Introduced today are my new Iphone bags made with my original pattern and fabrics. They are soft and cushioned ... like a cozy sleeping bag for your phone! You can choose one of the items featured (with or without the strap), or request a custom piece.
These bags can be used for your cell phone, Itouch, Iphone, Ipod, mp3 player, or more. Check the dimensions to see if they will fit your particular phone,ipod, etc.

These can be purchased online in my etsy shop. $22.00

  •  If purchased with the shoulder strap, the strap hangs down approx. 20" bringing the bag to about your hip. (The strap is made of satin cord. It is sewn on the inside of pouch, so it can easily be tucked away when not in use.)
  •  Two interior pockets. (One is ideal for the Iphone, the other for a credit card, driver's license or money.

  •  Custom cotton fabric featuring artwork by Kristen Stein.

2011 Fine Art Calendar with Choice of Display Unit.

I am pleased to introduce my new 2011 fine art calendar featuring 12 prints created from my original artwork. Each of the 13 sheets measure 4x6 inches. There are 12 sheets for Jan-Dec and then a single sheet that shows all 12 months. This is a convenient sheet to display on the back of the calendar display for a quick year 'at-a-glance'.

At the end of each month,  the images can be trimmed and framed to create your own small format art collection.  The calendar pages were professionally printed on FujiColor Crystal Archive Paper.

The buyer can choose 1 of 2 display options.

Option 1 : Clear Acrylic Holder with Easel Back. (Great for tabletop or desk display)

Option 2 : Acrylic Holder with Magnetic Back. (This would work well to display the calendar on the refrigerator or filing cabinet, etc.)

Back from Vacation and Back to Work! September Events.

We had a wonderful trip to Spain and Italy. It was great to get away and relax for a little while. It was amazing to tour the Vatican and view the spectacular art, sculptures, tapestries and more. The history and amount of art contained within the Vatican rooms and hallways were astounding. We spent about 6 hours there and I easily could have spent several more hours admiring the beautiful collections.

I also enjoyed our trips to many of the ancient Roman palaces and buildings. The history and the preservation of the buildings were amazing. It surprised me to see how close modern day businesses were built next to such historic buildings. For some reason, I expected them to be more isolated. But, they were truly in the heart of the city with modern business built right around them. Quite amazing to see as you walk through the streets of Rome.

I took lots of pictures not only of the tourist attractions but also the beautiful countryside and sculptures in city parks.  I am sure the many photos will inspire several new paintings in the near future. The newest works will be added to the blog as they become available.

Now it's back to business as usual and I'll get to updating the blog as time permits.Here's what's coming up for September.

First, I'm excited to be one of the juried artists at the Jenkintown Festival of the Arts. This event is an Art Show, BrewFest and Music Festival taking place from 1 to 5 pm on September 19th in Jenkintown, PA.  If you live nearby, I hope you will consider visiting the event.  It should be a great day. I believe this is the first time that the event has featured the art show. So, I'm looking forward to it.

Next, on September 25th, 2010, I'll be participating in the Friends of Fox Chase Library 2010 Fall Art/Craft Show in Fox Chase, PA in Northeast Philadelphia. The event takes place at Fox Chase Library from 9 am to 3 pm. Hope to see you there.

I will again be offering my 2011 calendars. The format will be the same as last year's calendar. Contact me using the contact link above if you'd like to reserve your copy now. The price is $18.50 with shipping included. Price includes your choice of display holder. Options 1 and 2 will be available for 2011.

More to come in October 2010.
