Doodle Rocking Chair in Blue

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.

Wisteria and Frogs Bathroom

This bathroom evolved over time with multiple projects.   Purple Wisteria hangs over a custom cut mirror.  Later on, the stone arch was added so as to merge the mural into the  wall when the bathroom was repainted a pale yellow.  A Trompe L’oeil Wisteria blossom ‘sits’ on a bench which was painted the same lavender as  the vanity.  Tiles were painted with a special paint that bakes in an ordinary oven.  Since this type of paint is more limiting I chose to do the Water Lilies, frogs and dragonflies in a style inspired by Japanese brushwork.
