This painting is underway and nearing completion. I have collected dolls for years and these are some of my favorites, from Jamaica, Charleston, and Lady's Island, SC. The one on far right is contemporary. The other two are antiques. I have more that are very unique, and handmade but unfortunately I don't know much about who made them or exactly where they actually came from. Just that to me they are works of art, an expression of women who sewed, just as quilts are. I was looking at Picasso's and Romare Bearden's "Three Musicians," for inspiration too.
