'My favorite medium is acrylic on stretched canvas. I love the feel of the brush in my hand and have this burning desire to create beauty whether it be in the form of a portrait, seascape, landscape, or still life. All of my work is done free hand as I first started drawing at age six. People encouraged me to be an artist based on the drawings that even at that young tender age were realistic. Later I transitioned to acrylics learning to master my own particular techniques and style as I am self taught. I have a passionate love for God's creation whether it be in the form of the human body or the beautiful things He created. That is where I draw my inspiration from and apply to my canvas.
One of my paintings on Fine Art America, 'Hope' was donated to Animal Aid Foundation, Dawsonville, Georgia. The painting was used to raise money for this animal rescue. Anyone purchasing a print of 'Hope' on FAA all of the proceeds will go to this charity. I love domestic animals and this was my way of helping. http://fineartamerica.com/featured/hope-cynthia-sheffield.html
Art is my hobby.
