Doll #4, oil on canvas

Still life


I am working on objects that I have collected, one way or another. Dolls and their relationship to actual people interest me.
This is a small oil painting of a souvenir doll from Colombo (I know because there is a tiny handwritten note attached to the doll) that I bought at an op shop in Darwin a few years ago, and my goldfish, Herbert.
