Just finished framing this new painting for a little baby girl named Riley. Girls are so easy to paint for…..pinks and greens plus a birdie and some polka dots. I love all things girly. There are lots of little goodies in the painting if you look closely: Flower-shaped buttons, rhinestones, butterfly buttons with hand-stitched bodies and antennae. The mother I made this for received the painting as a gift at a baby shower. The bedding in her nursery is white with pink, brown, green polka dots and has some stripes in the same colors. Take a look at the Katie Bedding Collection from Pottery Barn Kids. Every time I paint one of these little nursery paintings I realize just how much I love to make things that I hope will make others feel happy.
“Twinkle twinkle little boy……how you fill my heart with joy!” Just finished this painting for my friend’s baby boy. I don’t get a lot of boy requests for paintings so I am excited to finish another one. This one is a surprise gift so I hope it matches her nursery! I love all the different blues and I added my favorite “moon man” by Shel Silverstein. The frame was chosen to match a pewter crib. I had to cut the mat by hand….maybe I’ll invest in a mat cutter one day but right now I don’t have room for it!
