Figurative Mash-ups

Cyd fondly calls the paintings in this gallery her “Mash-ups”. These amazing paintings are part abstraction and part literal. Cyd likes to joke she spent way to much time as a child cloud-watching, and staring at multiple layers of paint and finding images is just the same.

These paintings begin exactly like the Non-Objective paintings, using various types of acrylic paints and mediums. They were painted intuitively with no thoughts of what the end result would be when they were initially begun. As layers go on, figures or animals, or in the case of ‘Never Look A Gift Horse In The Mouth”, full scenes appear in the abstract. When this happen the true fun begins. It is much like putting together a puzzle, as I draw the images from the layers. It often seems as soon as I start on one image another appears.
