What's Happening

By Cyn Terese Art Studio and Gallery in France


Even though I spent most of 2017 in France, painting walls and painting murals in my home in Saint Laurent de Ceris, I somehow managed to paint several paintings of people and places that I found inspiring.


The first painting I did was of the Town's Church across the street from my home whilst I stood at my full length open window - my version of plein air painting in France.


The next painting was of the Eiffel Tower. I used pictures I took during the spring of 2017 as models for my work. In that painting, I discovered a skill for patience since it is highly detailed.


The following painting was of Maestro Gregory Singer, Founder and Conductor of the Manhattam Symphonie, and that painting was done from a freeze frame of his video. By listening to his music whilst I studied his features and expressions, I was able to truly feel the emotion I wanted to capture in my painting. Since this painting was to be on permanent display over the Gallerie fireplace, I might find it difficult to part with it in case someone wants to purchase it. 


Next, I painted a small portrait of, my dear friend, Sophie's son to give to her as a gift on the 8th anniversary of his passing. He was only 23.


Finally, I began a small painting of a dear sweet elderly man who lives in a Senior Retirement Home near the Square but spends most of his time saying hello to passers by or sitting on a bench in the Park Square. I ran out of time before I could finish it but I can't wait to be back in France to finish it.
