***SHOP NOTE: - CUSTOM COMMISSIONED PAINTINGS LEAD TIMES***:
As of Apr. 3, 2016 -
I am currently booked out about 4-5 weeks on beginning new, Custom, Commissioned Paintings for clients. This includes the CUSTOM listings which are purchased through my Etsy Shop, as well as specific commissioned requests created to meet the clients specifications or based on a sold painting that you may have seen online. Please feel free to contact me for specific completion times and to discuss the details of your requested piece.

-------------------------------------------------------------

***A WORD OF BUYER CAUTION:
There are many out there who attempt to duplicate my technique and style. I am often emailed and informed of art being sold online as my work, from countries such as Russia and China. This is NOT MY WORK! These are created in "art factories" without my consent.
Currently, I sell my originals online only on Etsy, and my website, www.contemporaryartbychristine.com
My prints are also sold on: IMAGEKIND and FINE ART AMERICA
------------------------------------------------------------

I am also often contacted and asked by others to please describe how I am able to achieve the overall look that I have to my paintings. My honest reply is that each artists really needs to figure out and develop their own style, if they try to copy others work, the result will often be a piece with poor composition, forced strokes, and will lack an emotional or striking quality. There are many online, and here on Etsy, who will quickly create artwork, copied from my work, and sell it for a price that "seems too good to be true" for Original Art. Many, as I said, are from countries where copyright laws are constantly infringed upon without consequence. Please remember, "if it seems to good to be true, then it probably is". You can rest assured that I take extreme pride in each painting that I create. Being a professional Artist is my livelihood, it is how I solely support myself and my children. I am blessed that I have the ability to do what I am absolutely passionate about. I am very invested in the quality of art that I release for sale to the public, or complete by commission.
------------------------------------------------------

***PRINTS*** - I will occasionally be releasing a select few of my paintings images for the creation of Limited Edition Prints, Giclee Prints on Stretched Gallery Wrapped Canvas, Acrylic Panels, Framed Prints, and Cards. Once the Print limit has been reached, the painting will be removed or replaced. I will list some prints of paintings from time to time as both paper prints and canvas prints on Etsy and www.contemporaryartbychristine.com, I am often asked about texture on prints. PRINTS DO NOT CONTAIN THE TEXTURE FOUND IN ORIGINAL PAINTINGS, however, the overall look, feel, and colors are true to the original painting making prints a wonderful option for certain budgets, or if the original you love has been sold. You may also choose from a greater selection of my artwork & your own style, size, frames, phone cases, pillows, bags, etc. from my online gallery at:

About

Contemporary Art by Artist, Christine Krainock ~ Original Art, Abstract Paintings, Modern, Textured, Palette Knife Paintings

I am internationally collected artist, Christine Krainock, a contemporary, fine art, palette knife painter. All of my original, abstract, oil and acrylic paintings seen on Etsy, or on my website www.contemporaryartbychristine.com, are hand-painted by myself in my unique, thick, impasto style using only the highest quality gallery wrapped canvas and the finest oil & acrylic paints. I have been featured in gallery exhibits, shows, articles, and have had my work purchased by collectors world-wide, including TV/movie networks, ABC/DISNEY, TIFFANY & CO, Publishing Houses - SIMON and SCHUSTER, SONY RECORDS, and numerous public venues. A large part of my work includes creating commissioned paintings for homeowners and designers who collaborate with me to create the "perfect" painting for a given space. I take extreme pride in my work, and my collectors and clients know that I take each and every painting that I create very seriously. I have found that my art can enable others to see things in a new light~ like small nuances found in nature that may be breathtaking and full of beauty, but are so often overlooked. I am pulled towards adding layer upon layer of color with my knives - creating texture. I love the process of allowing my painting to unfold, creating the effects of light and depth with each stroke, while still maintaining intense vividness of color. I am a professional artist, dedicated to creating for others a piece of art that is not only of value, but which touches others and brings enjoyment to the viewer for years to come.

I came to understand, at a very young age, that art has the power to stir emotion within a person, elicit distant memories and/or make one see things in a new light. I feel like I am one who sees the beauty and inspiration in things that some may overlook, or take for granted. My goal with my art is to hopefully allow others to see the beauty in nature, and in simple everyday forms, and to bring moments of enjoyment to their day. As an artist, inspiration comes to me in many forms. I see so much beauty in the organic color palettes of nature and the world around us; the serene ocean, old buildings, textured stones, and even old, paint-chipped wooden doors. I begin each new, original painting without many preconceived ideas about what the completed piece might look like. I allow the paint to flow naturally, adding layer upon layer, building up to the final completed artwork, full of depth, color and textures. This allows me to create unique paintings that are an expression of my thoughts and emotions.

I see so much beauty in the organic color palettes of nature & the world around us - the way light plays upon textures bringing out new layers & depth, inspires me & ignites the creative spark within. I am blessed to do what I love... to be a full-time, artist with the simple goal of bringing a bit of beauty, joy, inspiration and happiness to the viewer of each piece of art that I create.

I am so happy that a few years ago, I did what so many who "create" dream of doing; I "quit my day job". I decided to let go of any fear I had, and I took a big leap by leaving my secure teaching profession to follow my passion for painting full time. Since that choice years ago, my art has become highly collected. Giving up my first career years ago, allowed me to immerse myself not only in my painting, but in running my entire business. Creating my art, along with running the business that surrounds it, and my family is what fuels me each day. I currently work out of my studio in the wine country region of Temecula, CA, nestled between beautiful San Diego and LA, where I am inspired daily by the beauty of my city, the coast, and California as a whole. It is home, and is where I am constantly kept busy painting original works which come from my heart, and commissioned paintings for designers, office spaces, wineries, hospitality spaces, & collectors around the world.

Many new artists contact me asking if I can explain to them how they can learn to paint exactly as I do, and my advice is almost always the same..."Paint. Then paint some more. The way to learn to paint is by "seeing" and by painting - a lot. You need to develop your own style, don't try to imitate another artists style - you will end up feeling confined and the work will show it."

Please contact me at any time with any questions that you may have for me about my commission work, exhibits, media features or available original paintings. My hope is that I bring a bit of happiness and an escape, to those who view my art. At the very least, I truly hope that I can inspire some readers to follow their own true passions in life... doing so really does open doors and create happiness. My best to you all!

Fun Quote:
“Follow your passion. Stay true to yourself. Never follow someone else's path -unless you're in the woods and you're lost and you see a path. By all means, you should follow that.” ― Ellen DeGeneres
