“Bear Wants Honey”

Original Painting – eBay Auction runs: 6/12/21 – 6/19/21
Title: “Bear Wants Honey”
Size: 14×18 acrylic on cradled board

This piece is inspired from chapter 1 of A.A. Milne’s “Winnie The Pooh” book.
Why did I paint this?  Well, long story short….a publisher asked me to illustrate this book.  I read the book, created a story board, and got to work.  But something happened early in the project and they cancelled it when I was finishing up the 2nd illustration.  So no, this will not appear in a book – but I’m making it available for anyone who loves the story, or just loves little honey seeking bears.

Snow White

Update: Signed Limited Release – Sold Out
Open Edition prints are now available here
Available this April only: “Snow White” 8×10 signed print!
The original has sold. She is a fan art piece at the familiar well, but this time she is only with one bluebird. Her dress was also inspired from a limited edition 80th anniversary Snow White doll that was released in 2017. (it’s similar, not exact). She is my personal favorite Disney Princess!
This is a limited release print, meaning the signed 8×10 prints will only be available until April 30th. I’ve signed these in gold ink in the lower grass area. You can see more pics in my studio shop at http://cindythornton.bigcartel.com
(If you would like to be in-boxed when new limited prints are released, or when originals are made available, please sign up here!) -Cindy

There’s No Place Like Home Series

(Update: All 3 pieces in this post have sold)
Cute new little series called “There’s No Place Like Home” – which features my cute, sweet, sometimes suspicious, overly sassy, clever, charming little homes. I’m currently posting these in my etsy shop here, and currently all USA orders over $35 ship for free! (That’s a big savings when it comes to my original art as shipping can run from $10 – $30 depending on the size of the piece). No coupon codes needed, if the free ship promotion is running it will state that it qualifies in the listing. If you would like to keep your eye out for the perfect little house to adopt, you can sign up for my art alerts here. This list gets notified when new originals are released)

Peter Rabbit

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

International Show . New Series . And Other Art News

A.R.T. – Art Revolution Taipei 2014
As I type this, 19 of my paintings are currently en route to Taiwan.  This year I introduced a new series I call “Seafarers & Legends” which features a variety of landscapes and portraits of ocean oddities.  I am currently in the process of making signed limited editions.  These will be like the other ones I offer on the 8×10 sheets, only for this collection there will only be 10 in each edition.  I will update the blog and facebook once those start to release.  For those who prefer to collect unsigned larger open editions, that will be bit longer of a wait, but I will update once those become available 🙂

To my Taiwan collectors and anyone attending the show, here are the show details:

• VIP Preview:  7PM – 10PM, April 16, 2014 (with VIP Card presented)
• Dates & Times:  12PM ~ 8PM, April 17~20, 2014
• Venue:  Taipei World Trade Center (TWTC), Hall 3 No. 6, Songshou Rd., Taipei, Taiwan
• Organizer:  Taiwan International Contemporary Artist Association
Get ticket info here.

The association has announced that 280 artists from 48 countries will be exhibiting a total of 2000 works of art at this event!  Where can you find me?  Here is the show floor map.  My booth will be located at H17.  (Click the map to see it in detail).  Last year all my pieces sold out before the show ended, so get there early for the best selection!  To those who purchase a piece, feel free to share wall photos on my facebook page if you want 🙂  Once again, I am sorry I won’t be able to make the trip this year.  The mom of 3 kids/artist career keeps me so busy that I’ve been averaging 5 hours of sleep a night lately.  Overseas travel will just have to wait. In the mean time I’ll hold down the pillow fort located a few feet from my studio and try to get some more shut eye.
