**********************************************

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!

In remembrance of my dearest departed mom's birthday (she would have been 83 today).

The canvas I used for this repaint of my mom is Ashton Drake's Gene doll (shown on bottom right) because of its subtle yet versatile mold. The doll's original factory paint was completely removed and then precision repainted to replicate my mom's features. Meticulous and careful hair styling completed the doll's look.

The inset photo of her on the bottom right was used as reference.

Repaint is a new form of pop art, wherein the doll's face is treated like a three dimensional canvas, with the added challenge of painting within a very small area . Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes
