Design Inspired by Enrique Gillet

Sometimes you find inspiration from other designers. In this case, Enrique Gillet's work inspired me. Designs from the 1920's book Vines Decorativas shows gorgeous Art Nouveau work, and I love anything that incorporates design and plant-like elements. Have a great day. Love, Cynthia ❤️

Painting "Fraternal Foliage (green)" is an Ode to Nature

Bringing the outside inside, is the theme of Fraternal Foliage (green). I grew up around lush Pacific Northwest greenery where leaves are abundant, so I made a painting as an ode to plants. Love, Cynthia ❤️

On Repetition...


Repetition is something humans appreciate, whether it the pattern on our favorite shirt, or even our heartbeat. The certainty of it creates comfort. In this drawing, I repeated the same shape, but tried to jazz it up with line and value. ❤️ Cynthia

My Top Nine for 2020


This pretty much sums up my year 2020! Sure, there were low points, but there were many more high. I have to admit, for an introvert, this is pretty good. I was able to post regularly, even though it was often uncomfortable (putting myself out there)! Here are my top nine for 2020! What are yours?

A story about "Fraternal Foliage (glow)"

Fraternal Foliage (glow)

What the Fraternal Foliage series is all about

Fraternal Foliage (glow) is part of my "Fraternal Foliage" series, which I began in 2005. I love pattern and shape, and it all started with playing around in my sketchbook. I also grew up around around massive amounts of greenery in the Pacific Northwest (Portland, OR). Surrounding my house were layers of English ivy, and I was always under a canopy of by tall trees. In essence, the shapes in my painting are an abstract riff on dense leaf-like forms. Finally, I create movement by grouping, and strategically-placed bright color.

The painting itself is layered: I start with a drawing in the background, then add paint, and finally beeswax (encaustic medium) as the last layer. With a metal stylus, I write into the beeswax, which creates grooves. These grooves are then filled in with burnt umber (brown) oil paint, as well as white oil paint.

Gouache Painting "Egg Aura II"

Working small has its advantages. You have an intimate world to control, a small space, where everything is within reach. This size is my comfort zone. Working larger makes me figuratively and literally stretch. Here's to working within, and outside of your comfort zone. Love, Cynthia ❤️

Hand Illustration

 

The idea of filling up every bit of space with decoration is a propensity of mine. In art, this is called "horror vacui" or fear of empty space. It's the opposite of the minimalist aesthetic. I like to contrast my extensive designs with white space so the viewer's eyes can rest. Still, decoration is fun, and I adore fun! Love, Cynthia ❤️

Consider a commissioned hand, similar to this, only your hand! The size would be 7 x 5.5 in. $97. Send me a photo, and we'll start there.

Succulent Puff II

Christmas is around the corner, and the only connection this piece has to it are the colors.

Red and green, which are complementary colors, intensify each other when they are near each other.

Even though I didn't have Christmas in mind when I created it (actually, succulents), I chose these colors to create a fun combination of bright and dark. Love, Cynthia ❤️

Connecting Ovals

An Early Biomorphic Painting

Way back in 2003, I took a mixed media workshop at the Sitka Center. I have the desire to learn about encaustic wax (refined beeswax with damar resin) to create layers.

I was working on my style at the time, and out came this. It's called "Orange Bioforms". Love, Cynthia ❤️

Although this piece doesn't exist anymore, there are many pieces on my website that do: www.cynthiamosser.com/originals

Biomorphic Wreath

Circular forms represent eternity, as they have no beginning or end. This circular form is made up of biomorphic shapes from my mind, and these I could create ad infinitum. Love, Cynthia ❤️

A Room with a View

Imagine yourself here with a cup of coffee, foregoing the footstool, and propping your feet on the window ledge. Maybe the view is as good as the painting next to you. Maybe not. Still, this image "Egg Aura III" enlivens the space, allowing you to feel creative, happy, and energized. Love, Cynthia ❤

My Abstract Forms

Sometimes shapes and forms just fall out of my pen. The truth is that I saw a mirror in this shape, and nearly fell over. I had to find a way to incorporate it into a drawing. Have a great day, Cynthia ❤️
