About Sand Salt Moon

Our Chloe – watercolor

Hi, I’m Cynthia. After a successful career as a Creative Director and writer in the advertising field, I retired early and am pursing my passion for art.

Art is in my DNA (my father is an artist). In the past, I’ve made jewelry and hand-made cards that were sold on Rodeo Drive in California and high-end gift shops nationwide. Today, I work in watercolor, acrylic, Chinese ink, and mixed media.

  1. Hi Friend
    I hope you are having a great holiday with family and friends. Do you not have comments turned on for your post on purpose? You’re missing out on so much feedback I encourage you to turn comments on unless you have them turned off on purpose. I absolutely love the boat/marina piece. It looks so large! I’m reflagging to my Art site it has to be shared with people who appreciate art. Take care.


    1. OMG, thank you, my dear! I am a lazy blogger. I forgot to turn on comments. It IS large. I have to measure it. It’s going in our living room, to replace a dreary, dark sunset (artwork my sweetie bought online without me). Thanks for reblogging! Have a happy New Year and hope your holidays were special.

    2. Oh oh, I reposted with today’s date – did it disappear from your blog? If so, please forgive me, I am feeling a little exhausted today and not totally with it! Your blog looks amazing, by the way.

      1. It’s good to have a habit like this! 😉
        When I’m not at school and doing the interior work, then I usually sew and make jewelry at home. a lot to myself and then it’s good to have such a hobby.

        Right now I’m making my own collection of clothes and accessories for myself. The theme has something about winter, royal and a little typical Norwegian adventure.

  6. HI, Thank you for visiting my page. We seem to have a lot in common in the painting and photography area..possible cooking (I used to do much more when my children were young) but not so much in the writing department. 😉
    I am looking forward to seeing your work, so far I really like your color palette, it is deliciously engaging, soft and pastel-like yet bright and flowery.


  7. Keep painting & practicing every day. Watch demonstrations of excellent painters. Watch how they apply brush strokes. They make every stroke count. I often look at the masters…John Singer Sargent’s watercolors are amazing! Good luck with your pursuit.

  8. Good on you. Get on and explore, but get some advice – it can save a lot of time. Join an art group where there are some practitioners who will generally give you good tips and assistance. Lessons can be very expensive and can sidetrack you so are best avoided, until you have clear and specific needs.. Also develop your drawing, it is so key. Life drawing groups are great. I participate in a few and they also allow you to explore different media (again, avoid classes, but practising in a group will allow to see what others are doing and people are generous with help and advice.
