A Bi-Plane for Jacob

Jacob is not due till January but his nursery is complete and waiting for his arrival. The nursery is decorated in vintage airplanes and airplane memorabilia. I added a bi-plane on the wall above his crib. The room is done in warm tones of beige, tans, browns and black. The wall is painted a warm golden tan.




When it came time to add the name to the banner flying behind the plane, Mom and Dad had not officially decided on the name. They had been toying with the name, Jacob. So unless they change their minds between now and the due date, Jacob is painted on the banner flying high above the crib.






Sunday, a ferocious watch dog (just kidding), kept me
company while I painted in Jacob's nursery. She was
fun to be with. Sunday supervised and kept a close
watch on me while painting in the baby's nursery.
I'm sure she will keep a watch over Jacob when
he takes over his nursery.




!!!!!! A REMINDER !!!!!

HOT PINK ZEBRA STRIPES, YIKES !

This girls room is done in hot pinks, zebra print
and green, black, pink and white stripes.
To accent her room,
part of the shelf has hot pink with black zebra stripes
and the sides are white with black zebra stripes.

The mirror is hot pink with black zebra stripes to match the shelf. The trash receptacle and the drawer knobs from the dresser are all done in hot pink and the knobs have the black stripes.

ODDS AND ENDS - RECENT ART PROJECTS

I haven't been painting murals lately, but I have been busy with several art projects.


This fall sign painting of Psalm 100: 4 with pumpkin motifs and in autumn colors was painted for a display at Dallas Baptist University.


I have been working on a calligraphy job of addressing 250 wedding envelopes for a wedding in January, 2008. The invitations are being mailed before Thanksgiving. This takes a steady hand and a lot of quiet uninterrupted time.



Williams Pyro Inc. of Fort Worth, Texas established a fund for injured firemen and their families several years ago. An annual chili cook-off at the Bass Pro Shop in Grapevine brings in many contributions for this important fund. This boot was a prize for the first place, Novice division in the "Stop, Drop and Roll Chili Cook-Off" I painted the hot chili motif and the lettering on the real fireman's boot.




A 6" x 6" Baby Boy Bootee

This small acrylic painting was painted for a new baby boy. To personalize the little painting, the baby's name and birth date were added.
