Mosaic Paintings ~ Artist ~ Cynthia Amaral As a self taught artist, I find myself seeing everything in mosaic. I started painting in mosaic in 2005. With many pieces sold and ribbons won, I have decided to continue with this style till today. Even though I continue to paint in the traditional way every so often, just to have fun. This style started back in the late 1960's. Just a few men from California painted in this style up to the early 1970's, (probably because it is so time consuming). Just one large painting 4________x4________ can take up to 60 + hours. Every painting is original and no two will be a like. No tile, stone or glass is used. Never is it straight or even. This is so freeing because I can manipulate my colors, texture, sizes and over all look with a couple of layers of paint. With acrylic paint (almost) any idea can be designed to fit your style needs.
