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 ❤️

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

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?

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.

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
