Frog Mural Update

Nine years ago I painted a mural for a brand new baby boy. The theme was “Traveling Frogs,” or “Frogs Around The World,” or something like that. I painted the continents of the earth around the room on all the walls and placed frogs in various places doing relevant things in stereotypical attire.¬†Well, that baby is a big boy now, has moved upstairs to a new room and his little sister has inherited the room and the frog mural. But, alas, most of the frogs were boy frogs. I needed to add some girl frogs. What’s the difference between a cartoon boy frog and a cartoon girl frog? Mostly eyelashes and lipstick. And, oh yeah, some kind of fairy frog was required.

This sketch was done for friends who wanted to give it to their friend. I had to use a little imagination since the horse was actually on the other side of the fence.
