Queen Of Hearts One of a Kind Folk Art Creation On Etsy

                 SOLD- Thank You Bernita in Arizona!

Happy New Year! This lady was created by me and has been a part of my personal collection. I have decided to part with her just in time for Valentines . What a saucy character she is with her pouty pompous expression.  I created her from a Gourd and paper clay in 2010. She is artist signed and dated by me with a 1/1 indicating she is a one of a kind and will not be recreated. She was hand painted and  holds a heart shaped sign bearing the words of Emily Dickinson. "All I know of love, is that love is all there is". The Queen carries a bouquet of pink roses, chocolates and perfume. A swarvoski crystal is embedded in her crown.
She measures 10" tall by 6 1/2" across. 
Several layers of polyurethane has been applied for protection. She has been aged with umber washes and paint splattering.
She would make a lovely presentation for Valentines Day, Alice in wonderland or  decor for any time of year.If you are interested in purchasing the Queen you can see more pictures and check her out on my ETSY
