Come see me this weekend in Portland, Maine. I'll be at the WCSH Sidewalk Art Festival this Saturday, August 27th, 9am to 4pm. My booth is in Congress Square, right in front of the Portland Museum of Art. This is a great, lively show with lots of artists!

I have been busy in my studio and will be bringing a lot of new work. I'll have my new Modular Art series, lots of new hens and roosters from my popular backyard chicken series, florals and landscapes.

the upper meadow

I spent my birthday this weekend in one of my favorite spots-- picking blueberries & picnicing with the family. The best way to spend an August day! And THIS is the view from the blueberry fields. Who could ask for anything more?

This piece and many more in the "big sky" series will be available at the Portland Sidewalk Art Show, August 28th. Look for me in front of the Portland Museum of Art on Congress Square.

buttercups & daisies

Another in my "big sky" series. This piece is on display at Burdick's cafe in Walpole, NH through August 23rd. After that, the Portland Sidewalk Art Show on August 28th. More landscapes on my easel...but first a little birthday break tomorrow with my family. Spent doing my favorite summertime activity-- berry pickin' followed by a gourmet picnic in a lovely spot with a view much like this one here.

introducing...MODULAR ART

I'm excited to introduce a new project that has been in the works for a while --Modular Art.

Modular Art are coordinated series of original paintings designed to be displayed in vertical or horizontal groupings. These paintings are affordably priced for you to purchase the right combination of pieces to fit and brighten your living or work space.

Modular art is currently available in three vibrant series: 'Wild Poppies', 'Midsummer Blues', and 'Poppies on Blue'.

These original paintings are only available through Kristina Wentzell. The Modular Art Collections can be viewed HERE.
