to them and the painting itself is warm and inviting. Her portraits, including some self-portraits, have the same candid and wry approach. It was hard to pick which pieces to put here. It's better to look through them all. With some artists the cumulative effect is more potent than any individual piece. Go to www.kirstinereiner.com.
