I've been making dolls and doing drawings for quite some time. I started dabbling in painting a few years ago, but I have to admit painting is more difficult for me than sculpting and drawing.
I started out doing cloth dolls (a lot of them were Disney characters, plus some old Hollywood stars; unfortunately, not very many of my cloth dolls have survived). They were usually fourteen inches tall. I then moved on to miniature wooden peg dolls (mostly movie stars from older films, plus a few efforts at original characters in period garb). I ultimately took up making polymer clay dolls out of Super Sculpey. My early efforts were mediocre and of course most of those projects were junked. My main subject for dolls has been old Hollywood, but I've been branching out into characters from stage musicals (Phantom and Les Miz) and I've also done a few commissions (Hellraiser and some original characters).
I actually did way more drawing (usually with colored pencils and ink pens) before I started making dolls. Drawing has kind of fallen by the wayside as I've devoted more time to dolls in recent years.
I took up painting several years ago. I like to work with acrylic paint on canvas and I have also painted T-shirts and a couple of pairs of shoes. It can take a long time to complete a painting (mostly it has to do with getting things to look right, not the actual application of paint) and I've sometimes abandoned projects if they seemed too drawn out. I don't mind taking a month to make a doll, but when a canvas lingers uncompleted for several months, I think that it's a sign to move on. However, t-shirt painting goes fairly quickly for me.

I liked the movie "Diary of a Chambermaid" when I saw it a decade ago.  It is somewhat forgotten today, but it had an interesting ambiance of early Third Republic France (circa 1880).  Thanks for doing the model of Judith Anderson's character.

You're welcome!  Yes, "Chambermaid" is an interesting yet underrated movie.  The costumes were based upon the clothes worn by subjects in Impressionist paintings; I've been able to figure out some of the works that inspired the designers (just recently came across the piece that may have served as the source of Anderson's dress-might be a Renoir; will have to check).

It would not surprise me if the clothing was suggested by figures in impressionist paintings, as the film's director was Jean Renoir, son of the impressionist master Pierre Renoir.  I once read that Renoir was at a dinner in Holywood (where he lived during World War II - he was not popular in Vichy France due to his film "The Rules of the Game"), and seated next to Eric Von Stroheim.  Although he was basically an actor now, and had been Col. Von Rauffenstein in "Le Grande Illusion" by Renoir, Von Stroheim was a highly regarded film director from the 1920s.  Renoir asked Von Stroheim what novel he would film if he were directing now.  Von Stroheim answered, "The Diary of a Chambermaid".  So that is supposedly what led Renoir to that story.
