Taking some old things apart and putting them back together. RE-ASSEMBLAGE,  if you will.
I found the round piece at the top in a trash can at the Jersey shore that was old, rusty, full of water and this bag of "We Love Brigantine" buttons, that had the amazing patina that you see here. Don't you just love when that happens?  I have used them in a number of pieces since I love it. Almost out.
Even though this glorious old doll is battered and torn, it still looks happy. perhaps because it is becoming a component in this new piece. Te two items on either side are linseed oil and turpentine cans that I found along with a well used wooden palette in a Paris flea market. Sometimes paint is superfluous.
