Art for Charity – Helping Orphans

I was asked by a collector in the Netherlands if I could paint or draw some angels.  They were going to be gifts for the holiday, so they needed 5 different ones.  I had no idea what I was going to do, pretty much everything has been landscapes for the past couple of years.  I decided to play with ink, and came up with these lovely ladies 🙂  I liked them so much that I decided to put all five on to a limited edition print and create a charity listing for this holiday season.

So, right now on eBay you can snag one if you like!  It is a limited edition of 50, each signed and numbered, and they are $20 each.  100% of the proceeds will go to benefit Heart of the Bride Ministries “Now” Campaign, an organization which helps orphans in countries of great need. Print #’s will be given out in the order they are purchased, oh! and I am shipping them for FREE to anywhere in the USA.

You can also help by passing this info along or by sharing the eBay link with your friends.  We would love to be able to sell all 50 prints!

Charity Art Auction

Auction is now live on eBay!  100% of the proceeds to go to the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge of Destin, FL.

As I mention in the auction this little baby seagull is lovin’ his clean beach.  Titled “With Love” because my little bird is with a hanging heart, but also because “With Love” from you to the organization, the proceeds will help with the oil spill clean up effort.  I chose this organization because, while I currently reside in the central FL area, I am from the Emerald Coast area of Northwest Florida (Niceville to be exact).  Reports from family and friends are the oil is just now starting to hit the shoreline this week 😦

If you are unable to bid at this time, you can still help by blogging, tweeting, facebooking etc. the auction listing.
10 Day Auction.  Bidding starts at $1 (Free Shipping to USA addresses)

Come Rain or Come Shine

Original Art By Cindy Thornton

Yes, this painting was inspired from the song 🙂  So many jazz paintings are the traditional instrumentalists in a night club or on the streets of New Orleans.  Thought a jazz standard tune with a different approach would be fun…I may do more of these.

Gone with the Winds

mini art series
This month I will begin my “Gone with the Winds” mini art series.  These mixed media pieces will feature various colorful landscapes of bendy houses and breezy trees.  I may paint just 20, I may paint 100 …I’m not sure how many yet.  If you would like to try and win one, click the above image to view what I have available.

 Each piece measures a standard trading card size of 2.5″ x 3.5″.  On eBay we call them ACEO’s (Art Cards Editions & Originals) or ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards).   Some people collect them and create unique coffee table books filled with mini works from artists around the globe, and others like to frame them individually for display.
