The little collection of Folk Art Santas that I have made over the years is very special and I enjoyed unpacking it and having it out on display this month. Over the holidays I saw a large, elaborate ceramic Santa figure. His blue and white color scheme interested me as much as anything, so I decided to translate that idea into a folk art style figure. Here is Blue Santa.
He came together quickly with weathered wood, sticks and a pair of legs I had originally made for someone else. It is so fun when something happens easily and it shows!
This is not the case with the 3 ARTiculated dolls I have been working on this fall. I resolved to finish them before the end of the year and I almost made it. But, 2 of them did not make it through the final review this morning. Lumpy legs and an awkward skirt are among the problems. I don't like it when the struggle shows, so I will struggle a little more to try to make the results look like they were easily accomplished!
I have some doll making ideas developing for 2021. Some glimmers you have seen here in my blog..
So, here we go into a happy new year. Let's get started!
