I recently had the pleasure of painting a nursery mural with aCentral Parktheme. It's a little different for me. My client wanted a loose feel overall with some actual landmarks and a nod to the famous mural by Ludwig Bemelmans, in the aptly named, Bemelmans Barat the Carlyle Hotel.
We chose to paint two walls in the room. The longer wall includes the Carousel, Bethesda Fountain and Terrace Arch Bridge, skyline and of course, snack tables. The celebrated zoo is painted behind the crib, across from a nice large window.
I like the mix of clothed cartoon-like animals at work or play with the more natural ones resting and roaming the grounds :)
Safety first! guess the babies should be in helmets, too. hmmm
Here, a sweet tiger talks to a blue bird. Placed just above the crib, he's an important element, because their young son was bornYear of the Tiger :)
Badgers have to stay fit, too.
Cat-itude. Why is it so hard just to buy a treat?
Looking for mom...
I like walking!
Thanks for taking a look at my latest custom mural. I'm happy with the way it turned out and I couldn't have asked for a nicer couple with whom to work. They have one of the cutest baby boys I've ever seen, plus they printed out some of my reference for me. Can't beat that :)
It's almost the weekend... have a fun one!! xo, Allyn

Inspired by animals in costume, this print, Animal Parade is from an original watercolor. This is also available to purchase onEtsy. Same size and mat as above.
I painted my Halloween themed door forIf I Were A Toystore yesterday. It's definitely one of my favorites.I love seeing my friends' kids and those from the neighborhood walking Carroll Gardens for treats.
