Oil-on-Water images as children's art (4 IMG)
Jul 6, 2010

I framed some oil-on-water pictures for a show, and when an artist friend commented that they'd make wonderful art for a children's room, I started thinking.....

I'm going to a baby shower at the end of the month. The baby will be a boy, and his room is yellow with a jungle theme. So I went out and played with oil and water again yesterday. I think I'll use one of these first two as my shower gift.

But it's always a pleasant surprise to see what else turns up in these sessions. Where did the aqua and red come from? Not from the backgrounds I painted. Maybe the sun's spectrum? In any case, I'm envisioning this one hanging in my little cousin Andrew's room.

And maybe this one in even-littler cousin Robert's room.

Anyone else inspired to do this?
