I did not paint this doll

I did make it, though.  Fabric, stitching, and stuffing, that was all me.  I made a fleshie.

Fleshie [fl-esh-e] NOUN : An unembellished three-dimensional art media in animal or human form to be used as a basic platform or canvas for an artist's work.





And then I handed the completed and unadorned fleshie over to my girl Kristin-the-Artist and she painted him with oils and added some wings. 

Presenting, 

The Tooth Fairy (Who Watches You When You Sleep)

I think he's beautiful.  It's all the gold.  You just know where he got all his gold from.

Do you have any gold caps?

I think his red underoos are my favorite part.

I believe The Tooth Fairy (Who Watches You When You Sleep) will be putting his application in for a local adjudicated art show in a couple of months.  I have still three more fleshies out with artists that I am eagerly looking forward to seeing again and what amazing transformation they have undergone.

In the meanwhile, supplies are limited, but I do have a couple fleshies that need some creative hands to have a go.  I believe they would also serve much of your primary voodoo needs, providing you could get your hands on some fingernails or a lock of hair of your intended... just putting that out there.  Contact me if you would like some details or want to know how to get your hands on a fleshie of your very own.

Boy child's first look at art is usually from a different perspective than the artist or installer intended.  Having eyes located just four feet away from the ground helps but he also likes to have a look at the undercarriage, sides and back before asking to have his nearly seventy pound body picked up for an aerial view.  There are a quite a few assumptions built into any art show (DO NOT TOUCH, STAND BACK.)  Boy child laughs in the face of conventions.  He has a good look and knows all the angles, maybe some the artist herself didn't see.
