Taking Pride In Your Work

Seeing this doll makes me think about my own workmanship in making my art. I want the creations I make to be something that will have staying power 100 years from now. Now to discover what that means. :-) It means to get my body down to my workroom.

The doll above was made sometime in the 19th century, and was one of the items sold by Skinner at the Richard Wright doll auction. Over 100 years later she is still an impressive folk art creation - whoever made this doll took pride in their work. Isn't she great? And doesn't she look like she has a story to tell?

I love the "LinkWithin" thing at the bottom of your blog. It keeps surprising me with wonderful posts--like this--I haven't seen yet.

This doll IS a fine work of folk art. She is eye-catching!
