This week’s penny auction is now live! Update: Sold!
Starting something new this week and this is the first one 🙂 “Portraits” will be a new series where homes will be featured in character though out the year. My favorite of all favorite fairytales….this themed piece is the wicked queen out looking for Snow White. The dwarves warned Snow not to talk to strangers, but it looks like it is too late! This piece titled”Take A Bite” is an original acrylic on gesso board painting. It measures 8″ x 10″ and is signed on the front, and also titled, signed, and dated on the back. This piece ships in a complimentary quality black wood frame.
Several have requested that I do another boat painting, so here you go!. This little clipper ship has made an appearance in several paintings. Sometimes it has been at sea, other times the ship has been flying in the sky. This time it’s a little of both. Peter Pan’s song “You Can Fly” says this in one of the verses “Take the path that moonbeams fly…” That’s what this ship is doing I suppose….sailing on colorful moonbeams 🙂 This canvas painting ships mounted on 1.5″ wooden stretcher bars with edges painted black.
New print available from Cindy Thornton Art! 10 signed limited editions are now available either through etsy or eBay.
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 🙂
