Recently, my paintings have been inspired by the idea of reinventing themes for nurseries or kids spaces. That’s not to say the finished pieces can only be used in those spaces. But i have been thinking a lot about how more “grown up” art can really work for kids. This piece was my take on a room with a jungle, animal, rain forest…even pirate island theme. i’d hang it over the crib as a statement piece. Wouldn’t stuffed monkeys and elephants look right at home with it? But yet, its not so obvious and literal that it couldn’t translate into other rooms of the house.
Here are some detail images of the painting:
You might remember another piece i did a couple months back, titled BALLERINA? Same idea there. A complement to a ballerina themed room, but in a subtle, abstracted way : )
