The new version ...

self-portrait ~ 18 x 24 acrylic on canvas

self-portrait ~ close up

So here she is made new and no longer feeling broken...and the background became green for the very reason that to her, green is the color of happiness.

old version: Broken Open ~ 2007

on the new version: I apologize for the slightest bit of the suns rays spread across the painting. Photographing artwork is not an easy thing. Lighting is very important.

thank you for visiting!

Exquisite. You are blessed with
such an artistic talent, as well
as your poetry, emotional and
The eyes of your self-potrait
reveal your vulnerability, your
feminine mystery and your heart.

I have to say, Cynthia, that is one of the most generous and sweetest of comments I've ever received. I appreciate it more than you know.

especially coming from a talent such as yourself!

thank you so much!

I see by your art and your other blog that you do have a deep soul and a real sense of expressing it in a real way.

Like your sense of color and the way you do use it in that expression.
God bless and keep up the good work
