I am so proud of this picture!!!!!!!  I have seen almost the same theme at various museums I have visited and just knew I could paint one of my own!!!!!!!!! (more exclamation points!!!!!!!)

Below is what I used for inspiration (sort of)--notice the subtle change of texture and color--brilliant!


Actually, this is for a dear friend of mine who is having a baby boy...I called the painting "A Study in Blue"--when he grows up, he will definitely appreciate it much more!  For now, do you think his parents will like it?

Oh, I forgot that they got an ultrasound and found out that what was suppose to be the boy part was really a twisted toe in the wrong place, so now they are having a girl!!  I renamed the painting to "A Study in Pink"... they might have a hard time explaining that , but I think it will be a funny story to tell!! Cheesy 

I can't wait to give it to them this wekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here it is! C&C welcome!

I have seen art like this for sale for thousands of dollars. Lucky friend!

You really got that color on there well. I love the irony of the title. Let us know how your friend likes it!

I just had a thought. Some people may not get the humor in calling this "A study in Pink" when it's actually blue. What if you added a small pink square in the corner, so it really would have the pink in there somewhere.

Or does that ruin the whole mood of the piece?

Hmmm. You COULD try painting a little piece of paper pink and just laying it on there to see how it "feels". Couldn't hurt...


In any case, I think it's awesome!

I definitely will!   One question -- what brand paint did you use?  It has impeccable coverage.

You must get the best quality paint to do something like this...I used Delta acrylic paint, which is about $.99 a bottle!!
