I think these little paintings would make nice shower gifts for babies. The main reason is that art is so lasting. I am hoping that the children who receive the paintings will hold onto to these memories from childhood. I like to imagine that a little painting like this will become a treasure later in life. Maybe I am too sentimental about this. So that is why I paint things like baby dresses, baby shoes, gift boxes, rubber duckies and I hope to come up with other ideas.
It reminds me of a friend's idea of giving her granddaughter a painting every year that reflects her age. It must be getting tough now that her granddaughter is in kindergarten.
"It's a Boy"
"It's a Girl"
One more thing, I think it is a good idea to paint a subject many times because you learn something new every time, plus you are more willing to try something new each time.
Awhile ago I started a board on pinterest with other ideas for baby gifts. Click here to see it.
