giraffe, two

This week I was working on another giraffe painting commission for a baby shower gift. I made some revisions to the last giraffe sketch I had, and like this a lot more. It has more of that cuddly baby feel, even though I liked the modern Jonathan Adler type shape I had on the last painting. This is meant to coordinate with the Carter “Tall Tales” crib bedding set. There are some felt elements sewn into the canvas, and a ribbon border attached with decorative upholstery tacks to the edges of the canvas. It’s 12×24″, varnished acrylic.

This upcoming week I’m going to switch gears and brush up on my fashion design and trend research. I’m working my way towards a potentially great job, thanks to a wonderful friend. Thanks, Kyle! Here’s hoping.
