( unusual )

June 29, 2011


an unusual find...
picked from an old art collector, an original puppet and painting.

i chatted with the collector for a bit, to find out as much as i could about this pair.
probably from a detroit artist, done in the late 70's.
we both guessed the painting was done as a study for the puppet.

i love his surly sourpuss face.
the funny, handstitched clothing.
and the careful jointing of the knee & finishing of the feet.

art pieces are always hard for me to part with.

{ they are in the shop, here }
