Christmas Presents

Hi. Here are two Christmas presents I made for my mom and brother. This first one was for my brother. It's called a jig doll or limberjack. It's a dancing folk art type doll. You stick a dowel rod in his back and sit him on a long board and make him dance. I think they started in Ireland and they dance an Irish Jig so they're called jig dolls there. They're also called limberjacks. You can see them in action on YouTube if you search jigdoll or limberjack. My brother bought the blank doll and I painted it.



Here's a link showing one dancing:

This painting below was for my mom. It's her dog, Tiny, wearing an Ohio State Buckeyes sweater. I included a couple pics of Tiny to show her tongue. Her tongue hangs out constantly and is that long.




I have new stuff in the works right now. I'll have some new paintings for sale in a couple days. Lots of artwork is available in my Etsy art store. My Etsy store can be found here:


Thanks for looking!
