Hey I belong to this fabulous group of artists called Cloth and Clay Dolls. All kinds of figurative works by all kinds of people. And...recently I decided to host a challenge wherein by a given date "we" those of us who decide to, create a doll based on a favorite childrens story book character. Easy enough- I chose my favorite "A Little Princess" by Francis Hodges Burnett. Nope, not so easy. Once in awhile I go completely crazy and this is one of them. I'm on #6 for doll heads. So far not one of them 'feels' like my Sara Crewe. To prove that I've really done six- here are the first five. If you'd care to vote on which one you like (but please tell me why) please do so....
Are you Sara Crewe? The famous Sara Crewe of 'A little Princess" by Francis Hodges Burnett? She must be here somewhere.
Are you Sara?
Why no, Honey, I am not. Did Sara ever have this goofy smile of joy on her pretty little face? Oh no, she is much more serious than I.
Are you Sara?
No, Sweet child, I am not Sara. I am more like that soft breeze you feel on a hot day. I am celestial and ethereal but I am not Sara.
(Ok, what-ever, Earth Goddess- Geesh!)
Who me? Heck no, I'm way too contemporary. I haven't decided if I am a hippy or a city chick but one thing is sure...I'm not sticking around some uptight school for girls! My boyfriend is picking me up on his Harley soon or I'd help you look! Good luck with that!
Are you Sara....and before you answer just know that I'm thinking of quitting art altogether and going into nursing....
You know its bad when you ask your kid to look sad while you take her picture. Thank goodness this one is a drama queen who was all in for the acting bit!
