Ghosts
Here's my latest ghost floral sketch. The earlier ones are dry now so I'm going to be working on values next.  This one has a more mottled, interesting background.  The white designs look rather impressionistic in this one.  The contrast is too stark, so I ...

Beginning a new Ghost Floral Painting
This is the first draft of one of my new ghost flower canvases.  I've sketched out the flowers.  When they are dry I will go over it and tone them a bit for depth. I haven't worked out where the ribbon will go yet either.  I really like how the mottled back...

New Version of my Coloring Journal
Woo hoo! I finally finished re-formatting my coloring journal to a slightly different size (to be able to be more easily printed) and sent it off to be manufactured. It will now be 8.5 inches Long x 7 inches wide - about a 1/4 inch smaller.  Whew! If it com...

Ghost Floral
I am determined to paint a whole series of Ghost florals this winter. Here is today's painting - first session. I really got into this one and stood at my easel for hours. My back is killing me. Time to go have supper and continue this another day.

My Large Format Mandalas as Zentangles
I am working on creating more open large format (24x24 inch) mandalas which can either be colored or used as zentangle forms.  Here's the zentangle I made from one of these. Here is the original mandala I made this from:

Lizard Love - a 24x24 inch coloring page
I'm on a roll now.  Once more large format coloring design and I will have a half dozen - enough to print them up for sale.  Luckily, there was a big snowstorm yesterday and that kept me home with lots of time to create.  This one has a lizard motif - a cha...

Story
Tagline
Vermont visual artist & illustrator and kirigami papercutter
Introduction
Emerlye Arts is the name of my (Cynthia Emerlye's) art business.  I lead a double life as both a Vermont artist and a life coach. My style is opulent, delicate, and detailed- much like an updated Arts & crafts period artist such as William Morris.  As an artist, I create in several media: oil and acrylic paintings, watercolor illustration (greeting cards and such,) clayboard engraving (scratchboard to most,) and logo design.  As hobbies I am also a kirigami papercutter and occasionally create one-of-a kind wearable art clothing collections. I write an art blog where you can see what I am working on each day. www.EmerlyeArts.blogspot.com
     As a life coach, I help people find their stride, get organized, and work through life transitions and choices.  I occasionally help small business persons develop their brand and hone their message.  Most of what I help people to achieve is clarity, direction, and authenticity.  My coaching website is: www.CynthiaEmerlye.com
