They bought a round for the sailor
And they heard his tale
Of a world that was so far away
And a song that we'd never heard
A song of a little bird
That fell in love with a whale
He said, 'You cannot live in the ocean'
And she said to him
'You never can live in the sky'
But the ocean is filled with tears
And the sea turns into a mirror
There's a whale in the moon when it's clear
And a bird on the tide
-Lyrics from "Fish & Bird" by Tom Waits
This mixed-media illustration is created with hand-crafted mixed media art dolls and various other props that are then posed, lit, and photographed.
You can see how my mixed media art dolls are made on my YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFMoEW3xC740tWfQNSixs_Q/videos
Greetings & welcome! I make the imaginary a reality with my handmade mixed-media fantasy art dolls. With polymer clay, acrylic paint, armature wire, fabric, and other materials, along with photography, I make mixed-media dolls that have a life and personality of their own because I believe the world could use more Make Believe.
If you'd like to see my process, you can watch on my YouTube channel at www.YouTube.com/theDreamSyndicateArts where I'm posting new videos on Saturdays @ 2PM EST.
