KOKESHI DOLL FAMILY – These wooden dolls are hand-painted in the traditional Japanese style of Kokeshi dolls. The adult dolls are 3″ tall and the child doll is 1 3/4″ tall with an outfit made of origami paper. These dolls are available for purchase at my Etsy Shop, NancyLeeArtByTheSea:
HAPPY GIRL’S DAY! – I painted the wood Japanese Kokeshi dolls & made them origami paper clothes. The cellophane bag contains Japanese doll cookies. The fun thing about these cookies is that the doll design is on the cellophane and not on the cookies, which are really a round and oblong biscuit. I love them so much.
DAILY ART JOURNAL 2014 -End of September & Beginning of October – San Diego Autumn brings longer nights with the sun setting at 7:00 p.m. Daylight savings time must be right around the corner. Tonight the pumpkin sunset was marvelous. The harbor seals were joined by a snowy egret. Lobster fisherman are in full swing & as usual the pelicans are hitching rides while hoping for a handout. A tiny green insect found a place to sit on a geranium flower. I’m painting fairy tale fantasy birds & cutting out paper hearts for a card project. Japanese doll cookies are so funny as the biscuits inside are plain & the doll image is only on the cellophane wrapper. Still I love them.
