Evan Painting

I just finished a painting for sweet little baby, Evan.  I never get to do enough paintings for boys rooms and I went all out with a train and airplane.  It takes me a day or so to come up with the composition of the painting in my head and then sketch it out on paper.  Then I sketch it on to a canvas.  I primarily use the 11 x 14 size canvas because they are easier for me to ship.  Once the sketch is complete I can begin to paint with acrylics.  Sometimes I can actually get it all painted in one sitting, but for the most part I have to break it up over a few days since the kids keep me on my toes all day.


  1. This one is great Nikki! I love the design.

  2. Thanks Annie. I like the way it turned out.
