SMALL IS THE HEART PHILOSOPHY ART DOLL

SMALL IS THE HEART THAT CAN LOVE BUT ONE
PHILOSOPHY ART DOLL

Small is the Heart...Philosophy Art Doll

This may be my favorite paper art doll so far. I was going to hold off until I purchased my new camera before I took a picture of her but couldn’t wait to show you. My old camera is simply falling apart. It is a Nikon Coolpix. I looked online and read a lot of reviews only to find that each camera seems to have a drawback. What I don’t like about the Nikon is that all of my sculptures have a squatty appearance. The paper art dolls look as though they have extremely short legs, which is not the case at all. But, the paper dolls squattiness have nothing on my tall “daughters of antiquity” series. They are tall and serene and yet look completely out of proportion. I’ve had to use a lot of editing to make them appear close to their normal size and I look forward to just getting an accurate picture in the future!

I used a beautiful batik material I found the other day along with one of my original hand sculpted faces and an embossed tattoo for this one. The saying, "Small is the heart that can love but one," is one that a customer of mine gave me one day. She said it is selfish to only have one love in your life. Our hearts are vast and have the capacity and the need to share love with many.

  4. I know she is my favorite..the colors ..the quote... Gorgeous. Say, I know what you mean about looking for a camera..and the reviews. It is very frustrating. I have a Canon powershot that I finally picked after hours of research and I loved it... But now ..I need a new one too. Ack.

  5. She is my new favorite of your dolls- her face is so wise and loving, and the colors you used are dear to my heart. Please let me know when you start selling these, I know having one in my studio area would provide daily inspiration:)
