WHITNEY HOUSTON TRIBUTE: (1963 - 2012)

---- Farewell and thank you to an artist whose music has become a soundtrack of my life in many ways.

It is with great pride that I share my latest creation - my humble tribute to "the Voice", Ms. Whitney Houston. Whitney Houston's music has touched me in more ways than any other singer/artist and I am glad that I could pay respects to this legendary artist.

Hair rework and extensive full facial makeover were needed to bring Whitney Houston's features to life on this 11 1/2 inch doll. Inset photo on the bottom shows the factory version.

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 and an even greater challenge of recreating a real person's likeness. Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

It would be better if we can see her really and honestly smile, seeing her teeth as if she was singing. I think itīs very important because she was the smile, she loved laughing. She shined with her smile.
