The original will be featured in Taipei this April (2014) at an international juried art show – Art Revolution Taipei. This piece features 3 traveling balloons only they travel beneath the water. One of them has aired to the surface….oh look at that, a sunset!  If anyone remembers Disney’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks movie, you will recall the underwater song.  As I painted this it came to mind, and then wouldn’t leave my head.  The rhythm and tune itself just lend itself to to this painting, so I titled it after the song “The Beautiful Briny Sea.  I’ll post the video below as I’m sure some of you young’ns have not had the privilege 🙂

News and New Canvas Prints

This month and for the rest of the year I am busy working on new originals for an upcoming show this spring happening in Taipei again.  This year it’s a “sea” of imagination here in the studio 🙂   Some pieces have been posted, more to come over the next few months.

I’ve also updated my website to include a few new features.
Shop and Studio View.
CindyThornton.com is now linked up to my etsy shop, so you can shop direct from my website.  The final check-out happens on etsy, but now you don’t have to go find me there.  Just click the “Store” link on my site to see what’s new.  All items that ship from my studio are on hand and typically ship out next business day.  “Studio View” is another new section where I post photos of what’s been happening in the studio.  These postings usually happen after midnight (the only time I seem to be able to get paintings done these days).  So if you want to see what’s in the works before I post them, visit that section of my site.

Lastly, I wanted to mention that I am currently offering signed canvas prints.  These are not limited editions, but I only carry them periodically so quantities are limited.  These gloss finished giclée reproductions are professionally printed on a tight weave canvas that produce a rich and clear printed image of the original .  Special ink coating is used to protect the image and also to provide the surface with fade resistance for 75+ years.   Each measures 12″ x 12″ and comes wired and ready to hang.  I sign each print on the front – and pencil sign and title the back of the canvas.  Below are the select works currently available.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!  -Cindy

Fantastic Voyage

Viewers are able to take whatever they want when they observe a painting, but I wanted share that some inspiration came from this beautiful song when it was sketched out. I decided to create this short 1 min video clip of the painting and song together. The hymn: Nearer My God To Thee, by Sarah F. Adams. While this video features only the first verse, I wanted to let you know how the the 4th verse reads:

“Or if on joyful wing
Cleaving the sky
Caught up to meet my King
Swiftly I’ll fly”

The art “Fantastic Voyage” featured in this video is a variant edition available in print online here: http://pixels.com/featured/fantastic-voyage-cindy-thornton.html

(The original version of the painting will be released at a later date and will only be available direct through me as an 8×10 limited edition. The original painting itself is slotted for a 2014 art show in Taiwan.)

More prints of new paintings will be released over the next 4 months. Watch my facebook page to catch them! -Cindy

Singapore

I am very excited to announce that Forest Rain Gallery in Singapore will be representing me in 2013.  Just yesterday I shipped out a package of original paintings to them, and should they arrive on time, they will be taking these paintings with them to Hong Kong’s Affordable Art Fair this March.  This is good news if you live in Asia, as now there were be three locations this year where you can maybe catch an original:  Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taipei this coming May.

And just in time for Valentine’s Day. ….One of the paintings I just shipped to Singapore is now available in a signed limited edition print over in my etsy shop.
