Meet Etsy Artist: exquisitecanvas

Thankfully the talented Cindy Conners recently broke her 25 year hiatus from painting and has since created a myriad of ethereal Asian inspired pieces. Now she paints every weekend and in the evenings as a hobby. "I'm finding that painting has been a great way to escape the stresses of my job during the day," she confesses. Like me, she is inspired by the arts and people of the Far East - and shares my infatuation with Buddhas. Her paintings are deeply textured and often incorporate pearl pigments or gold and copper leafing, which creates a mesmerizing effect. She found out about Etsy from a fellow artist and soon sold one of her favorite paintings in her first shop, which was dedicated to fine silver jewelry ( Please visit her shops:
