This child’s rocker is painted with lots of happy doodles of stars, stripes, dots, hearts and a few little flowers in shades of blues, greens, salmon and white. I painted energetic frogs leaping at dragon flies on both the front and rear backrests. Lady bugs creep along the runners. This very sturdy rocking chair stands 25″ tall and is 15″ across the backrest. The seat is wicker. It is appropriate for a girl or boy. For Sale at $125 plus shipping and handling.
This child’s rocker is based on a chair I did a number of years ago. I painted both in abstract geometric designs with bold colors; purple, teal, cream, black and gold. I even managed to include a snail and a butterfly. The style works well for either a boy or a girl. In this instance I customized the design for a particular little girl. Can you discern her name???

This charcoal-black single-seater bench is painted in Trompe L’oeil style with a collection of stones, slate, mica and natural crystal scattered on top. The bowl and the turtle are carved from stone as well. For a little something organic I painted two feathers and an autumn leaf. Of course there is a little lady bug, can you find it? If you are interested in having me paint something similar to this piece please send me an email or leave a comment.
