Navigating This Site

There are two main menu categories: Gallery Shop and Portfolio.

The Gallery Shop offers select paintings and drawings from the Portfolio that are available in a variety of sizes. It displays original artwork and finest quality reproductions, including giclee prints and lenticular holographic wall-art. With options for framing and in some collections, additional hand-painted gold embellishment.

Portfolio holds selected pieces chosen from a varied array of Cynthia’s artwork including her most recent works. The artist statements below the blocks of artwork displayed, describe the context and process for some of the more extensive bodies of work developed over time.

Announcements will be published of new and current works at the seasonal vernal, estival, autumnal and hibernal points of the calendar year.

hand-embellished gold

Shell gold embellishment is brilliant genuine 24 karat gold hand-painted onto the print’s surface, modeling the pure gold areas painted in the original artwork. The gold is ground, powdered and suspended in an acacia-gum binding solution. It is hand-painted onto the canvas with a detail brush, outlined in either white or red paint. Glazed in select areas with a jade tip burnishing tool and sealed. As pure gold it will not lose its brilliance. Silver, platinum and copper embellishment are hand-painted in a similar process.
