Cynthia Maria Rangaves

San Anselmo, CA

I am an oil painter, mostly landscapes and still lives. I’m inspired by Van Gogh, Cezanne, Picasso, Manet and so many more. Loose but accurate is my mantra, always exploring without expectations of the outcome.

After loving to draw, I thought that would be the end of it, but 8 years ago, while living part-time in Mexico, I took a painting class from a wonderful Canadian teacher named Donna Dixon. Donna told me about Carol Marine who helped me let go of painting too much detail, instead painting the general not the specific, shapes not things. I’ve also studied with Dennis Perrin and Tim Horn. Mostly, I just paint and paint and paint because of course, it’s about practice, not perfection. I love to paint and feel so fortunate to have the time to do what I love.
