Art Dolls In Shadow Boxes
I have been thinking about creating a scene with one of my art dolls in a shadow box. I am searching for a deeper than usual shadow box so I can fit one of my tea cup ladies in there. I want to create an entire scene for each doll or maybe even incorporate two dolls in the scene. I will be painting the backdrop and building out from the back wall by adding hand sculpted props to bring the 3D painting to life. A few examples would be a tree partially painted and partially coming out with limbs hanging over the doll or part of a roof coming out over a front porch where one of my dolls will be posed. The idea came to me last night when I was driving my daughter to gymnastics. We’ll just have to see what comes of it, I hope it turns out the way I am envisioning it!
