Cindy Harris

Fave Place to Paint: My favorite place to paint is where I can be present in the moment … Living in the Finger Lakes of New York State gives me subject matter for all seasons, light, color, and value. I also LOVE to travel to paint with friends.

Fave Subject: I love painting scenes with water. We have many lakes here and I am always attracted to the calmness that the water brings to my soul.

#1 Choice of Media: I use a limited palette of W&N oils on Raymar Linen Boards. It is a lightweight way to travel and I come home with paintings I can use as studies or as finished paintings.
