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: www.klingerart.com. Enjoy!

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!

The Yellow Springs Arts Council, at 111 Corry St. in Yellow Springs, is hosting a show of sunflower art - much of it created at a "sunflower paint-out" coordinated by the Tecumseh Land Trust late last year. The owners of the land (the former Whitehall Farm) plant a field of sunflowers every year and entrusted their land to the Tecumseh Land Trust to keep it safe and sound, in perpetuity. That's what they do. For more info. on this great organization, check them out at: http://tecumsehlandtrust.org/.
My photo, above, is of my painting, "Sunflowers 2." The piece is a 20" x 16" oil on canvas. It is a vertical, as shown here, not a horizontal as shown in the current Dayton City Paper. Oh well, I guess there's no such thing as bad publicity. Anyway, I hope you can catch the YSAC show, which runs Sept. 19 - Oct. 11, 2015, with an artists' reception this Sunday, 9/27/15, 2 - 4 PM. It is free and open to the public. Good people will be there, good art will be shown and sold, and good food will be served! P.S. And a good percentage of artwork sales goes to the TLT.
P.P.S. Oh, that's me at that paint-out in the photo on the right!

As mentioned, I have 3 paintings in the Village Artisan's current show entitled, "Scapes...of all kinds." (see previous post). I saw on their site that all 3 pieces made it on one wall - and in one image - on their site; so I'll share them here with you. They are the long thin vertical on the left (a treescape), the lower horizontal on its right (a riverscape), and the vertical to its right (a cloudscape) - THIS ONE SOLD.
