Foothills MeditationsA Celebration of Seasonal Colors 
Our surrounding foothills bring a surprising variety of muted colors throughout the year. Spring arrives with green grasses and vibrant wildflowers. As we work into summer, our grasses go golden and sage rules the landscape. Fall brings muted variations as the plants wither and pull back into the earth. In winter, snow whites cover our hillsides like soft comfy blankets. These paintings are meant to celebrate the muted colors of our beloved foothills. The seasonal colors of our surrounding foothills inspired this series of paintings. 
I am looking to paint the idea of the color, to float this idea across the page as the main subject, like a fog of color, meandering to and fro, a gentle wave of muted colors – perhaps a meditation. 
Cynthia Ellice Noyd is a local, teaching artist living and working here in Wenatchee, the heart of Washington State. She is a self-described landscape painter working in a variety of media. Current works explore pen & ink on large strips of rice paper and oil paint exploring the muted colors of our surrounding foothills. We all feel our best when we create. Helping others to create is a great joy. Cynthia has been teaching at The River Academy for over 15 years. My students bless me each and every day, and for them I am thankful.
