FDQ Winter Issue

"Art" was the theme (unfortunately it's sold out now) so I'll post the
2 pieces I submitted.

It was a fun project. I took 2 paintings by artists I admire greatly
and posed my dolls to appear in them!

Here is Timo (bet you'd never guess!) portraying Madame Pierre Gautreau, or
"Madame X", by John Singer Sargent (1856 -1925).

And here is Annalisa (Soah) and Ava (Seola), as Mother in Child, in Gustave Klimt's
"The Three Ages of Women". "The Three Ages of Women"

Since I first started looking at pictures of dolls on the internet, these 2 have to be among the most amazing things I've ever seen. It was a real jawdropping moment when I saw them just now. Lovely, wonderful work....

Hi, Christy :)

Thank you so much for commenting on my blog and for linking me here. It means a lot!

I've been a silent lurker at your blog for awhile now, but I really must de-lurk (is that even a word??) now.

I'm always so amazed by your photos and your dolls. While I was waiting for my first doll (back in May), I think I went through your entire archives. Your pictures not only give me something to aspire too (photography-wise), but I also just enjoy looking at your dolls. You really seem to bring them to life.

And this most recent project (of posing your dolls to look like the art in paintings), is! Words just fail me (that and I'm still waking up so I'm having trouble being eloquent...heehee). One of my other favorite images that you did in a similar vein is the Bowie/Saint movie poster.

Happy Holidays!

Oh great to hear Kara, it's always inspiring to *me* that people could be inspired by my work ^^

I think your ideas are fabulous - I am so blown away by your latest IM Hound pix....I'm such a sucker for textures and you did that brilliantly, it almost looks like it's 3d texture-mapped!!
Thanks so much for visiting!!
