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.

You can see more inside pictures of the book herewhere you can also find direct links to Amazon if you would like to purchase a copy.  (Amazon orders will not be signed obviously).
This auction ends:  June 10th, 2015

My Love Runs Deep

Update:  Sold
“My Love Runs Deep”  10×20 original acrylic on stretched canvas painting.
One is fishing above with what I call “true love” bait, and the other is down below on the ocean floor with a protective glass bubble so it can “breathe”.  Both seem to be on a separate journey.  Has true love brought these two together?  Will they ever meet?  An epic love story for sure.
Auction Ends:  Nov. 8th 2014

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)
