Van Gogh, her kids, The Wizard of Oz, old records that need the dust blown off of them, space exploration, the weather, Bible stories and old hymns are just a few of artist Cindy Thorntoninspirations in her artworks. All of which are noticeable in her creations.. The result is a perfect combination of all while retaining the youth and vigor by using vivid rich hues in her paintings. She says..
“I enjoy photography, graphic arts, and drawing, but found the messiness of painting to be the most fun. My subjects tend to be the everyday and sometimes I like to give certain objects a bit of personality. If I had to sum up what my art is about, I would say it’s art dedicated to the young at heart. “
