Mr. Sun

My two year old is crazy about the song Mr.Sun Mr.Sun golden Mr.Sun……… any time we are reading a book, watching videos whenever the sun makes an appearance she shouts out look look its Mr.Sun. I on the other hand am on a folk art painting spree. So putting both of our interests together I found the perfect thing to put on her shirt. Yes of course it was Mr.Sun but in the Madhubani style. Madhubani is a folk painting style from the northern region of India. It is a very ancient form of art and uses a lot of natural elements in it’s paintings like the sun, the moon, fish, flowers. Sometimes it was also used to document weddings, birth announcements and other celebrations. Here is the madhubani shirt or as my little one says Mr. Sun shirt.
