Abiageal's Room

Abiageal's mommy is a bit of a hippie and dreamed of a Grateful Dead room for her baby.  The room was already painted that shade of blue with blue carpet and she requested that we work with it.  We decided to inject a rainbow of colors and used the base blue as our starting point.  It was also a large room for a nursery and we thought a border was a good way to get some art all around the room.
Abiageal was already gifted a blanket with the moon art above.  We changed the colors a bit, but used that artwork as requested.   

The only other request was that we incorporate the Grateful Dead bears around the room.  You'll see them dancing around the border.

We had a fun time deciding how to incorporate Abiageal's name.  We found a website that offered "hippie fonts" and we chose one that we thought worked well for a girls room.  Plain white just wasn't enough so we incorporated a fun pattern in the letters to add some color.  And we wanted a daisy somewhere, as Abiageal's mom loves them.

A rainbow peace sign completes the room.  And the room really looks great now that it's set up with all the furniture.  They're ready for baby! 
As a special gift, Jessica created a custom book shelf for the room.  A few dancing bears on each side.

A rainbow pinwheel on the inside.

We hope Abiageal loves this room for many years.

Winchester Thurston

We were asked to add some art to a classroom at Winchester Thurston School.
We started with a tree with the Winchester Thurston bear hanging from a branch.
Detail of the bear reaching for the honey and the WT "carving" in the tree.
The we rolled paint on the kids hands and had them stamp hand prints as leaves on the tree.

Little hands and big hands, everyone got a turn.
Afterwards, we added a leaf outline to polish the finished product.
We hope the kids like our addition to their room.

Alice in Wonderland Paintings

Tifanie and Rob are expecting a baby girl soon and they decided on an Alice in Wonderland theme for her room.  They requested some paintings.  I decided to go with a vintage theme but update the colors to make it fit into a nursery.

Pittsburgh Sports Performance Center

We were commissioned to paint two logos for a local gym, Pittsburgh Sports Performance Center.
Here is the entire space with both logos.
This wall was just built at the edge of the platform and they wanted the logo painted on it.

Jessica was way more comfortable on the scaffolding than Nicole to say the least.
