Two more to go…

My eyes are so going to fall out of their head! Continued work on my I know an old lady who swallowed a fly nesting dolls — from left to right (click to zoom), the spider, the bird, the cat, the dog, the goat, the cow, the horse… and… she’s dead, of course! I may get ambitious and try and finish the painting tomorrow and then give them a nice topcoat to seal and protect them.


They really look a lot better in person I think… I haven’t decided yet if these are going to be for sale…

    I was wondering if you actually had a link to where you got the blanks from.

    I love them! However, they seem backwards to me… Shouldn’t the spider be the smallest one, and inside all the other animals?

    Karin – Yes and no… No because if you’re going to use the characters to tell the story, you can do it by taking it apart layer by layer if it’s done this way.

    I know, the song’s not particularly condusive to having the horse largest inside the old lady, and the fly the smallest. Its just a really big fly, and a really little horse. :) And I in no way meant to sound critical, I do like them.
