New Images added to my Digital Fusion Series.

Four new images added to my digital fusion series. Two have a French Travel theme with 'Dreams at Versailles" and "Nice Climat Ideal".  The Versaille piece gives an enchanting walk through a dream with castle, hot air balloon and a fairytale-like fountain.  The Nice piece was inspired by a stamp on a letter that read "Nice Climat Ideal d'hiver et d'ete". Both use a fusion of vintage photography with digital painting and collage effects.


Another of the new pieces is a romantic, ethereal piece called "Look to the Heavens". It features a tinted sculpture with eyes and head turned upward with a majestic painted cloud in the background. The last of the newest offerings is "Fields Out There" that combines a photograph I took in Spain with my painting "Out There". A romantic yet haunting image with the suggest of a storm in the background done with rich jewel tones.

These can be purchased as prints, posters or giclees in a variety of sizes here.
You can also view other works in my portfolio.

A look inside a dream.

dream (c) 2011 Kristen Stein


On our last trip to Spain to visit my husband's family, we took a few extra days to travel around Rome, Italy and Vatican City. We also spent time in my husband's home region of Valencia, Spain. I was excited to see La Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias (City of the Arts and Sciences) built in the former Túria river-bed and designed by Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava.  The structures built there look as if they were pulled directly from Calatrava's dreams. They are nothing short of spectacular! We had a gorgeous day with bright sunshine and not a cloud in the sky.  This gave a beautiful glow to the white structures against the azure sky.



I put together a collection of abstract photographs of some of the amazing architectural elements. But, these are structures that are best seen in person. They are amazing! Truly like getting a glimpse of a Calatrava dream.

Adorable and Functional!

Rita from RitasCreationsonEtsy contacted me about trading something from my etsy shop for something from her etsy shop. I, of course, found something immediately that I loved and could put to good use.  I've been wanting reusable snack bags for my daughter's lunch bag.  Rita makes the perfect sizes for sandwiches and snacks. They can be rinsed out, washed and used again and again.  My daughter loves them! (I'm saving the coffee-themed ones for me.)


I also picked out these adorable cupcake potholders.  I almost don't want to use them in fear of getting them dirty. They are so cute! If Rita doesn't currently have any available for purchase, just send her a note. I'm sure she'd love to create a custom order just for you.
