Dust Devil Assemblage


This piece originally started out with the figure mounted on the natural colored board and that was it. Place a little hook on the back and it would have been done, but this old weathered board that I purchased from a yard sale last year kept nagging at me. So I pulled it out from it's hiding place and started messing with placing stuff on it, which included the figure. Before you know it, I had something going!! There is one thing I'm trying to work out, but this will be the end result no matter how I fix the slight problem. It is hard to see in the photos, but the body on the figure is an old black wooden domino.

I've come to your blog just by chance, but your dolls remind me the work of Loc (Fernando Barredo), an artist from Toledo, Spain, though he is more tragic. I've thought his work may interest you:

By the way... your surname is spanish...
