Today was the baby shower for Bambino Nerino , a gorgeous baby boy belonging to my friends and co workers Christie and Michael Nerino. This little guy is so adorable and beautiful I just can't stop looking at him when I'm around him! I wasn't very good at sharing him with others at the shower either....sorry! I'm such a baby hog!
Anyway! I really wanted to make something special for him and his parents and decided last night at around 8 pm what I needed to do. When I create a painting or piece of jewelry for someone I love adding a personal detail that makes it a true original , something they will never get anywhere else. I remembered that Christie had always called Michael her " little bird" when she spoke about him and so I decided those words would be main theme of the painting . Once I decided the theme, the rest just poured out of me and it all came together. Here is the painting I created especially for baby Michael and I know with his parents love, he will grow wings to fly like the little bird he is. xo
