Poodle, 2019

This piece was created while painting at a table overlooking the ocean in Depoe Bay, OR. I often say I can feel what is going on under the water, and having a front row seat definitely helped. Love, Cynthia ❤️ It's ready for your home: "Poodle," 2019 Gouache on Museum Board 11 x 8 in Visit this piece on my website at:

Star Rainbow Flower Drawing

Art and design is always a source of inspiration for me. Often, I'll see a shape, and it'll simply resonate with me. I find this shape exciting, so I repeated it in my favorite form -- a star-shaped flower. Love, Cynthia ❤️ Experience my own art and design at:  

Chiaroscuro Egg

Every so often I'll veer away from my preferred style to see what I can come up with. When I taught drawing at the Art Institute of Portland, I had my students draw eggs with strong chiaroscuro to the various lights and drrks. In this particular drawing, I was inspired by an artist who layers paper as well. I combined the two ideas into one. Love, Cynthia ❤️ Experience more illustrations at:  

We're All Together in This

W e are all one. As much as Covid, vaccination opinons/facts, politics can divide us, we all share something in common: WE ARE HUMAN. We all have our own issues and problems -- some more than others. Be gentle when judging other individuals, as we don't really know the full story. Be kind and loving, especially to yourself. Love, Cynthia ❤️
