365 Ways to Shoot a Doll : New Dress Shots

This project "365 Ways to Shoot a Doll" is meant to invoke thought, emotion and conversation. As the project moves along there will references to the abuses women and children live with and through from the hands of government, husbands, fathers etc. BUT it will also deal with the positive effects of love and respect and encouragement.

365 Ways to Shoot a Doll : New Dress Shots


Today I sketched a dress pattern for Dolly. A simple dress, hand sewn, made of cotton. I'll be altering the pattern a bit but I'm pretty happy with the results. It's been a long time since I've hand sewn a doll's dress. I would guess about twenty-five years ago. WOW!

Art Challenge : Tropics

This week's Drawing Challenge: Tropic is hosted by the clever and talented Ariane.

Being fair skinned and blue eyed I knew exactly what to do….. a self portrait showing what colour I'd be if I was dropped into any tropical area of the world. RED, RED, RED from head to toes! Click here to travel to Ariane's blog for more renditions of "TROPICS".





Have a great weekend!

Dolly was balanced on three photo boxes. She stands very well considering the bottom of one foot being mutilated by a previous owner. I edited the Shadows photos in iPhoto.
