Artist: Cindy Thornton

This Friday I'm featuring Cindy Thornton. Again, I found myself drawn to the bright colors and swirl motif. This first piece is called "Tiny Tuscany," from a series of paintings.

This is "The Westerlies." With its pink sky, it's like a girly version of Van Gogh's "Starry Night." I don't really like cypress trees in reality, but in art, they're very appealing.

This is Candle Flies. I don't see the candles, but it makes me think of benevolent fairies, like in Disney's movie, Sleeping Beauty.

Finally, this is "Night Lights (#7 in a series.)" I'm not crazy about the hut, but the sky is beautiful. I could see it as fabric for a pareo.

For more of her work, visit her website.

Enjoy your weekend!

Me, too. :D If I had a bachelorette pad, I might hang stuff like this on my walls, but this doesn't go with my house decor. At least I can decorate my blog with it. :D

I would LOVE to have whole walls and ceilings painted like that. Wouldn't they be fantastic murals?

That would be fun! Imagine a bed and breakfast in which each room was themed to art. One of the rooms could be like this. :D

I like her colors. Bright. Festive. Cheerful. The picture Candle Flies makes me think of Tinker Bell in Peter Pan, speaking of Disney.
