Quiet Night Sailing

In addition to offering The Charles House, Monhegan ME as a rental, Cynthia is a graphic silkscreen printmaker and crafts person. She uses a few pages of the website to show her work when it's available.  This page and the Art gallery page will periodically display some whimsical paper cut collages, needle felted birds and animals, and silkscreening work.

"Quiet Night Sailing".   Paper Cut collage

Whimsical pictures created using hundreds of tiny pieces of colored paper, glued together to create a unique and interesting work of art. Coastal scenes, birds, animals, and all of nature’s themes.

As I build the shapes ups and glue each of them together, it feels like I am ‘painting’ with paper, each little piece being akin to a brush stroke of an impressionistic painting.

The majority of the paper pieces used in the designs are cut using scissors, but a few of the finer detailed tiny shapes are done with punches.  I cut them with a knife for years, but the pictures took twice as long to complete, so I’ve incorporated the detailed punches.

One of a kind, picture size (4x6), and double-matted with outside dimension of 5 X 7. This is a “standard size” so it’s easy to find an inexpensive frame at your local store to display under glass.

A fun colorful picture that will brighten up any room!
