Miniature dolls house portrait of a doll

A tiny portrait of a redhaired doll with stripy top, size 6.5 x 6.5cm (2.5 x 2.5in) square. Painted in acrylics on canvas, then adhered onto sturdy mount board with a loop to hang. Finished with a lush layer of gloss varnish for added protection.
Display in your dolls house as it is, or would also look good in a small frame and displayed with a collection of other miniatures.
I bought this beautiful pink dolls house for a baby who is much too young to play with it yet. My husband is convinced I bought it for myself. Well really .... who could possibly believe that!!!!!!? (clears throat and walks off muttering.......)  
It's in one of my shops at the moment.

Had fun with this doll having a bad-hair-day.

Lovely painting! I think we all have a child inside us that still loves playing with toys :)

I agree Julia :) Playing is a necessary escape from adult realities sometimes. Whether playing with paint or dolls ... great therapy LOL!
