With its constantly changing faces and moods, nature remains a repository of our deepest hopes. These hopes are reflected in the rich colors of Cynthia Reid’s earth and sky paintings. This impression of hope and the enduring qualities of nature are enhanced by her use of a palette knife and oil paint, a technique that emphasizes the creamy texture of the paint and the intensity of its color. Reid’s painting is grounded in a trust of her intuition and an acceptance of the unpredictable.
Above all, Reid says she wants her painting to echo the beauty and wild harmony of the natural world.
