This weekend was gray and rainy so I decided to make my geisha paper dolls. The faces are images from Dover books and the costuming is made up from different papers, fabrics and findings that I have. As always I try to start out with an idea in mind but it always evolves or changes as I go along. I wonder if the way we approach our artwork is not in fact the way we approach life - do we make it up as we go along, using the materials (skills) we have available or do we follow the instructions to the letter with expectations? The older I get the more "go with the flow" route I seem to want to take, not to be bogged down with the results. When I was younger I felt the need to compete and achieve. I'm not sure my art work has gotten better with the years, its just that I seem to enjoy the results more . As they say, the fun is in the making!
