And, that’s it. Jazz: Part IV

I know, the finished thing doesn’t necessarily look much different from the last post.  But, I assure you it is….or perhaps a discerning eye can see the subtle changes that finally brought it all together for me.

back to the future

ah…Barbie.  She’s so fun to place in impossible situations…or the future.  She’s plastic.  She’ll survive.  But, the question here is does she have the staying power of say, a marble statue of Apollo Belvedere.  It’s really the same theme.  Guess I’m not done yet….definitely not done with Barbie here–it’s a work in progress.
