Meditation and the creative act of making art for me is a way of life, a way of seeing, and a way of reaching and maintaining wakefulness and awareness.
Artist Jan Kirstein
“Childhood Memories,” 40″ x 60,” Diptych on stretched canvas.
“This mixed media painting includes acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, graphite and colored pencil and is a replication of my memory of drawing on the walls of my bedroom as I stood in my baby bed.
Because my parents had confiscated all of my drawing materials to preserve their walls, I resorted to drawing by scraping the wall with my hair barrette. This worked fairly well for me and I was able to accomplish my work of art despite the absence of materials at hand.”
