Beaded Art Dolls Global Warming Challenge

This was a challenge suggested by Robin Atkins, to create dolls that would help counteract the effects of Global Warming. The challenge runs until the end of September, and so far we have two completed dolls. Pictures of the completed dolls can be seen at Beaded Art Dolls yahoo group. The link for the group is at bottom right of my blog.

My contribution is Sylph, which is a doll form received in a swap on BAD. It was a very unusual form, in that there were no arms, but that made it perfect for a happy, clear air spirit. I am using spirals done in clear, crisp colors, to indicate the clean air that would result from having better pollution controls on the paper plants, the coal-fired electric plants, and other industries that continue to find ways to thwart the need of cleaning their mess. We in Western NC have very high asthma in children, dying hemlocks and other trees, and a nice yellow smog in the Great Smoky Mountains, due to the industries over the line in TN.

If cremation facilities can clean their air, so can these companies.
If they do, we will have Sylph, flying high and smiling, as she spreads clean air for all of us to breathe and enjoy.

Do click on each picture to bring it to its full size.
And do consider joining us at Beaded Art Dolls...

I love what you done on your doll, but I still think the arms are where you put the legs. lol The ability to use creative license in a doll is what makes beading dolls so great. Congrats! Aryd'ell and I really can't wait to see her finished.
