Undine

My newest doll is the Undine. A water elemental not dissimilar to a water nymph. She is my 3 dimensional answer to my oil painting “From the Depths”.

I started working on her about a year ago, she is by far the largest doll I have made to date and being too time consuming and physically strenuous, I put her aside. I’ve only just recently felt impelled to finish her, and the hardest part is almost behind me. Soon there will be no more dust filled lungs, bleeding fingers and broken nails, and I’ll be ready to paint her.

There is a story behind this doll, but it is better expressed when the doll is completed, so stay tuned. Until then here are some progress pictures.
