Cinda Jo Bauman: Children's Book Writer & Illustrator, Cut-Paper Artist, and More!

smooth landingsFinally finished! Hope for Smooth Landings, Acrylic on 36×24″ canvas. This is an intuitive prompt painting I started over a year ago with a group of artist friends from an online group called The Paint Circle. This group was a spin off of the Flora Bowley Ecourse I took in 2012. Each member suggests a prompt to get you painting such as: write a letter to yourself on the canvas, paint something you find outside on your canvas, paint with your opposite hand..until you get an idea of what the painting wants to be. I decided to paint a goose after painting feathers, so I found a reference photo and then many, many layers later…done! The photo doesn’t show the colors and textures as well as I hoped, but I’m so happy I kept trying because I really love it.
