This painting has a unique story behind it, as it was the second nursery painting I created for this client. She wanted to use the same bedding as she used with her first-born daughter (owl artwork pictured at bottom) but wanted something different and personalized for the new baby girl. The challenge was keeping the same color scheme and similar patterns, but creating something completely different!
When she told me that she wanted to incorporate James 1:17, "Every good and perfect gift is from above," we found our direction...hot air balloons! The mini pennant banner served as a great way to tie in the baby's name, and on the banner floating by the balloon (bottom right) we incorporated the date of her arrival (the day was added in after the photo was taken). This was also the first (and only) painting I made where glitter was involved, as it was the perfect girly addition to the clouds.
