Found objects include doll parts, rubber balls, and felt stars.

The "happy" side, a close-up of the assemblage.

   The sad side, below. This was a hoot to make!
The feet of this assemblage are doll shoes!

assemblage, art doll
I blended the joint with acrylic paint so they'd match up better.

Can you think of a good title for this work?
Something about being two-faced
seems a bit too obvious to me.
Thanks for viewing this post!   




  1. Clever! A real hoot. Went looking for clown quotes since I'm not clever enough to name it myself:

    Any fool can be happy. It takes a man with real heart to make beauty out of the stuff that makes us weep.
    Clive Barker "Days of Magic, Nights of War"

    "I had rather have a fool to make me merry than experience to make me sad. " - William Shakespeare. As You Like It

    "The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool." - William Shakespeare. As You Like It

    “Laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone.” - Ella Wheeler Wilcox

    "Every human being is a clown but only few have the courage to show it." - Charlie Rivel

    Nothing quite fits... but for your next artwork:
    "Wearing underwear on the outside of your clothes can turn a tedious trip to the store for a forgotten carton of milk into an amusement park romp." - Dr. Hunter "Patch" Adams

    1. OMG you made me laugh soooo much! The last one...I'm still smiling.
      I do love the first Shakespeare quote to describe this work, and also the Wilcox fitting! Thanks, Anon.
