Encouraging comments from people who have viewed and purchased my work:
'Your people portraits are outstanding. I am so inspired. Plus, I wanted to mention that your Biblical themed art works (truth inspired works) are works that swirl around in my head, but I haven't gotten to paint/draw yet. The ideas are there but the product isn't there yet, if you know what I mean. Anyway, thank you for sharing your talentŁ. Priceless.' Christy in Ohio. (Tickled Pink)
'Anne, your artwork is very beautiful and 'Spirit' comes through very strongly. You have a wonderful gift to use to help heal the world. Bright Blessings' Marin from Ireland (Annunciation)
'Ann, this is amazing piece and let me tell you why.... when i was a child, i used to think that I could use a ladder to climb up to heaven to visit God. Also, I used to think that I could place chairs on top of chairs and form my own ladder that way to get there... So, it pleases me to see that concept in your art. See, spirits do communicate! Have a blessed night !' Fania in Florida (Father's House)
'Your current profile pic painting is really beautiful (I am a butterfly-loving person), which led me to check out your Etsy shop. As I mentioned before, mom passed away just this past July 24, after suffering many complications due to a simple broken ankle months prior. My siblings and I are in the process of designing her memorial stone, and the symbol of the dove(actually 2, since someday dad will be laid to rest there, also) is one of the images we have chosen.
When I saw the piece, read your notes, and clicked on the link to Fine Art America(which didn't link to you directly, so I had to find it by searching for the title of the painting, btw fyi), and after reading your description about how a human rights organization chose the image with the word JUSTICE added to it, everything just came together, & I knew it was meant to be, as I briefly described in my note to you.
Yes, to me it is definitely proof that God does get directly involved in the hearts and lives of His children. I thank YOU for allowing the Holy Spirit to work through your art to touch our hearts.
My life, especially within this past year or so, can easily be compared to a rough and bumpy roller coaster ride, consisting of many ups and downs along the way. 'You just can't make this stuff up.', has been my M.O. There are too many chapters of the book to mention, but today's experience has definitely been a wonderful blessing, which I will remember whenever I see your beautiful painting.' Deb in NY (Prophetic MS 20)
'I bought the largest print available. It speaks to me at such a profound level. We are creators and the very essence or stuff that we use to create is available to all of us. We form intentions and then we bring those intentions into creation through our choices, our mind sets, and our actions. We become weavers which is what this print signifies for me. Anne creates amazing paintings.' David in Michigan (Prophetic MS 20)
'Very awesome image of a fantastic miracle of God. I read that they believe the walls actually went into the ground allowing the Israelites to enter easily. God is grand, His wonders to perform. The greatest wonder today is that He sends His word and the walls in our hearts fall down and He enters easily through love. Glory.'Ł Kathy in Alabama (Blowing the Shofar at Jericho)
'Anne, I've been on your site for over an hour this morning! I've been in amazement, I've wept before the Lord as I've read what he gave you for your paintings, I've rejoiced with you! You have been such a blessing and a tool of our Father for me! God bless you and I will be back many times..I love all I've seen so far!' Ł Marsha from Indiana (Prophetic MS 13)

As you look on my gallery pages, you will see mostly spiritually driven artwork. Some I have done for fun, but most of my work is done from my personal inner journey. You may think, what does this person really believe in? You will see things that may seem like they are from eastern thought or tradition or metaphysics, some may have Christian themes. Even in the Christian themes you may see biblical reference in a Catholic tradition, some in a non-denominational tradition. Each represents a phase in my journey. Though the images may have just been uploaded a couple of years ago, some paintings may have been produced twenty or more years ago. Most recently are my Christian prophetic sketches, with Catholic biblical reference. Now (8-16-2012) I feel I have been led to let go of all that takes me away from Christ including man-made dogma,ritual and tradition. I'm excited to see where this will lead me!!! By far the bible and having a relationship with Christ is the most powerful and rewarding and one I am committed to. After all He showed us what love is. What a hard example to live up to...but well worth it!
Anne Cutri has shown her work from Boston to Dallas and points in between. In past reviews, her work has been described as ´┐Ż. . . luminous, spinning, glowing celebrations of the universe housing its own consciousness as humanity...'( John Bender, 'In Pittsburgh) 'Cutri paintings communicate ideas of spirituality and metaphysics through her use of sweeping color, canvas juxtaposition, and diffuse imagery, merging Eastern and Western traditions in her vision' (Valerie Johnson, Little Rock Free Press) Most recently, Cutri ´┐Żs work embodies her personal mysticism, mystery married whimsical reverence. The thick strokes covered in rich oil glazes engage the observer in a very disarming way.
Decorative surrealism or symbolic abstraction, Cutri´┐Żs paintings are clearly the work of a visionary. Her first big influence was Georgia O'Keefe and in her early 20s, Cutri traveled to Taos, New Mexico, to find her. Cutri recalls, ´┐ŻO´┐ŻKeefe was still alive then, and I even found her house, but was told that she had been moved to a hospital or nursing facility. Faced with just a rental car and the unfamiliar territory of this red-earthed town , I realized the only way to get to know her, would be to take in the landscape around me, and try to see what she saw. I then began to pray, meditate and absorb her world around me. Soon after that, Cutri researched other artists based on O´┐Żkeefe´┐Żs style and influences. This lead her to such artists as Odilon Redon, Jackson Pollock, William Baziotes, Mark Rothko, Agnes Pelton and many others particularly naive and folk artists.
Anne Cutri has been a practicing professional artist for over 30 years. Her paintings have been shown with Paul Laffoley at the Boston Visionary Cell (see American Visionary Art Museum) and Beth Ames Swartz and Nancy Azara at Sun Cities Art Museum. Other galleries and museums include but are not limited to: Frick Fine Arts at the University of Pittsburgh, University of Dallas, Arkansas Art Center, LaFond Gallery, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Trumbull Art Gallery, Rivermarket Art Space. Cutri is also featured in private and commercial collections, including a 15 painting commission for the pediatric office of Dr. Joseph Barber. Her children´┐Żs book illustrations, including the commercially distributed Henry the Hesitant Heron, reflect the same versatile whimsy as her two decades of painting. Cutri has written and illustrated three children´┐Żs books, and is currently working on a graphic novel.
If you are interested in the original painting, talk to me about price--it is negotiable. On the multiple canvas pieces, if you are thinking of buying a print, I suggest that you buy a paper print and then take it to your local frame shop and have them drymount it to foam core and then cut out the print along the image of the canvas to eliminate the background, Then mount on a mat board a color of your choice.
FYI: I will be glad take any one of the images here and add your personal note, scripture, inspirational saying or quote. Just email me and I will add it on at no extra charge.
You can purchase originals at the website link to the right. If the artwork is not up, please inquire via email.
Also, if you purchase a print, I would love to hear from you, via email. We don't get to know who you are, when a print is ordered, just where you are from. I would love to send you a personal thank-you! Just drop me a line via email if you wish. If not, thank-you so much for appreciating my work, and have a Blessed day, week and in the years to come!
