EXPLANATION OF THE PIECE:

this past summer i was traveling down a back road in utah and saw a old baby doll sitting on the front porch of an antique store. i was drawn to her.

since i have so many old baby dolls sitting in my art studio, and little room for another, i decided to take a photograph of her so i could remember her.

she looked so lonely to me (hence the title). perhaps lonely for her "long ago" little girl owner?

when i came home i knew i wanted to make an art piece to remember her.

i "worked on" the colors of the photograph to suit the painted wood.
and here she is.....lonely.

COMMENTS MADE:

This is one of the most interesting pieces I've seen in a while!

Salute, Jennifer!!! Welcome to 2011 with your unique art works.....

haunting & moving

fantastic collection of imagery. the central doll has so much presence!

siempre me resultan inquietantes y muy enigmaticas tus obras
para ti querida

This is great, Jennifer! I really like the colors against the wood. The brightness of her clothes and the cracks in her face. Moving and hopeful.

i think that those antique dolls are totally freeked out, and have scary eyes, and i wonder that little girls didn't have horrible nightmares. !!!! really cool artwork, as always. poor little lonely doll....iris

Beautiful tribute

Yes she does look lonely, she has had a life, odd for such a young one. Beatiful artwork.
