Rebecca’s Doll Painting and Other Dolls

I did this one about 3 years ago — but it’s been at Rebecca’s for a year or so — and I forgot to take get an image of it.

The upper pigment is actually a red-violet colored quinaquidone, and the lower is indanthrone blue.  The doll is painted with the same pigments.  The feathery yarn is wool feathers, and the lace inscription (not shown) says “she fell to the earth from the cracks in the sky.” (inspired by Leonard Cohen’s line “the cracks are where the light gets in.”

"She fell to the earth through the cracks in the sky", copyright 2008 by Lynn Whitlark; quinaquidone violete and indanthrone, muslin doll, feathered yarn, brass grommets, and chrome fittings.
