In Cynthia Reid’s upcoming summer show, “On the Bright Side,” color, shape, and texture are key elements in her oil paintings. Reid’s bird portraits, florals, bird nests, cottages, landscapes, and garden vignettes provide a contemporary take on traditional subject matter. In painting her flowers and birds, she takes a whimsical approach and uses a sunny palette of colors. “These paintings are intended to evoke joy and portray the inherent beauty of the natural world,” says Reid.
We will also be showing plein air works created that day during the Orleans Garden Tour.
