I already posted about the birth of my niece, Cassidy, however, I wanted to share some of the presents I made for her (and mom) at her baby shower a couple months ago.
Heather, Cassidy's mom loves Charley Harper's artwork and a few years ago I painted Ben something to go in his nursery along the lines of Charlie Harper's work because I was just getting out of school and pretty broke. Heather approached me this year and asked if I could do another one for Cassidy's room. So I found two smaller canvases and, after much debate, settled on a raccoon motif. Some people who know me know that I am actually scared of raccoons so this was an exercise in not dwelling on the subject matter too much for me.
Note: these are Charley Harper's designs, I just repainted them for her. I'm not claiming any originality for these bad boys.
Sorry that the lighting in these is a little wonky. I took the pictures on my iPhone in a virtually dark apartment. For a better look at coloring, etc. you can click on the link to the baby shower above and there are some pictures.
I was already in the process of planning out another gift that I've given before with some success. My friend was having a baby earlier this year so I decided to just make two sets
And, as usual, Marilyn helped me and Macey ignored us completely.
