“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. See it on etsy
I have a new children’s book out! My husband wrote the story, I painted the pictures. I paint lots of little houses in my paintings. So we decided to take one of those houses and build a story around him….we named him “House” lol. Anyhow, here is the official description of the book along with some photos I took of the proof I was sent. The paperback is just now showing up on Amazon. Hardbacks will be available shortly (middle of May, maybe sooner).
Book Description: Artist Cindy Thornton is known for her whimsical landscapes and imaginative storybook-style illustrations. Her vibrant, colorful art is showcased in House, a picture book for all ages that brings to life one of her favorite subjects. The curious title character has many unexpected adventures when he decides to leave the comfort of his simple hill and explore the unknown world below. He swims with sharks, flies with jets, plans a mission to outer space, and eventually discovers what is truly important to him.
