This is a new photography project that I'm working on. I love to overlap my sensibilities and mediums, sometimes I use the same title for an assemblage jar and a painting, though they may be two very separate works. There is a connection of sensibilities in my mind, a thread of ideas that branches from painting to photography to assemblage work.
I work with very old porcelain dolls from Germany in my assemblage work, and they are so pretty I just had to photograph them. These images are the beginning of a new series I think I'm going to fall in love with....When I am finished photographing them, they will move to a new life as an assemblage project.
One of the things I love about these figurines is the Greek statue quality, so elegant and serene.

|6 Vintage Vixens|
These works are all fairly small, 4x5 inches or less. They are framed with vintage frames that I've collected over the past year (I have quite a collection!)I'm always on the hunt and it sure gives me a good excuse to go thrifting! I love these old frames...I love to imagine what other images they've held in the past,and whose mantels they have graced. Now I can give them a new life as holders for my Vintage Vixens! These works are inspired by French New Wave, American TV shows from the 1960's like Bewitched, The Avengers and James Bond movies.
I use pen and ink, watercolor and cuttings from vintage French Dictionaries ranging from 1911-1950.
I hope you enjoy these works!

We went to our local park, Madera, yesterday evening so he could practice shooting hoops. He loves it!
