Genesis of A Single Creation


A couple of years ago
my daughters and I decided to do
the arts and crafts show at
the State Fair.

10 days...from 9 am until 9 pm...except on the last day...
we closed at 6 pm...
anyway...

we decided to bring..
paintings
prints
postcards
small items
and
Art Dolls.

We wanted something that 'fit' into the crafts portion
of the 'Arts and Crafts' show...
I decided to do some 'goth' dolls and some fairytale dolls.

Needless to say..the fairytale dolls were most popular at a State Fair...
when the show ended and I went to do something with the photos I'd taken...
I liked the doll faces enough
they inspired me to create some original digital art creations
based on JUST the faces from my dolls.

The above photo is a good example of the
'Genesis' of a Single Creation...
my 'Alice in Wonderland' doll
became the girl in my
'All in the Moment' print
the girl from that print became...
'Steampunk Alchemy'.

You'll note that I use only a handful of the same girls over
and over...I like to be consistent I guess...
but then, we all wear 'different hats' from time to time...
don't we?
