So, a friend saw the first one and asked me to paint a
for her little girl to be born soon.
It was such joy (for me) to paint the angel (or cherub).
I loved working with those colors and painting the little girl in a heart of roses.
And, I loved painting the flowers and decorating each hobby horse.
The bottom of this carousel, I drew and painted in a harlequin pattern and gently faux painted the harlequin and the bottom of the wall.
More hobby horses.
More artwork at the top of the carousel.
Painting this room was really fun for me because big sister (to-be) who was around three or four stayed in there and played while I was painting. She was fun to talk to.
Again on this nursery, everything was my freehand artwork except the hobby horses, rope poles and the fleur de lis stencils at the top of the carousel.
I drew the pattern for the horses so they would all be the same and I do have the pattern for this horse for sale in my
just in case you would like to have one.
You could draw this horse on fabric or on a wall and it doesn't have to be a carousel horse.
It would be really nice as a bulletin board or a chalkboard. Paint a fence in front of it and a field and flowers behind it and that would be so nice, too. Or, on a garden shed.
