Ode to Waterhouse

J.W. Waterhouse is probably one of my favorite painters. This doll is called "Ode to Waterhouse" as a nod to his work "Windflowers".
"Ode to Waterhouse" is 18" tall with base included. I really enjoyed making her, especially sculpting and painting her face.
Her clothing is from bits of silk and satin, laces and bead embellishments.

She is gorgeous and I love the sense of wind blown lady that you have given to her.

I can almost feel the breeze stirring her cloak. Wonderful work! I also like how she is caught in mid step-- one heel not completely down.

Angela, Can you email me your address. There is something I want to mail you. I will remain mysterious as to what. :)

Love this doll and all your work. How do you get the clothing to stay in motion. Something I have been trying to figure out for a while.
