I soon learned that although Dianna had sculpted the original dolls and hand painted the vinyl dolls faces, there were other artists trained by Dianna, who also painted them. As I continued to search I soon found which dolls I thought I wanted to own, but it was going to take a long time to bring any of them home.
Dianna was not taking orders at the time and from all indications the wait for one of her dolls would drive me to distraction, and should one come up on her website, the price would be way beyond what I would be prepared to pay for a vinyl doll, no matter how good it was or who painted it.
I almost went ahead with this doll (a #1sculpt), but the wait was just far too long, so long in fact I figured I'd probably not be around to enjoy her.
This is another that I would have loved to bring home . . . a #2,
and this #3 one too, but alas such is life. I'll just admire them from afar and enjoy the dolls I have. :)
And for something a little different . . .
. . . here's a couple of recent arrivals in new cardigans that I knitted. :)
