"O' Happy Day!"


A 4" hand made watercolor paper doll of a young girl with arms in the air and legs "skipping". Something about the posture of the figure and the repeated dress images all appearing together gives this a bizarre otherworldly quality. Almost Darger-esque, especially with the watercolor treatment.

Fantastic! Is this from your collection?

Hi, sorry it took so long to get back to you. Was on a quick vacation to S.F. No, this actually isn't in my collection. It's currently on eBay and if you hurry, you can probably still bid on it and get it. I would bid myself, but would rather see you get it.

Here's the url: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=007&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=170127659969&rd=1&rd=1
