When my pregnant friend asked me for a commission piece for her baby's new room, I was thrilled! Armed with four blank canvasses and a mosaic teddy bear for colour inspiration, I quickly got to work (her due date is early March! Hard deadlines are the best kind of motivation). It was the first time I had worked on a set of paintings before, and I quite enjoyed the process! Bouncing from canvas to canvas was good fun, and I could leave one layer alone to dry while I moved on to the next (something I have always struggled with).
As I have recently learned, newborns don't comprehend shapes and figures very well...but they find colour contrasts very attractive. Hopefully the wee babe will find comfort gazing into the light and dark shades of these pieces (and will give Mommy something nice to stare at during 4 AM feedings!).
This set is titled "New Beginnings", for obvious reasons.
