#64 Russian Doll

This is a Matryoshka or Russian Doll, I have painted the very smallest doll that fits inside all the others. An interesting painting challenge this, painting a painted object. This was borrowed from my friend Sandra who collects them, thank you! Oil on gesso 16cm x 12cm click here to bid.

I think your collection is inspirational and very collectable. I'm just waiting for something to tickle my fancy and then to ebay I shall go.
