astro paintings!

last year, i painted some custom canvases for a baby nursery that was decorated in a "robot" theme. cute, right?

a couple of months ago, the little cutie turned one, and caroline (mama) had 2 more canvases made to hang in his room with the other robot. check 'em out! :)

caroline gave me some photos to use as guidelines, but she wanted the paintings to be done in the colors of the bedroom (greys, oranges, charcoals), so that they match. i also tried to give them a vintage spin, and "dirty" 'em up a little, so that they look old.

  3. Ok, the little rivets/screws in the canvase on the left take it to the next level. You always thing of the little things. I would pay for an ounce of your creativity!

  4. So cute and cool! I'm a retro girl so this is right up my alley, so of course I'm going to love them! I have a question though, when you paint, do you free hand a lot of that or do you paint on your background and then sketch what you want on top?
