Abigail's picture

This is something that's been distracting me from the blogging over the past couple of months - the picture I painted for my little Niece.

Those of you familiar with Matt Sewell's work will see where the inspiration came from. I also thank Murakami for the flowers.

This became so much fun to paint that even Lizzie got involved.

Initial reports suggest Abigail is well pleased with it, which is a relief.

Apparently the house is where the owl lives.

Medium: Spray paint, paint pen, acrylic on canvas
Size: 1.1m x 90cm

  1. How lovely and kind of you to paint it for her. I would have loved a painting from my uncle when I was young.
    I am sure she will treasure it for years to come.

  2. Thanks Kimmy. Let's hope she treasures it more than the last one, which she "grew out of". Kids.

  3. It looks really cool. I wish I was able to paint something that good for my Nephew. I think kids do get to a stage when they grow out of certain things, but then when they grow up even more they appreciate them again in a different way.
