Oakley’s ‘Under the Sea’ Room
A few weeks before I was due to have Capri another mom from Cedi’s daycare asked me to paint an ‘Under the Sea’ mural in her son Oakley’s room. Oakley is a very smart little boy and he LOVES sharks and sea animals. I went over, took a look at the room and made a plan in my head. Of course I would do it! My mother-in-law had to come with me the first time to help get the images on the wall…I draw them on small pieces of paper and then project them onto the wall. I couldn’t go super high since my stomach was HUGE and balance was a little off.
The whale in the picture to the right was my first inspiration for this room. He wanted whales and sharks and I thought it would be fun to have a rather larger whale coming out of the door. That way it wouldn’t take up the entire room but wouldn’t look strange having just a partial image…
