Deborah Stull-Kinsley – Watercolors

Whether setting up an easel outdoors or in her studio, Deborah is deeply influenced by a sense of place. This value of “place” is grounded in the agrarian roots of her grandparents and in her own experience, years ago, of raising sheep, goats and a llama on a farm in North Dakota. A few years ago, Deborah and her husband, Paul, moved to northern Wisconsin, renovated a neglected cabin and now live, work and create art in a vibrant lake community. Today, she enjoys “playing with color” and painting watercolors in her Wild River Arts studio.

A favorite activity is to take roadtrips and follow the “blue roads” – those lesser-traveled routes that may reveal hidden gems or spectacular vistas. Her paintings often reflect these scenes – from picturesque farms and prairies, to incredible landscapes of the North Country, to the rugged sights of the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland. Deborah works to post a new “painting of the week” on her blog at, on Facebook at Deborah Stull Kinsley Art, on Instagram at @debstullkinsley, and on her website:

Gail Threinen-Chinese Brush Painting

Bio:  While living in Singapore and China, Gail fell in love with the Asian style of painting as well as Chinese Calligraphy. She is a member of the Sumi-e Society of America and the International Chinese Calligraphy And Ink Painting Society.  She has exhibited and won awards nationally as well as internationally.  She won Best In Show in the Sumi-e Society of America’s National Juried Exhibition in 2019.   Gail has been an Arts In Hand Gallery Member Artist since 2016 and her hand painted greeting cards are one of our customer favorites.
 Gail uses the spontaneous style of  Chinese Brush Painting which is about personal expression rather than about accuracy or detail. It is about allowing the brush to flow, which is satisfying and expressive. Compared to western painting styles, Chinese brush painting is typically more free and dynamic. Backgrounds are usually omitted, with the balance between the object and white space being a particular artistic feature.  You can see more of her art on her Facebook page:
