Bathroom Shark Painting

One of my friends, Scarlett Baily, is a talented artist based in Mexico City. She is young, fun, stylish, and oh-so-cool, painting mainly caricatures of people and animals for different events and companies. Scarlett also has painted two portraits for us that are my favorite two pieces of art in our house — they make me so happy and give such a fun flair to the playroom. So when she texted me this summer that she was coming to NYC, I came up with the idea of having her paint a shark in the kids’ bathroom. You see, Cruzzie is obsessed with sharks and loves everything about them. They are his go-to stuffed animals, his favorite books.. and he can basically name every shark in existence. So I wanted something special in the kids’ bathroom to reflect his love for the animal (and yes, first child’s love is overlooked by second kid’s interests. oops). Here they are, I love the final Sharkie! It is so different, special, and unique. It brightens up the bathroom and looks fresh and young!

I told Scarlett to do whatever she wanted, and gave her the artist's liberty in picking direction and view of shark.

Isn’t it so fun??? I just love it so much. Thanks, Scarlett, for being such an artiste, a staple in our house, and a friend — we love you oh so much.

  1. WOW, SO cool! That is something he will remember forever, how his mom got a shark painted on the shower wall just for him! Also, very fun way to decorate a bathroom for children! Beautiful painting!
