Look how cute she is! So what I did was go to a thrift store and find something to be inspired by. I chose this China Doll Bowl Doll thing because she is sort of already my style. She is a cute little doll. And a bowl too, how functional. I immediately started sketching.
So many different ways I could go with this, which is what makes Thrift Store Art so fun. Instead of staring at a white page here you have a place to start. I imagined lots of girls with different personalities.
And while the China Doll Bowl Girl is extremely happy, my girls weren't. They were kind of sullen. And I imagined a world where maybe the little China Doll Girl wasn't very happy but always had to pretend to be. I didn't want to do that to my girls so I let them be sad.

This is the rescue in San Diego where I got Finney. Susan does it out of her house and gives her life into saving dogs. Help her out in any way that you can. If it wasn't for her getting him out of the kill shelter and taking him to the doctor I never would have gotten the chance to
get to know his precious life.
