Thank you Katie Kendrick for
this delightful creation. Is it a fish?
A doll? A worm? A funky folk art doll?
No matter what
it is, I love it and I SO
appreciate Katie's thoughtfulness.
This will find a good home in
While Katie was here in Saluda she taught
a Funky Folk Art Doll workshop
which included her quick & easy
lessons on how to paint these unique faces.
Above is Meg Fowler's completed
doll, although her creation is a
not really a doll, it's Sunshine,
a local raccoon that finds
food and shelter on top of
her mountain near Saluda.
There's plenty of stories about
her raccoons that she is happy to
tell including the one about this
sad little gal that lost part of her
tail recently... poor baby.
I think that Meg made up for
that loss with the multitude
of beads and baubles that
she hand sewed on this one.
Below is Sharon Kolbye's
interpretation of the Folk Art Doll.
Sharon Kolbye attended Katie's class
class as well and completed her
blooming creation the very next day.
Really really cool Sharon.
LAST MINUTE ADDITION:
Go to Lynn Roberts' blog for
more pics & news about Katie's classes
Jean Moore of Asheville brought along
one of her sweet little paper doll creations
(Look closely, she put my name on this one)
that were published in Artful Paper Dolls.
How adorable is that? What a good
idea as a place setting for a tea party
or a bridal or baby shower.
