Wizard of Oz is a timeless classic and its magic transcends the generations. I am especially pleased to be able to create this alternate version to celebrate the movie's 75th anniversary this year.

The doll used is a 15 1/2 inch doll by Robert Tonner. Full facial repaint and shading as well as hair style make over to replicate the features of the young Judy Garland in her iconic portrayal of Dorothy. This version replicates Dorothy's Emerald City hair style.

The inset photo on the bottom show the mass produced version of the doll as it was originally released.

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

Do you sometimes make dolls of people you don't like, so you can torture them later on? ;)
