“Shy Little Siren”

Now Available:  “Shy Little Siren” 16′ x 20″ x 3/4″ acrylic on stretched canvas original painting. For some reason, I don’t seem to paint “green” paintings that often.  Well, this one is filled with the green underwater wavy grass and as you can see, a shy mermaid.  This piece has a lot of movement and flow.  The stalks of grass, the rising bubbles, and the mermaid hair all lend themselves to motion.  This piece could almost fit into my girls series titled “Beauty of Imagination” as she is a girl with her face hidden (a lot of her is hidden).  But I’m keeping her categorized in my Seafarers series as it’s a water piece with a lot of mystery.  To see more info and detailed pics, she is currently available in my etsy shop here. 1blogsiren
Want a limited edition print instead??  I’ve got a short edition of 10 over on etsy!  -Cindy

Mini Paintings

Three little mini paintings up for grabs tonight.  I’m in the process of painting a bunch of tiny landscapes to bring with me to the Acworth Art Fest in April.  I’ve pulled 3 of them and just posted them on etsy.  These little canvases weigh only 1oz, so feel free to add a little magnet to the back if you want!  Enjoy – Cindy

 

“Cloud 9” – Now Available in Print

Ok, so I’m finally done with 15 paintings for Taipei.  I had to take a photo of myself with each painting for the show (lol, don’t worry, I won’t post each one).  After I sent all my photos, I got an e-mail back stating that they wanted a bunch more.  20 more.  Oh my goodness, what else will these girls be up to I wonder?  Honestly, I have not a clue as I type this…but sketching will begin next week.  Unfortunately this means, no new originals will be posted in my online art shop for quite a while.  So Sorry 😦

Soooooo, I will be working on getting signed limited editions released this week.  All signed prints will be limited to 20 in each edition.  I will also be making these available in poster prints for those who want something larger…but they won’t be signed or made by me.  All of my limited editions are printed on 8×10 size paper.

So here is a picture of the original painting that I’ve titled “Cloud 9”.  The original will be on exhibit at X-Power Gallery in Taipei, Taiwan in early 2012.  Signed prints can be purchased  here, and posters can be purchasedhere.  Watch my facebook wall to catch the rest of the prints over the next few days….

House Builds a Rocketship

Just posted on etsy!  This painting is from page 26 from my new book just released last month “House“.  If you don’t yet have a copy of the book and are following my page illustration releases, are you getting that my husband and I went with “imagination” as the theme of this book 🙂  I love a good adventure, but have it be about a house why don’t ya!  lol.

Ok, so this is my 4yo favorite part of the book…the rocketship.  I almost hate to part with this painting, as I love the rocket against the techno pop pink sky.  It’s been hanging in my office for a month or so, but I’m willing to let it go.  Perhaps more space adventure paintings will come out in the future.

YouTube Video: Cindy Paints “By My Side”

So this is my first painting video. I edited it to the ludicrous speed setting (ha ha) so instead of having to sit here for an hour, you only have to have 3.5 minutes of patience. I’m new to video editing, so hopefully these will only get better with time. A special thanks to my husband Bob for letting me use one of his recordings!!

Title piece: By My Side
16″ x 20″ acrylic on canvas
