Two Unique Events

Storytelling Studio Walk-through
Capacity: 10 people
- Learn the thought-provoking and inspiring stories behind my painting as we tour my home and art studio. During this time, I’ll share my unconventional un-artist-like history, my path to becoming a self-taught artist, my creative process and what inspires me as well as answer any questions you may have about this artist’s way of life.
- Light appetizers, wine & non-alcoholic beverages provided.
Intimate Party & Painting Demo
- Relax and mingle with good company and other art lovers as you explore available paintings and jewelry for sale in my studio. During this time, I will demonstrate my personal techniques and strategies of my process as I work on a painting-in-progress.
- A healthy array of appetizers, wine & non-alcoholic beverages provided.

Win a Private Party for Six People
All attending guests will be entered into a drawing to win a Deluxe Make Jewelry from Watercolor Paintings Party for 6 that includes a full meal with wine and beverages. The date will be negotiated with the winner based on mutual availability and is good for the years 2019/20. A $400 value.
Can’t attend? Make an online or in-studio purchase or donation at www.marikareinke.com/shop November 10th through the 17th 2019 to be entered in the drawing.
Committed to Making a Difference
25% of proceeds will be donated to the women’s empowerment and contraceptive efforts of CEPIA, a non-profit organization located in my temporary hometown of Guanacaste, Costa Rica. This organization strives to serve the basic and educational needs of the most disenfranchised and impoverished people of the area. I know the leadership personally, their passion and commitment to their community inspire all.
I’m a featured artist at Seattle’s Art Battle on Thursday October 24th.
What is it? It’s 20 minutes to paint with 11 other artists with limited paint and tools. An audience vote sends 4 finalist to a paint-off that night.
Come on out and see what happens. I’d love to see you there!
