Finally "Spring" has arrived


This is the doll I created in Denise Marie Warner's workshop a couple of weeks ago in Santa Fe, NM. She was created from paper and fabric with an armature of PVC pipe and wire. It was great fun and an amazing amount of work. She is about 22" tall and was shipped as she was too fragile and cumbersome to try to get her on the plane. I am so pleased with her and see her as part of a series of dolls on the 4 seasons. Oh geez, did I just add on to my lists of projects? Help! As a paper addict it was a blast pouring through the exotic papers Denise brought to choose a color scheme for my "Spring". So what do you think?

What a gorgeous doll, Kay!! Rich colors and just so pretty! Can she stand on her own? How will you display her?

Hi, I am just stopping by to say hello. I don't know whether it was the Ram Dass quote about God in drag, your 7 Secrets from May, the naked man in the shower drawing, or this amazing piece, but I am going to visit your blog more often!
I'm new to blogging and hope I can evolve as interestingly as you are.

Kay......Thanks for sharing, workshops are so inspiring. As far as being a paper addict, I wonder if we should develope a 12 step program Paper Addicts Anonymous (PAA). Your doll is fabulous, I can't wait to see all the seasons.
