Easter Window Painting

Happy Easter everyone! In honor of Easter I present to you this series of window paintings I painted for Mayberry Sporting Goods & Fountain. This is the second job I have done for this company as I had designed a logo for them earlier. Please see this listing under the "logo" category.

The above drawing is the sketch I first created to act as a base for the finished paintings. 

It was very enjoyable to paint on a window since the paint could easily be wiped off and replaced and I had fun with the large scale surface area.

I used inspiration from two of my card designs for this project. (See if you can find which paintings -- the card designs are shown below.)
