When I think of this room it makes me want to sing...
Under de sea, under de sea...

The class room that I chose to share today is at a local church
in their nursery to 5 year old wing.
The corner and cabinets are representing a sunken ship.
notice the broken mast at the side under the whale also the
Pearl of Great Price in the sand at the bottom of the ocean?
Wouldn't we all love to find on that large!

A closer look at the whale shows the water movement a bit better than the first picture. And the wonderful reef in the corner.


This full view of the corner shows how
I matched the cabinet color and worked it into the design.


A closer look at the portholes shows the fish going in and out of the ship wreck.


One of my favorite fish is the center parrot fish.
I had the joy of seeing these in person on one of our
snorkeling adventures in the Caribbean.



I loved painting the dolphins too. They always have so much character.


Painting the octopus was a challenge.
I didn't want to scare the younger children so purple was the way to go.
It really made him more fun.





NowI have to admit I can't take all the credit for these awesome rooms although I did the majority of the design and larger animals there were two other artist helping me.

Happy swimming!
