Sailing Baby Boy

I was asked to paint two canvas's for a yet-to-be-born baby boy. I was given a quilt purchased at Pottery Barn Kids as the inspiration and then given free reign for this project. What fun when someone lets me 'do my own thang'!

The Outcome #1

I used yellow ribbon and cording on the edge to tie in the nautical theme.

The Outcome #2
Since this is for a baby's room, I decided to keep my paintings very elementary. I had fun with this and I hope the parents love it...they are picking it up today. And they bought this chair that I painted so I think the room will really be cute.

PS: They just picked it up and love it all. Phew! You never know how it will turn out on a free reign kind of project. :)
