A Classic Jungle Story

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a soon-to-be-Mommy in Houston looking for some art in a particular shade of blue. She sent me a link to her bedding, but I was worried that I wouldn't match the colors correctly without a color swatch. She ended up mailing me a pillow, which was perfect. The fabric that looks white in the picture is actually a very light blue with a star pattern in it.

As for the paintings, she was pretty open to anything. She suggested sports or vehicles but the bedding was so old fashioned/classic that I wanted to go with sometime traditional. I came up with these 3 classic jungle designs:

I pulled the Tiffany blue, chocolate brown and light light blue out and matched the stripes, polka dots and stars found in the fabric. I have to say they look much better in person - sometimes it is so hard to capture the design in a photograph. Maybe I need a new camera - or some photography skills! My favorite is the elephants and luckily I am working on another elephant piece right now so I get to use the design again!

This set was done on (3) 16x20" canvases and was $75. They are designed to hang together, but could be split up into 2 together and 1 somewhere else. The design is classic and timeless and I hope they enjoy them for years to come!
