June 16, 2015 (Julian) --Artist Michael Steirnagle will be giving a demonstration of his techniques on June 23 at 6 pm in the Julian library. Sponsored by the Julian Arts Guild, this demonstration is free to the public and all who are interested are welcome.  It should be a wonderful program.  His work is outstanding.

Mr. Steirnagle is a figurative painter using oils as his medium.  Moving between left and right brain (form and content) Michael finds pleasure in both worlds.  Usually using the figure as his subject, he seeks to find a comfortable balance between these 2 opposing forces, unconsciously letting life events and emotions effect the end result. 

He finds the painting experience to be a total emersion in a sea of lush paint and color which, hopefully, evolve into a pleasurable and meaningful experience for the viewer.

Michael divides his time between his studio in Escondido and Costa Rica.  His work is shown in several galleries across the country, including one in Escondido.
