About Cindy M. McClure

I flunked 8th grade art class so figured art wasn't my cup of tea. Then later in life I was "forced" to take private oil painting lessons, which I did for less than a year, and loved it.

I also did illustrations for concept development teams through the years as well. I now find myself yearning to be back on canvas, so I've started painting again just to get a portfolio together and to find my niche. Other than those few months of private lessons years ago (landscapes only), I too am self taught. I paint what I feel, and read about different techniques for additional inspiration.

Painted with heavy acrylics and gels for vivid texture.
