Custom Canvas for Cole...Arty Girlz Submission for "hint of pink" the flower in the mongoose's hair and the second piece's balloon....

On Cole's First Birthday last year I started a new tradition...to create a special canvas for him on each Birthday....

The second photo below is his first Birthday canvas....I get commissioned to work on these with clients and it's fun to work on these for Cole...

This year I created a special one incorporating all of his most favorite things....

Minnie his dog, the mongoose, a monkey, cake, balloons, the monster truck he carries everywhere.... and cake of course....oh yeah and hats...he is addicted to hats...lol....

I will finish all the details of this piece and also use it in designing the Birthday invites....

If you would like to commission one of these you can see more information by clicking on the photos.........

Have a wonderful day!

Cheers,
Diana

you are such a wonderful Mom !!! what a great thing for Cole to enjoy through the years....

BTW...I have made many ACEO's in the past, actually when I first began collage work....soon I found the small size so restrictive...I guess I like to SPREAD OUT :) But you're right, they DO sell...so maybe I should pop off a few :)

Have a wonderful day, friend !!!
