I wrote a post this spring about little stories I write (two to three sentences long) that go along with my paintings.

I’ll have originals, prints, cards, and more available. Full details are on my Facebook page.
Stories have kindled Jamin Still’s imagination since he was small. As a child he drew and painted and dreamed, and the power of those things in his life never diminished. He went on to study painting in college and now he paints and writes for a living. Jamin works and lives in a little stone house with his wife and three young children in Wichita, Kansas.
