Two favorite Stuffed Animals (with turtles!!)

A Grandmother’s gifts to her grandchildren!  Two favorite ‘Stuffies’, a warthog and a donkey,  will now always be preserved for these two children.  This subject of this commission  was another first for me, but since I love painting texture it was right up my alley!! They are painted on wooden plaques 9″ X 12″ each.

And the two little turtles are painted on small stones to fit in little hands!  I actually enjoyed painting the turtle undersides more than the tops!!

Blue Doodle Children’s Rockingchair

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.

Abstract Child’s Rocker Revisited



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???
