While they were pregnant with their first of three children, some good friends of mine had made a plaster cast of the mama’s belly. She was a big fan of daisies, and of the orange-and-pink color combination. After their son was born they asked me to decorate this belly casting for them to hang on their wall.
Painting a two-dimensional image on a three-dimensional surface presented challenges, but I rose to meet them, and the family was thrilled with the result. The petals around the edge I cut out of thin veneer wood.
