Just stumbled upon the work of Cynthia Meyer. This is what she has to say about her work.
"As far as subject matter, what interests me most right now is the parts of California that are disappearing. Bungalow courts demolished, water tanks torn down, even the cottage down the street won’t be the same when it’s been scrubbed clean and redecorated. And good classic things, like a beloved vintage bike or a favorite pair of sneakers. I worry that all of the things that have been used and loved and lived in are going away. So I paint them."
