I announced this over on my facebook page back in September, but I’m going to make a post over here too now that it is getting closer.  I illustrated Beatrix Potter’s “Peter Rabbit” this year and it is set to release January 16, 2018!

The book is currently available for pre-order on Amazon here!  You can also find it on the Barnes and Noble website as well.  I have already started to offer the original illustrations.  All were done on 14×18 stretched canvas in acrylic paint.  The first 3 have sold, and I will be posting more soon.  If you are interested in obtaining one, please subscribe to my Art Alerts here, as this is specifically for collectors who want to know when originals are made available.

Limited signed prints will also be made available in my etsy shop soon on select pieces.  Follow my on my facebook page or instagram to catch the news I post about the book and thanks for reading!!  -Cindy

A Tiny Taxi – Original Book Illustration + Book!

Update:  Sold!
My penny auction this week is an original painting that was specifically made for an illustration in the book “House”.  Almost all the illustrations for that book were painted on canvas as I wanted that textured look for the full color pages.  Most of the originals sold at art shows when the book was first released.  I kept “A Tiny Taxi” for my personal collection, but have decided to part with it so someone else could enjoy this fun story.  This auction includes a soft cover copy of the book which I have signed on the inside.

This auction ends:  June 10th, 2015

Now at Auction:  “A Jet Quartet”  16″ x 16″ x 1.5″ acrylic on canvas original painting.  Bidding starts at $1.00 with No Reserve.  See it on eBay

This is an original illustration from page 23 of a children’s book I illustrated titled “House”.  By itself, I think this makes for a great aviation themed room…but BONUS!  It’s also an illustration from a book.  This painting will ship with a free hardcover copy of the book (softcover copies are available through Amazon)

“A Jet Quartet” 16 x 16 x 1.5 acrylic on canavs
Original illustration from my new book “House”
This painting is featured on page 23 of the book.  Perfect for an aviation themed room, or anyone who likes the “roar” of these approaching planes.  For the story I needed to paint 4 jets, well…I saw these WWII planes that had the intake located on just the nose.  I loved them, and decided to go with something really similar and have them flying right at the viewer.  Since I don’t typically paint this type of scene, I think it is one of my favorites from the book.
