What's in a name? - We're still not ready to open to the public - completely - but we're working on it, and I guess we're not quite ready to change names yet either. Sorry for the confusion. We plan to, eventually, go by the name Springs Studio, but not officially yet. In any case, if you want to keep up to date on our activities, feel free to follow us here, or drop us a line, or visit and contact us at our old, trusty web site: Facebook is back in place (KS) now too. Thanks for stopping by!

I'm a Village Artisan!

I'm pleased to report that I have been selected to join Village Artisans cooperative in Yellow Springs, in the 100 Corry St. building. I am joining as a mixed media artist, as I will show and sell photography, paintings and sculptures. I even have mixed styles of paintings: above and to the left are examples of my more abstract and impressionistic styles of paintings. I am happy and proud to join this great group of artists. If you're in the area - stop into the gallery for a visit and/or click on the link to our site on the right!

At Grandview show - Poppies in Summer SOLD

I was told that my large painting (2' x 4') titled "Poppies in Summer" has sold. It's currently hanging off the lobby of Grandview Medical Center in Dayton as part of their 90th anniversary "heART month celebration." My 3 paintings will remain up (2 are available) until the end of the closing reception, community open house and health fair, which is this coming Sunday, 2/28/16, 1 - 4 pm. It's free and open to the public, and it looks like a good time!

"It's Still Life" runs through 3/13/16; Workshop 3/6, 2-5 pm

My 22" x 28" oil, entitled "Matisse Homage" (above) won an honorable mention award at the YSAC still life show opening reception last night. It will remain up, along with "Sunflower Bouquet," below, until the show ends on 3/13. It IS a fun show. Hope you can catch it!

P.S. The Dayton Daily News and the Dayton City Paper did stories on the show.

P.P.S. I'm doing a workshop on capturing the simple still life. It will be held Sun., 3/6, 2-5 pm at the AC. I'll bring some possible subjects and materials, and participants may bring their own too. We'll play around and see what happens. For more info. go to the YSAC site. Hope you can join us!

Painting Away!

I know I haven't posted in awhile - but that doesn't mean I'm not working (or playing). Here's one of my newest. It's a 24" x 18" oil on canvas I call "Sunflower Bouquet." And there's lots more where that came from; check out our site, if inclined: Enjoy!

On Down the Road...

Something's cooking out here at Klinger Studios. Thanks for your patience to date and lots more is needed. We had to put things on hold for awhile, but life is getting back to normal (whatever that is).

And so far, informally, we've hosted a jewelry workshop, a sculpture class, a creative writing group, and musical jams - and more activities are in the works. There is much work to be done in preparation for any kind of official opening but we promise to keep you posted on our future plans, dreams and activities out here.

Above is a photo I made awhile back of the lane leading to (or actually from) Klinger Studios. Stay tuned!
