Sara Beth and Merrideth
These two ladies have been in the works for some time, this painting of a Queen Anne Doll "Sara Beth" based on 19th century Colonial Folk Art and "Merrideth" in a gown of gold. This enchanting little lady is dressed in a copy of an original gown of the 19th century she has a pretty rose printed calico panniered skirt and a vintage crocheted lace trim on her gown. Her hair is of ebony black with little sausage curls on the side and she is wearing her favorite ruby pendant necklace. In the theme of Valentines Sara holds a pretty handmade heart for her secret love. The background is painted a pretty Dove Grey that shows well with "Sara Beth". I painted this doll in the early portrait style so that it will go nicely with primitive, country and romantic decor. She is the first doll in a series of Dove Grey Early Dolls that I am working on. Thank you for stopping by.
