Carol's Daughter & Disney's "Magical Beauty": Painting for Windows and Print.

Carol's Daughter is a burgeoning African American beauty product company featured on Oprah and endorsed by the likes of Jay-Z, Jada Pinkett and Mary J. Blidge. For the release of the new Disney movie "The Princess and the Frog," Carol's Daughter came out with a limited edition special line of children's beauty products. They commissioned an illustration of a Bayou landscape to be used on in-store signage and in advertisements. For their 5 tri-state store locations I created a special holiday window treatment which incorporated store signage while utilizing a behind-the-glass reverse paint technique. This allowed for neither passers by nor weather to distress the resulting painting. Adorning the floors inside the store were decals made of my paintings of both lilly pads and water lillies.
