Paints, Tissues and Sneezes

One of my favorites, I love the colors.  

I can't remember a time when the urge to PAINT has been this much of a pull.  Its been ages.

One of the last Christmas ones.

And even with me being sick this week, I've still managed to crawl into the studio and work on some canvases.

One of my favorite scriptures.  

Then, Sweet Hub got sick too.  And then really caused me to run and hide in the Studio.

Another of my favorite scriptures.

I'm still trying to find my style...and get what is in my head, onto the canvas.   Close, but no cigar, as they say,

I wanted this one to look like chalkboard, with just a hint of color.

Valentines is on my mind.  

This one turned out a little wonky, but one of my favorite JRR Tolkien quotes.

Another great scripture.

I love em all in a pile!

But I've taken almost all of the canvases down to work and they are selling.  Which just makes me happy.  One woman bought the one above, because she said it just made her smile.  I love that.

Speciality work always makes me nervous.

The guy at Valvoline, when he saw the canvases in my car, asked if I could paint one for his daughter.  I said sure...I worked her name into her favorite quote.  I loved the way it turned out.  He told me it was better than he expected.  LOL.

Sketch once, but check your spelling twice.  :)

Sometimes though, I have to re-check my spelling.  Oops!!!  I've put a few on my Etsy.  And it goes without saying all images copyright Cindy Mayfield.  Please do not use without permission.


  1. These make me the sentiments, and at the form and color. I've just tried my hand with the swoopy lines and different sized fonts. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. These signs are MARVELOUS!!! I've got to make a run to your store this year. Every time my husband and I drive by your town on our way to or from central Texas, I say, "We have to go spend the day there!". This's gonna happen!!! Happy New Year, Cindy!!!

  3. Hey SRG...always glad to make someone smile. Yay, glad you trying some fonts. Let me know if I can help in any way. I LOVE to write! :)

    Hey Allie, I would LOVE it if you would stop by sometime, would be so cool to finally meet. Happy New Year to you too my friend. And thanks for the kind words on the signs.


  4. Here I am again commenting on this post. Because you've provided so many charming sentiments, and the graphics alone are joyful. Happy New Year to you. So many lovely things going on in your studio, both on the desk and surrounding it. I like the dusky colors of your new journal.
