I have painted many child's rockers over the years. I have clients that come to me...usually grandparents and some parents and I basically do an interview about the child the rocker will be given to. They give me some idea of what they are looking for and I ask about the personality of the child. I then go to work. Some are more elaborate than others mostly because some clients have a very limited budget and others let me have free rein. I must say, the ones that "let me do my thing" are the ones that turn out the best.
This rocker was provided to me as a stained child's rocker. I was given free rein on this one and it's one of my very favorite. This grandma has three granddaughters that would share this.
This next rocker was painted for parents that the Mom was a school teacher and the theme in the baby room was animals.
