Holiday Giveaway Tree-o | Cynthia Elizabeth Linsenbardt

Welcome to the second day of the Holiday Giveaway series!


For three days leading up to Christmas, I’ll be featuring some amazingly talented and generous artists.
The common theme? Courage, hope, and inspiration for the upcoming year!
Each giveaway will be open for three full days, with all winners announced on Christmas Day.
I hope you enjoy these lovely artists’ creations!


Next up in our giveaway series is the lovely Cynthia Elizabeth Linsenbardt. Cynthia is a super talented artist who I discovered through Etsy and I really like her style. Cynthia creates inspirational and thought-provoking paintings and prints, as well as adorable hand-bound coloring books for kids. I love that she uses her talent to reach hearts and minds of all ages.

Although I enjoy all of her art, I am most drawn to her bird-themed paintings. I am a sucker for birds; they just hold such a sense of wonder and freedom, so beautiful and delicate yet strong and resilient. Cynthia captures this essence in paintings like this peaceful one and this one that reminds me of the calm amidst the storm. I find birds so inspirational. Much like I do poetry and quotes. So when I came across Cynthia’s painting ‘Birds in a Tree‘ that also integrates my favorite ‘hope’ quote from Emily Dickinson, I figured we must be kindred spirits or something.

print 1

In her own words, “I paint whatever I find beautiful, inspiring, and truthful. I want my art to encourage, inspire, and provoke thought. I am happiest when my work makes someone‚Äôs life a little bit better.” See? Kindred spirits. What I aspire to do in words, she aspires to do through art. (And I must say, she has succeeded.) Today, we want to join forces and send some of that inspiration over to you. I know many of us are in need of a little hope, not only during the holiday season but year round. This quote from Emily Dickinson is one of my absolute favorites:

print2“Hope is the thing with feathers
that perches on the soul
and sings the tune without the words
and never stops at all.”
