A Glimpse into the mind of Cynthia van Leeuwen

Over the years I have kept sketch books. I did not manage to save all of them but I began photographing some of the pages of a couple of them. Some of my paintings are quite personal, you will find my sketch books often even more so. This is partly why I show me getting into water in my introduction, it is like that, it feels like that, for me showing these pieces. In no particular order..
