Title: A very large commission :D
Post by: andralynn on June 29, 2016 04:08:06 PM
Recently, I was commissioned by a children's hospital to create 10 paintings of various sizes. The theme was animals playing outside. Two of the canvases were so big (four feet x five feet!) that I had a hard time taking photos of them.  :D

These are so cute!  Be sure to sign them...can you take the pictures to make them into prints?  

That would be a nice way to make them available for others to enjoy... ;).

My favorite is the large rhino blowing bubbles!

Adorable - I love them, but my favourites are the bright swinging fox, and the dogs sitting with the cat!  Wonderful for kids and adults!

I rarely use the term adorable, but these totally are. I've looked at them multiple times and have found a favorite piece from each one. They're so unique, yet are clearly in the same family. Very cheerful without screaming. I hope you did take high res photos for reproductions.

Is there a significance to the wee mouse in each of the smaller pieces?

These are so cute! I love your style and I'm sure the children at the hospital will love them .

These are so charming and fun. I know they'll be enjoyed by lots of people at the childrens' hospital! My fave is the one with the splash pool.

Every time I am looking at these, I love something different - LOVE the little bunny pulling the elephant in the cart right now.

Those are just precious! They're so whimsical and sweet. I agree: you need to get prints made!

I think the first one is very good for children...they can all reach the finish line, it says to me...I would love to have that one to give...hopefully, it will become available as a print. ;D

 These are absolutely great. You should make them into cards. So cute!!! The bunny pulling the elephant and the races are my two favorites. They are all so creative.

Absolutely wonderful! I agree. Be sure to sign them and I would get them printed up as cards and prints. It would be a wonderful thing to have the hospital gift store sell them.

Aw! Thanks everyone! I do plan to make prints (maybe not of the really big ones though...did I mention how hard it is to photograph them?  ;D) and making cards is a great idea too!

These are all so amazing and inspirational! I love the blending of colors throughout the paintings. Fantastic work.

Wonderful selection of paintings, they're sure to bring smiles to both children and parents, and when going to the hospital can often be a worrisome thing, a little visual comfort can go a long way.  I'm also most partial to the rhino blowing bubbles, but the whole menagerie is great!
