Moons and Stars for baby

This mural was designed by a sweet lady that’s due with her first baby in June.  It’s so fun to see all the baby stuff and share her excitement.  What a real blessing.

The wall above the changing table has a moon and jumping cow.  The wall with the crib has the sleeping moon and baby in a blanket that matches the nursery bedding.  I especially like the yawning star.  We scattered stars throughout the room and clouds to fill in the walls and ceiling.  What you can’t see is that the clouds above the crib are shaped like a bunny, a dolphin, and a bird.   How cute.

Above the window is “Twinkle Twinkie Little Star”, because that’s what she sings to the baby.   How very sweet is that?                     One of my favorite things to paint is a nursery.

This is a picture of my sketch before I begin to paint.  You may not be able to see it, but I’ve sketched out the moon and stars with chalk.  I like using chalk or artist charcoal because it easily wipes off of the wall and won’t leave a mark like a pencil will.

    Really Sweet. Nice job Jame. Was the wall already painted blue? It’s a good choice. Soothing. Some people tend to overdue when picking baby blue but this shade (at least in the photo) is real soft. Love the hats on the Moon Men.

    Thanks cutie. They chose the blue and painted themselves. It’s a perfect color and it was eggshell which is nice to work on. I like your new avitar btw.

    Brings back memories of the classic Pooh around Joseph’s crib. I have pic’s of it and it brings back happy baby memories. My regret I didn’t have you do it on portable canvas so I could have taken it with me when we moved, but somehow I don’t think he would appreciate having Christopher Robin and friends looking down on his bed now.
