WHERE ARE THEY GOING, with their 'babes' in arms.....

with generously sized RED shopping bags provided by The American Girl Place on Fifth Avenue

'I SHOP THEREFORE I AM!' (Barbara Kruger)

Is it possible that the highly sexualized Barbie doll craze has had her day?

Replaced by these homely American dolls - MADE IN CHINA.....

A visit to the AMERICAN GIRL PLACE is what these two 11 years old girls have been saving up for - for weeks! Everything that a doll needs is here: a hair salon (the dolls have more than their fair share of hair); and a matching outfit for the little mom. It just depends on how deep her pocket is!

About Me

My photo
JANUS - looking backwards and forwards is a Janus trait - for me a way to record the "in between thought", whether in retrospect, or as a notion for the future. I make original prints, currently etchings. I sometimes write and take photographs. I am inspired by what I see and read. Although postings are chronologically recorded by date and time in this protocol, the images exhibited, often seen in different stages of production, are from another time. So, with each new posting, earlier postings can undergo revision or amplification as will be noted, or requested. The addition of a SNAPSHOTS Blog and a VIRGINIA WOOLF Blog are included because my different interests tend to influence what I do as an artist. There will be a Family Blog, too, for the same reason.
