I decided that I wanted to do a cherry blossom belly on a whim and Hyarthyr volunteered! Luckily it is one of her favorite flowers. I wanted ones that looked reminiscent of the Japanese cherry blossom watercolors and have a touch of fun. the outside is based on cherry blossom tattoos.
In an effort to do more advertising I made a sample for Bee Mine Too boutique in Richland, MI. It’s me at 39 weeks (the day before I was induced in to labor). I did the outside with traditional sailor tattoos. I love tattoos, and recently I have really gotten in to the Sailor Jerry style tattoo. They remind me of my husband. The pin up is the one on my husband's arm. Since he is still deployed at this time I did a sunset with a silhouette of his ship heading out across the Atlantic.
You can see this painting in person at the Bee Mine Too Children’s Consignment 8080 N 32nd Street Richland, MI 49083
