My love of nature and love of paper have influenced my love of drawing, painting and making things for as long as I can remember. For me, there is excitement in the visual pleasure I get from copying the beauty of nature. The colors. The gentleness. With my artwork, I seek to inspire and enlighten the viewer.
I told you one time, on my other blog, about these dolls that my grandmother's brother in Germany sent to me when I was a child. His name was Oswald and I have included him in several of my art pieces lately. I love these two little "twin" dolls and I guess they remind me of Heidi.
But I think my favorite was always this larger doll in the middle. She always brought Heidi to mind too. She is 6 inches long, so you see they are all small dolls, but beautiful.
I never met "Uncle Oswald", but he must have been a very very kind person to think of me. He wrote to my grandmother, who we lived with, and I still have some of his letters to her.
I knew they were something special, so I never really played with them. They look just as they did when I got them.
