Check this painting out . . .



So, I had to create a painting that matches this bedding. Easy you think?? Wrong!? The walls are painted 2 different shades of blue, meaning that I can't use blue as a background color. But with the painting that was picked out, I need 6 colors!!! Now, the baby is a boy & I just can't justify using purple in a boy's painting, but I need colors that coordinate with each other!
Personally, I don't think orange goes very well with teal, BUT with it on the side it gives just enough color to work - especially with the bedding!! This was bought as a gift. I hope that someone gives the soon-to-be-new-mommy some of the bedding or the guests at the shower are going to wonder how in the world all these colors are going to work together!!! I'm the "queen of matching colors" and this one seems to be right on (especially the teal!!) I really like the way it turned out & I hope the new mommy does, too!! Hopefully someone will let me know how well it works!!




*** got the call immediately following the shower - the soon to be mommy LOVED it!! She said it was "perfect" - - woohoo!!! I'm always a little nervous when they are given as gifts. And as always, I totally appreciate the feedback!!

Great job! I like the orange dots. They are a complementary color to the blues and work great! Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage
