New Children’s Book Just Released!


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.

How High the Moon – Now in print

I am a soon-to-be aunt of twins, so I painted this for them 🙂  Many of my paintings have little songs that go wtih them and this is one of them.  With it’s jazz standard title, I suppose one might find it also to be a romantic setting too.  Either way, if you are looking for something for the nursery or for your sweetie, I’ve made this available in a small print size on imagekind.  Thanks for looking!

Every so often I break away from my colorful landscapes and paint something nostalgic.  This toy horse came from my old box of 70’s toys.   Click the painting to view the listing on etsy.
