These girls keep showing up in recent work and this week they are beginning to take new shape… 3-d form. I was looking through my “inspiration file” and ran across some dolls that I saw somewhere on the internet. I knew when I saw them that they would translate to the girls I have been painting. I had all the supplies necessary; purchased after the initial inspiration, and now I can include all the lovely ephemera I have been “stockpiling”. These girls are strong and confident, they are caring and nuturing too. They are inspired and inspirational…at least that is the message I want to send.
I am having a great time sketching all the possibilities, then cutting, sanding and crafting their faces and attaching their bodies together. Another list is also taking shape; names and personalities. This week I hope to get a few close to finished.
