I believe that art enriches and informs our lives everyday in many positive ways. Sharing those experiences, whether as an artist or as an appreciator, is part of the pleasure. I welcome your comments and hope you find something of value: a laugh, an insight, a new idea or just a happy moment. Enjoy art!

Last Sneak Peek

"Before I built a wall I'd ask to know what I was walling in or walling out."
Robert Frost, Mending Wall

"Why in our world must we use mortar?"
Fay Picardi, Dry Walling Stone

"A wall without heart(ing), or without good hearting, is not one you can trust will last
a long time."
J. Shaw-Rimmington, pres., Dry Stone Wallers Assoc., Canada

"Within a wall are all the moments that created it.  They remain there like hidden
messages slipped between the stones as they were placed."
Dan Snow, Listening to Stone

     Hearting: The title is a dry walling term which refers to the small, sharply shaped stones used to hold the larger pieces in place.  The quotations I painted go to the “heart of the matter,” asking all the questions I, too, ask when it comes to building walls in our lives.
Cindy Michaud
from "The Stones Speak" series of art and poetry


  1. I love the painting, Cindy. I am so fond of leading lines ... to infinity and beyond!

  2. Oops... didn't notice that Max snuck on when I pushed the button. He's right. It'a a great painting.


  3. I love it when Max show up! Here's a scratch behind the ears...

  4. Love the wall so colorful and interesting.

  5. This is gorgeous, Cindy!! You have so beautifully transformed the material subject to the metaphysical.
    I love the color and the way the "wall" floats. I love the title.
