The Last Two for 2011

Here are my last two dollies for the year. The are number 109 and 110. Not bad for a years worth of work. I have so many more ideas waiting to be birthed. I am so excited.

Here's Hanna and Lara. They are my large Prim Dollie design. I will probably make a couple more to make a set. They will be in the exhibition in February titled: Loved Through the Years: 100 Years of Black Dolls. More information is coming in the next couple of days.

 The pic above shows Hanna's hair. I braided strands and then attached them to her head like cornrows. To the right, they are together. Little sisters. They are my take on dolls made by slaves. I couldn't get away with the eyes. You know these are my kids because of the way I paint the eyes. They turned out better than I expected which is always a good thing. I know, I know, I'm so hard on myself. One of my goals for next year. Be a little nicer to me on the creative front.

Clothes are really different for me. These are attached but there will be dollies where you can remove their clothing. Next year. Which is the day after tomorrow. Yay!

With all good wishes to you for a
Happy New Year!
