It’s a Girl!

My best friend is having a baby girl! This is baby number two for her. When her first little one was born, I made her a baby rocking chair out of recycled window jams (last image. Their last name starts with a T and the room theme was florals and pink). So for this new baby I wanted to make her something as well! (Gotta share the love 😉 )

I asked her the theme of the nursery and my friend told me it was going to be baby animals and a neutral color palette! I was so excited because watercoloring immediately popped in my head! I had been on a kick of drawing and watercoloring elephants so I felt like this prepared me well! The tricky part was to make them cutesy and fun but still realistic. These animals were so fun to design and make! I gave them to my friend at her baby shower this weekend and she loved them! Yay! Now we are eagerly awaiting for the little one’s arrival!

Winnie the Pooh. And some Honey too. 

This is a canvas painting I did with acrylics. The process was simple. First, I looked for a quote by Winnie the Pooh that I though was indicative to his loveable character, because I wanted to make this painting for my roommate who loves Winnie the Pooh and has been a good friend. I then sketched Winnie the Pooh and his honey pot on the canvas, and then began painting! The sketch took me roughly 20 minutes and the painting took 2 hours. All of the painting was done with a small brush (you can easily find at a craft store) and the fine lines and text were done with a toothpick. 

And the huggable loveable Pooh Bear was complete. 

  

Fab Five POP Art

The Fab Five are back! Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Goofy and Donald are Walt Disney’s classic characters who were with him from the beginning. Daisy Duck joins the gang in this collection of POP Art paintings. A new medium is introduced in this artistic creation. A series of brush strokes transform a blank white canvas into an expressive illustration of Walt Disney’s Fab Five. What emotions are their expressions reflecting? Let your imagination guide you!
