The theme of the Doll Show that I am going to be submitting a doll for is "Journeys through Light and Dark: Dolls as Tellers of Stories". I've been thinking about this a lot and have been trying to decide what I want to do, right now I am leaning towards a sculpture of my grandfather fishing from a pier.
I grew up on the Rehoboth Bay and have so many wonderful memories of him teaching me how to fish and taking me out onto the bay and into the ocean. The story I want to tell is of him.
We shall see how I translate my idea into reality. I have no idea if I can share the doll here before I submit it or not but I'll keep you posted.
I'm nervous about submitting my work to be juried but I need to do this. Whether or not I get accepted into the show is really irrelevant though it would be awesome to be accepted, I just need to start putting my work out there to be seen.
I'll keep you posted!
