Blue eyes and white hair. And more skeletons.
It is a challenge to think of names for all the ladies! Tattooed lady #4 sounds pretty boring.
I gave her big fancy hair,
and a pretty flat chest because we love all kinds of bodies, right?!
I like this toile. It is the perfect scale for these ladies.
It’s been a week since I got back from Northampton and I am working on dolls but also doing things that I’d postponed until after the show. And Fall chores, mostly garden related. So, my time in the studio is less than usual but I will be back to full steam soon.
Here is the first piece I’ve finished-
She has Christmas skeleton tattoos.
A side view so you can see her curves.
And a little dark brown glass, 3-hole button on her belt.
Here she is- last one finished before I headed out. More skeleton tattoos!
See you next week!
I am busy, busy, busy getting ready for the show. I love having a deadline- it is very inspiring!
Another lady with her Day of the Dead skeleton tattoos and flowers in her hair.
I like how the bra fabric is cross-hatched and it matches the drawing on the tattoos.
She has a skull button too.
She has silk ribbon “flowers” in her hair, skeleton tattoos, and a skull button on her belt.
I got my first Covid vaccine today and I am so happy! What a relief.
She was one of the first that I got started on but then I got distracted! All the dolls are whispering, Me Next!
This is a beautiful toile with lots of leafy plants. I gave her an antique button with a flower on it. I hope you can see.
And a close-up of her hair-
I bet she is cold! I sure am :-)
Snow Crone is what she is to me- icy stars in her white hair. She can be someone else to you. That is the way I think about it.
She has stars in her hair and one on her belt.
After no ladies for so long, now I’m up to #7 of this batch and more to come!
She has fancy embroidered hair.
And a little brass bow that I found many years ago in a bead shop in NYC.
All the ladies are going into my Etsy shop as I finish them. She will be there by this evening.
