Today, I decided to explore my past by drawing a comic, which I have not drawn in decades. The original can be checked out on my Instagram account: instagram.com/kellistretesky. Follow me there. Flash is my subject for the day.
Many years ago, Kelli met her neighbor, Victoria, and soon to be close friend that blossomed into the founder of Biainili. They nourished their friendship over coffee and walks in the neighborhood while discussing art, philosophy and ideas on flying to the moon. After founding the line, Victoria knew she had to incorporate Kelli’s artwork. It’s been a beautiful and exciting collaboration ever since and the results are fabulous!
Now everyone can have Stretesky’s art on the new premium perfumed products by Biainili.There are seven sensationally, scented candles made from natural ingredients such as coconut and soy wax, essential oils and signature perfumes. Biainili breaks the mold of trends with the use of fine art on it’s all natural, Armenian-inspired product line, and it shows.
Scented candles can be exclusively found online in Biainili’s Fragrance section. Collections include Tarragon, Geranium & Rosehips, Basil, Benzoin, Fig & Coffee, Walnut & Cognac, and Armenian Pomegranate.
Pictured below is the wonderful Biainili Basil candle featuring the painting Journey (that is still available).

There are many things to consider when you have a painting that you want to keep in good condition. Two of the most important factors are temperature and humidity. When thinking of the environment for your work of art, it is best to think of museums and the lengths taken to regulate conditions to maintain historical works.
Caring for Your Paintings is a great article from the Smithsonian Museum Conservation Institute. These experts cover the most important factors into caring, hanging and maintaining paintings. A great read for anyone who owns or cares for fine art.
