This second piece speaks to the brief rivalry between Marthe de Meligny and Renee Monchaty over Pierre Bonnard. Based on the painting, "jeunes femmes au jardin," this diorama depicts the battle between the women over their lover, depicted here as a pathetic dog. It is a tragedy that the loser in this ménage took her own life. It was a time when the only desired option was to marry the man. it was that, or back to black.
Created a window diorama last night just in time for Independence Day. Much time was spent looking for material. Sadly paper dolls made six years ago had faded. I had forgotten how time-consuming it is to fasten all the body parts (I like articulated limbs) and then to cut out the clothing. I particularly love Uncle Sam figures. Paired him with my one faded Betsy Ross doll. Hung the window close to midnight. In the morning I washed the windows and voila!
