***NEW PAINTING**: Safari Friends Painting For Lauren & Ben Todd, by artist Whitney Madison
I recently finished these (4) 12"X12" paintings for my friends, Lauren & Ben Todd. They are expecting a baby any day now, and these paintings will be for Baby Noah's "Tiddliwinks Safari Friends" themed nursery.
This is a picture I found online of what the little nursery critters looked like. The print on this fitted sheet was the inspiration for the animals.
Each painting is on a 12"X12" stretched canvas that includes my signature, handcrafted frame. The painting is done in a matte finish acrylic paint, and coated with a high gloss glaze. Grosgrain polka dot ribbon lines the interior perimeter of each frame, and the corners are embellished with opalescent khaki buttons.
Each of the paintings is texturized in my signature style, and they literally "pop" right off the canvas and are tempting and fun to touch. High gloss glaze gives a glass-like appearance, and seals the painting for protection.
