March Give Away

Art Doll
5" x 4"
felt & hand painted face

Normally I give away an original painting each month and the mandatory entry is for you to tell me what that painting inspires in you.  This month I am going to do things a little differently!  I have just designed this new line of dolls and have decided to give one away for this months give away so since I have yet to come up with a name for these new dolls I have decided leave that task up to all of you and make it this months mandatory entry.  I already have a few different art dolls that I make and I call them Oddlings and Oddballs.  You give me a suggestion on what to call these dolls and if you are the winner, I will use your name suggestion and you will win the houndstooth doll pictured above.

22 & 23 ~ 29 Faces Challenge

Still jugging along on this challenge, I actually finished this one yesterday before the challenge ended but it was dark out so I couldn't take the photos til today.

This is my interpretation of Marie Antoinette, famous for saying "Let them eat cake"

This painting is done in acrylics on a 24" x 12" x 1.5" artists wood canvas.

Let Them Eat Cake
24" x 12" x 1.5"
acrylic on wood

Never a girl 
so pretty as she
hair in pink curls
& a bunny called Dee

So happy together
always best friends
no matter the weather
they'd play til the end

A sweet tooth she had
whipped, frosted & candy coated
it all made her glad
& sometimes even bloated

It happened one Sunday
in the morning she'd wake
they'd all hear her say
"Let them eat cake!"

Prints will be available in my Etsy Shop today, contact me at oddballart (at) hotmail (dot) com if you are interested in finding out more or purchasing the original.  Thank you for looking!
