During the coming two weeks my time is freed up to be able to make sketches and drawings of studies of my ethnic doll collection and textile studies. Some of the drawings will be shown here. They will be part of my exploring and inquiry to express the diversity of our world and to share the richness of humanity through art.
Over the next several weeks come here to enjoy this journey through art.
“Improvisational Queen From a Doll II”
6″ x 6″ x 1 1/2″; acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas; January 10, 2015; Diana Mae Potts
Using a doll as a stepping stone I improvised this painting. This is from the same doll that was used in the previous post. This week it seems to be all about bringing the queen out that is within.
We all have a life that we lead. Why not bring out the best in us as though we are the regents of our own lives.
“Dolls, Culture and Imagination”
I’ve designated the year 2015 to be the time I explore making drawings and paintings utilizing my doll collection and imagination.
This week one doll has created a theme of Queens. Each painting is a different take on a portrait using a doll that seems to be in aFrench maid’s uniform from one or two centuries ago.
On January 5th or 6th I made this one:
