finally it is done



So, every time one of my kids or my nieces or nephews turns 1, I paint a little rocking chair for them. Well, my creative juices were running low when my daughter turned 1. I had started painting, but hated where it was going. I gave it to her 1/4 finished, and she was happy with it, but I never finished it, so when she had her 2nd birthday I thought I would try again. I usually never have this problem, but here I was again, no idea what to do and tried anyway and it became more hideous. With current events around here as they are, I have recently had a lot of time to just sit and sit and sit and sit...so, a coat of kilz will cover anything and back to the drawing board this rocker went...so here is my latest painted rocker for my daughter's 1st birthday, who is now 2 yrs and 2 months old...but it is done and I think it is so freakin' cute.
