PHILOSOPHY ART DOLLS
TWO WISE GALS
TWO WISE GALS
"Electric Lady" and "The Soul Becomes Dyed"
These two paper art dolls are sisters at heart. On the left, Electric Lady stands poised as though she could conquer any universe on hand. On the right “The Soul becomes dyed with the color of it’s thoughts” also has a look of confidence. These two sisters of philosophy have much in common. They both seem to soar, They both have positive stories.
She is charged with cosmic consciousness. She is a luminous being…finally free from all material longings…free to enjoy the ethereal music of the spheres..free to drink from the springs of peace and become one with the infinite…free to forever explore eternity..
Think about the power of the “soul” quote by Marcus Arelius. We, each and every one of us, have the power to shape and color our world by our very thoughts. I do believe this is true. There is a website called tut. Powerful positive messages are given each day. I subscribed to the site and even though I sometimes find them over the top a bit, the premise of the daily messages is that “thoughts become things, choose the good ones.” Don’t ever underestimate the power of positive thoughts.

I created each of the sisters by drawing a flowing dress pattern for them. They look as though they are floating across the universe. On Electric lady, I used an old beaded bag I had stowed away for future use. I never would have suspected that Electric Lady was it’s destination. Her hair, which is worsted yarn, also has beads. I sculpted her face with paper clay and painted with acrylics.
"The Soul Becomes Dyed..."
“Soul” has benefited with the leftover batik material I had on hand and used for another doll. I added silk ribbons to give her a look of fluidity. Fanciful yarn adorns her original sculpted head.

Both gals are for sale and priced at $38. each. I arrived at prices for my newly created series by testing them on my Farmer’s Market where I sell each Saturday here in Roanoke, Va. They are selling well at this price. (One lady even gave me a tip and said they were priced to low!!)
Let me know if you are interested in purchasing either of them. Just e-mail me to finalize sale. I accept all credit cards, MC AX, Visa and Discover. I take checks as well. I will ship to anywhere in the world. Shipping should be pretty inexpensive since they are made of primarily of paper and fairly light.
Thank you for reading and for your consideration.
