August thoughts

August 19, 2010. Hi everyone, I wanted to have this posted before Ray's and my interview was aired again, but this is close enough. Thank you for joining us here.

I am in the process of organizing a show for Ray in Vermont. As you know, we are selling paintings and prints from this site, too. I am trying to make them affordable for all, but remember,art supplies are quite expensive.

Ray's mother, Rose, has perfect vision now, and that has changed her life. She can actually see her son's paintings. I will be with them in September, and we are hoping that a friend has a house they can rent in a nearby town.

If you, or anyone you know, wants to host an exhibit, please let me know.

Thank you for listening, and for all your heartfelt emails. It is a joy to be a part of all of this,

I'll be back soon,

April 21, 2010

I sat down last night and read all the comments you wrote to this site and to Ray's email (, and was as moved by those as you were by our interview. Thank you, thank you. It was also wonderful to hear from people I have not connected with in years. (On that note, I wonder if the anthropologist who was at the opening is still checking into this website. If so, please email me at Ray's.)

A friend of Ray's has uploaded a lot of new photographs of his paintings onto this site, so please go to PRINTS and scroll down. The dimensions of each work will be added by Monday, April 26th. (This is definitely a learning curve.) Ray and I hope that we have priced the paintings so that with a tiny stretch most of you will find them affordable. (The photographs do not do justice to the brilliant colors.)

If you want a PRINT, and it is not listed as a print, please email Ray Mary Ann Steinis and let her know which ones interest you, and we can easily have that particular made into a print. It might take two to three weeks to ship, as these will be printed to order.

Prints can be shipped framed (by Mary Anne) or rolled up and sent. Also, you will see that some of the oils were framed for the exhibit and look fantastic. The framing done at Framer's Art and Gallery is exceptional. ( I will write about the art of framing in another blog.

Ray is painting every day now, and if you want to see new works, please send him an email, and I will get photos to you. We would appreciate your comments on which paintings speak to you.

The goal remains to get Ray and his mom Rose into a more comfortable living situation, which I am investigating. Ray's dream is to have a computer, and we hope that in the future that will be possible.

I'll be back soon. Enjoy browsing original and prints under "Prints." To turn the music off, hit the far left part of the bar.

Keep those comments coming! We are learning from you!

Successful Gallery Opening!

I wanted everyone to know that the opening of Ray's exhibit was a big success, with 120 attendees, and paintings and prints sold. Ray was ecstatic. We plan to have paintings and prices uploaded by the end of the week. You can also email me: to ask about various paintings and prices, and I can also put you in touch with Ray.

Please be patient, Janet
