"The Dolls"
painting on canvas - 8"x 10"
animal portrait

This is an image of "Missy" with some of her favorite dolls.
She started collecting them at a very early age, sometimes
finding old forgotten or broken dolls that she would take
great care to clean and repair.
By the time she reached her adulthood she had become so skilled that
she started the first doll hospital in the village Appletree Hollow.
During her later years she became famous for creating her own
beautiful and charming felt dolls.

All paintings have sides painted black and come ready to hang.

Xmas Wee Willie Winkie

"Wee Willie Winkie on Xmas Eve"
oil on canvas - 6"x8"
animal art

My version of Wee Willie Winkie with his Teddy on Xmas eve.

Did you know the origin of the Wee Willie Winkie?
The explanation of the words to Wee Willie Winkie was to teach children to associate every day tasks with their own lives. Before the days of the wireless, television and the Internet great reliance was put upon the Town Crier to pass on the latest news and information. 'Wee Willie Winkie' was the children's version of the Town Crier! The author of the poem was William Miller (1810 - 1872) and the first publication date of the words to Wee Willie Winkie was in 1841.
