Little Sunflowers, 2019, Watercolor, 3 x 3 inches (Framed 7 x 7 inches).
Klinger writes on her works, "I am inspired by simple images. I attempt to interpret the subject in a variety of ways by using whatever medium or material that seems appropriate. The paintings are then presented as works on paper with strong emphasis on watercolor. In the end, I invite the viewer to enjoy the unique beauty of ordinary things."
