These two old friends occupy the very tip top of the corner cabinet in my studio. They are leftovers (please don't tell them I called them lefovers!) from my 'art doll' days.
And then...yes back to figures. I had made an abstract picture and wondered if I could use the same shape, making a back and front to create a figure. The rest is history! I had come full circle back to 'dolls'. I'm not sure why I always gravitate to figure work but I seem to find it endlessly facscinating.
These days, my friends from long ago look down on me from their perch and wait to be introduced to the next figure that will appear from my hands. Hopefully the glittery beads, elegant faces and detailed beaded stiches won't make my old friends too envious!
