HAND PAINTING ARTWORK ~ A TREE, A BIRD'S NEST & BLUE SKY FOR MADDIE'S ROOM

    HAND PAINTING ARTWORK ~ A TREE, A BIRD'S NEST & BLUE SKY FOR MADDIE'S ROOM

     This is the second time I painted Maddie's bedroom.  The first time was just before she was born.  This time I think she was five.  She loved pink!  She and her mom knew the colors and artwork they wanted and how they wanted to decorate.  So, I painted her walls pink.  In one corner of her room I painted a large pink crepe myrtle tree and a bird's nest in the tree.
I painted her ceiling blue with clouds and pink sparkly birds.
   
      Over her bed I painted an arch and a big sparkly bow. 
     I painted a smaller arch over her dresser and painted sparkles on all of the artwork.
     This room was sooo cute and happy!  But, a few years later I had to paint over everything for her next, big girl room.
     Through the years I've had to paint over a lot of my artwork.  Thank goodness I take lots of pictures.  It's always fun to go back and look at older pictures.

  4. So sad when a little one outgrows the artwork in her room. I am sure the fairies are still watching over her. At least you had the photographs!

  16. That was nice. My sister and I did a tree in her family room also. We used stencils but I see that you painted freehand. Nice work. If you want to see the tree my sister and I painted with birds in it. Linda
