Welcome to Kristina Billinger Art

Welcome to 2019!  

As I reflect back on 2018, I'm grateful for all those that visited my shows and for clients who purchased my artwork for their homes.  2019 was my best year yet and has encouraged me to set my goals a little higher for 2019. 

I stepped back from a busy show schedule in 2018 for some personal time but have a real itch to get going again in 2019 so I've been busy sending out applications for upcoming shows and planning my body of work for the coming year.  I'm going to revisit a series I did in 2018 called Hartman's Bay.  I'll have a variety of sizes and compositions for this series which was delightfully bright and colourful.  It's also been the subject of two commissions for dear friends who camp in this spot.  So needless to say, it's a favourite of mine.  I'm also going to do an Island series from photos on our camping and canoe trips as well as a series from Blue Mountain where we frequently vacation.  This summer we're off to Saguenay Region in Quebec so perhaps there will be some real gems to paint later this summer.

In terms of shows, I'm off to a good start for 2019 with a show currently at The Nutty Bean Cafe in Lakefield, Ontario.  It's located next door to The Art Shop where I have a half dozen or so paintings available for sale.  The Nutty Bean show will run to the end of February and consists 10 small to medium sizes winter-scapes.  It was fun pulling these paintings together leading up to Christmas and the Winter Solstice.  Even if you're not in the market to purchase, The Nutty Bean has the best scones in the area and Sherry and her team would love you to stop in for a coffee, tea or lunch.  The Nutty Bean Cafe is located at 33 Queen Street in Lakefield, Ontario.

I'm planning to be at the Oshawa Art Show in the April and October this year and am also planning to be at The Whitby Rib Fest Juried Show sponsored by the Rotary Club July 12-13.  I'm hoping for acceptance into a few other shows in the GTA and Cottage Country which I'll announce in the future.

I had a few commissions in 2018 that were gifts for client family or friends.  I'm always excited to do these commissions as they are usually very sentimental in nature for the clients or recipients.  It's always nice to see my paintings in their forever homes.  If you or someone you know is interested in a commissioned painting, please let me know.  

Thank you again for your support in 2018 and as you get into the swing of things for the new year I want to wish you all a healthy, happy and prosperous 2019!
