Baby Brayden's Canvas

Posted by Picasa

Way out of my comfort zone!

Alright all you boys mamas, this post is for you. ha!
I had a sweet friend ask me to do some transformers for her son's room.
When I started looking at all the detail in a transformer, I won't lie, I freaked out a little. ha!
I didn't think there was any way I could do it justice.
My husband was laughing at my lack of Transformer knowledge, but we are all girls over here.
Luckily, she ended up wanting their faces (still pretty detailed) and his name.

For those of you not well versed in your Transformer knowledge,
here are the pictures she sent me: Bumble Bee and Optimus Prime.
I had to first draw each one free hand and then paint each little detail.
It took a while and I was nervous that they would end up looking horrible,
but the time was worth it when I finished.
I can't say that they are perfect, but I think they turned out pretty well.

Tweet Dreams Little Lady

I am in love with this little canvas. I did it for a sweet little lady that is almost here.
I love the vibrant colors, the flowered branches, the sweet bird, and the cute saying.
I was pretty tempted to keep them. : )
I also did this one for her.
She wanted a sunny scene with a little girl and wanted the little girl
to have brown hair and brown eyes (like her daughter will probably have).
For some reason the pictures didn't turn out very well. I'm sorry they are so hard to see.

Sweet Birdies

I did these sweet paintings for my sister-in-law. She just had a precious baby boy (her 4th kiddo)
and he will be sharing a room with her daughter (who is probably one of the cutest girls I've ever seen!).
She wanted to have some art that would tie their separate sides of the room together, so this is what we came up with.
They also have the meanings of their names and Destin's has his bible verse on it as well.
