Celebratory Obama Inauguration Dolls by Shana Barry
Folks, Shana Barry, a Canadian artist, contacted me recently to show me her Obama Inauguration dolls. I just had to post this. From her blog she writes:
"These one-of-a-kind dolls by Shana Barry were created in honor of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama and are ready to dance the night away at all the Inaugural balls. The nineteen-inch Michelle wears a shimmering red dress with a delicate strand of pearls. The twenty-inch President Obama dons a dashing custom tailored tuxedo. See more photos of the Obamas and more President Obama dolls, plus learn how they might dance into your life here."
Arguably these are some of the best dollmaking I have seen on the Obamas!
I am an emerging self taught doll artist who is learning how to improve my craft. I started doll making 3 years ago and stopped due to entrepreneurial pursuits. Now with the help of my mentor Francine Haskins, I am beginning the craft again with much more vigor and interest. Please share this journey with me.
