Welcome to my Studio – I hope you enjoy your visit!
"Mariners" Watercolor on cotton rough. If you're in Paris from Feb 12-16 you can see it during the Art Capital Exhibition at the Grand Palais, in the @eureka.artists stand. ?? So happy that you so enjoyed the previous process video post, even though it was sped up 4x! I have more full sheet pieces to share soon ????
This piece is flying off to Paris soon for an exhibition at the historic Grand Palais with @eureka.artists ?? I'll post the finished piece next post. ?? "After all" by Geographer
I can't thank you all enough for the generous donations, thoughts, and love for Australia with what we're going through with the bushfires. I hope you've been able to download my Koala painting from my website or Facebook Group, a small token of my appreciation. From all who donated, one winner was chosen at random. Congratulations to Kaye Baillie for helping out our wildlife in their time of need ?? ????. This photo reposted from @animalsaustralia : "See that little round butt half way down the tree? This koala managed to survive the fires that have decamated his home. He is now surrounded by kilometres of dead, burnt trees and no water. ?? This is why vets and their teams are out putting 'bouquets' of leaves in trees and fixing water stations... for the survivors. It's sights like these that vets and rescue teams long to see — this is what hope looks like. This is why we must keep doing what we are doing, for as long as it takes. Today, we sent another plane-load of food into Mallacoota. Tomorrow, we will meet to discuss ongoing needs and priorities. For now, please know that amidst all the despair that there stories of survival and hope. The survivors out there need us to keep moving forward, to keep hoping. We won't give up on them. ??" . . . . #australiaonfire #prayforaustralia #australiaisburning #australiafires #australianbushfiresdisaster #australiabushfire #australiaisburning #bushfirecrisisaustralia #climatecrisis #climateemergency
**Your link to download my free painting** The bushfire crisis is far from over. But I am heartened by the strength and resolve of all who are battling to protect, save, and comfort. True heroes all. I resisted for many years, but I finally joined Twitter to take part in the inspirational #AuthorsForFiries movement, another place where you can be in the running for my original painting, which ends 11pm Eastern Australian time tonight. I even revisited my website, sadly neglected since 2019, so I can make this print available for all who donated. Thank you, you gorgeous generous people! For those who would still like to help, there is a direct "Donate now" buttton to wildlife rescue on my video post from a few days ago. To be in the running to win the original painting, just leave your name on any of my Koala posts, on any of my channels. ??????

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has donated to help those devastated by these horrific bushfires ???? If I could give you all an original painting I would! However, I can do the next best thing, and gift you all a digital download of this piece, so that you may print it anyway you like. I've just set up a Facebook Group called "Cindy Lane Art Downloads" where you can access this high res print. Click "Files" on the left bar. Please use it for your personal use only, no commercial use. ??The images in this post show the dedication of those helping in this disaster. @animalrescuecraftguild are looking for those who are craftily inclined to help make/sew/knit/crochet the items they need for injured animals (see image and their site for patterns) ???? @portmacquariekoalahospital was on the telly this morning showing all their koalas receiving the best of care ??, and @wireswildliferescue is doing an incredible job, stating on their website that an estimated 800 million animals have been affected????????????????. Thank you all so much for helping!????
Here is that burnt gum leaf from the bushfires transformed. I am offering this original painting in a random draw to anyone helping out with a bushfire donation. There are so many places you can offer your donations, but my heart is with @wireswildliferescue - there's a direct link on my Facebook page. I will be posting more places you can help on my next post, plus more details on this giveaway. Many thanks to @artspectrum. who are doing their bit to help victims of these horrendous fires - they have more details on how to help on their account. It's their Australian watercolors used in this piece, with rainwater I collected over winter. Thanks also to @kai_engel for his beautiful music in this video, aptly named "Crying Earth" ??Thank you all so much for your heartfelt replies to my previous post. Emotions are running high, with so much raw grief and sadness around the country. So glad you are thinking of us ????????
