A New Art Doll in the Works!

The inspiration for a new art doll 
is found right here...
in these wonderful, wacky, rusty wheels 
and a well worn, vintage wood planer!
(please see the September 6th post...)
I envision a rider... 
and so a new "road trip of creativity" begins!


  1. What a beautiful little piece of machinery, can't wait to see what you come up with.

    Have a good weekend.

  2. Hi Daryl,
    I too can't wait to see what you come up with. Looks like a challenge and loads of fun to me.
    Have a great weekend!!

  3. I love the locomotion invention and can hardly wait to see who the little rider will be! Have fun creating this little person!

  4. I am sure you will make the wheels turn in your head and make a wondrous creation out of these wheels...You always think of something out of the ordinary that everyone loves. Good luck creating!
    And I am still posting for that delightful giveaway you are having!
    Cheers to both of you!

  5. I just love these machinery that reminds me of my childhood plays..
    great work.

  6. What a blessing to have such creativity.. Who what have thought wheels and a planer would have come together so well.

    Looking forward to watching your rider evolve!


  7. I can't wait to see what comes out of this!

  8. I love it already can't wait to see the "rider". What a great find.

  9. Hello, Daryle and Katie,
    Are you selling you dolls in any of the doll blog sites such as Art Dolls Only? I know they have their special Esty site for all of their artists.
    I will soon be caring for my husband's 94 year old elderly mother. Please keep me in your thoughts. I hope to create some dolls in my 'spare' time.
    Have a great day!

  10. Hello Katie and Daryle,
    this piece alone -even without a rider- is such a nice article, full of nostalgia and so nice looking. But .... with a driver it will be stunning! I just have to envision some of your existing pieces and I know it will be a true vehicle of inspiration.
