"Royal Melodies" and "Pomegranate Evening" were completed simultaneously expressing two views of a magnificent night sky, which I photographed while driving home one evening in January. The deep blues morph into purple, and pink wisps of clouds overhead dance with the steady breeze. I used a combination of brush work and palette knife to give the work a feeling of spontaneity.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Cyndy

Cyndy Carstens has worked as a graphic designer, art director, illustrator and muralist, but finds herself the happiest when working as a fine artist. The works she creates are meant to get the viewer to stop and stare; she describes her work as ways to get away from the “hectic mirage, the noise and the devices that encompass most of our daily lives” and instead “recognize the beauty that surrounds us.” She has been a professional artist for more than 30 years and really believes in living her art. Her “art mind” never stops – she constantly sketches, brings her camera and sketchbook to new places, and finds objects to repurpose. She currently lives in Arizona. Fun fact: when she was little, she dreamed of being an Olympic figure skater.
