Cynthia R Dill
My work brings me meaning and joy. It's driven by a belief that all living things are interconnected beneath visible surfaces and by the rapture of losing myself in the flow of painting and design. It's a great blessing to be able to follow one's heart in this life.
With brush in hand, I ask "What is my intention?" and "where do I see essential character in my subject?" Sticking to those answers, while also being moved by the glory of color, form or emotions crossing my subject's face (and in myself) is all a delightful balancing act.
