Works In Progress--Finished! Part I.

Last January (February?) I began work on an art doll using a cornucopia basket that I'd found at a thrift shop.  I've made a doll this way before, and it was just such a hoot, I had to do it again.

The first doll was called "Good Bones" because she made me think of those butt-ugly supermodels in Elle or Vogue...all angles and legs and big noses.  They're striking in a way, but they still make me sure that it's the 6 ft frame they're after, not necessarily the pretty face.




The second one began with the head...I'd sculpted it, and for some reason, she just seemed a little other-wordly, so I decided to just go all the way with it.  I call her Dragonfly Lady. 









Over the next few days, I'll post other finished dolls, things I've finally gotten done since I began the big push to get ready for the UFDC convention.  (See Martha?  I told you I'd post pictures.  :~)
