About Me

SUMMER 2023 Newsletter 

 Greetings, my dear earthling siblings! Here in Roswell, New Mexico, the full brunt of the sun's rays permeate our very beings even in the wee hours of the mornings! It's time to get your morning walks in way before the rest of the world awakens AND to make a plan to stay INdoors for the afternoons! 

That's no problem here because I have PLENTY of work to do in my studio! Along with creating 2-D art, I'm creating some 3-D sculptures which will be revealed next year hopefully and working on a line of clay products! ALSO, I've been creating blank journals with my images on them, and they are turning out very nicely! To see them,  Click here! 

This year has brought about some very profound introspection and ultimate decisions, and the time has come to put more of my energy into my Mermaid Mansion website as well. The focus there is not on 2-D art, but on the written word and the assistance of people who love to delve into the world of Water.  Mermaid Mansion showcases all of my books and will be the home of my future mermaid books and art. 

 The highlight of this summer has been the discovery of the Bottomless Lakes State Park just 20 minutes east of Roswell. Natural cenotes hold clear blue water and beckon the inner mermaid to swim there at Lea Lake, which is 90 feet deep at one point! We stay in the "swim zone" and it is 12 feet deep at most. The water is the perfect temperature and the air is so clean in this county. I'm so glad we moved here!  

Each and every day is an opportunity to create art and to appreciate the art around us. Focus on this, and you will never be bored. Have a wonderful summer and enjoy the new season to come! Every blessing! 

 Yours in heART, 


Having traveled extensively, artist Cindy Rhodes is now based in New Mexico and finds that her experiences fuel the creative process in creating her works, all of them possessing stories within every brush stroke. Since 1990, she has used colored pencils, herfirst love, both to create intricate pieces and to build the foundations for works in other mediums such as block prints and oil paintings. She is passionate about expressing the miraculous connections between every person on this planet, and she uses the design element of motion and visual reminders of unique objects in her work to transport viewers into another world deep within themselves, where they may find that something positive has sprouted.
