Getting Into the Zone


This morning in the art studio brings new experimentation and decisions on how far to go. Heaven help the poor washer and dryer! Afternoon involves a walk in the freshly UNmown grass in our back yard to reconnect with the earth.

Fine art, reiki and fashion accompany Ky. Derby Day like a horse and carriage. 💘

Fashion made from Fine Art Studio of Jan Kirstein.

A quote from my dear and erudite friend, and one of my very first students from over 40 years ago: Architect Jay Kratz.

This beautiful, flowing top features drop shoulder sleeves, a flattering V-neck and a hi-low silhouette. This soft and easy, flexible shape is perfect for casual or dressy attire depending on the styling.

Time to get back to my studio and stoke the creative 🔥 🔥 🔥 fires!

The Painting Journey Continues


Our painting Journey Continues with Nancy Hillis’ Studio Journey online abstract painting workshop. Her assignments help free up your expressive inspirations through exploration and self confidence. Growth emerges through experimentation. My own personal journey has opened up possibilities far beyond what I faced even weeks ago. Thanks Nancy!

Painting in a Series

Permission to Create Continues the Journey


Painting and sharing in the new web site format Studio Journey, with our artist guide Nancy Hillis, brings the fulfillment of granting the permission to create, for many knowledgeable painters from all over the world. Nancy Hillis is an inspiring painter, teacher and medical doctor who brings us all together through the website to share her projects, resulting in the creation of art work and feedback from one another.

Thank you Nancy for leading our inspiring journey, which has just begun.

As a beginning, our first intention was to work in a series, encouraging experimentation within a framework of self imposed limitations. Some artists chose limited color range, some chose exploring art mark making. An amazing outpouring of creative production rose from this first task, generating a wide range of very well informed results. I hope to share some of these with you after I gain artist permission for the use of their works in my blog.

For now, I share with you the paintings I have created on this Journey so far. I lost my studio about a month ago and this program gave me the impetus to resume painting again. For that, I am indeed very grateful.

Paintings in Memory of the Homeless


I share a studio with two other artists in Louisville Kentucky. We just recently had a very sad encounter with reality in the form of a homeless man who lingered constantly around our studio door. The story around this man unfolded in a series of tragic vinyetts leaving us all with a renewed awareness of the fact that the problems facing the homeless are, in fact, everyone’s problem.
