Confessions


Misty Mawn is asking for confessions of silly or maybe stupid things you have done. So here's mine. Saturday morning I impulsively picked up my camera and started taking photos of my porcelain dolls. I use to make them. The jester was my last sculpture and I only made one doll from the mold. So anyway, as you can see, I posed him sitting with legs hanging out.











Here is the stupid confession. When I finished I turned and walked away and shut the door as I left the cabinet. I heard a crack and I could not believe what I knew I had just done. A leg crushed! You can't see it because he has stockings on. That was just the beginning of a day full of stupid mishaps. I haven't been ready to do dolls in a long time. I don't know. I guess I must repair him. You know, nothing happens before it is time. I don't remember that I ever gave him a name but the lady behind him is Editha Achsah.
