I recently collaborated with a group of amazing artists to put together this Babushka doll based on the “Old Woman and the Fly”. The babushka was a gift for a lucky new baby that was born to one of the members of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Karen Blair.
The ever thoughtful Briony Stewart conceived of and coordinated the project as well as painting the Old Lady and the Fly dolls. Samantha Hughes, James Foley, Frané Lessac and Shannon Melville all painted other animals in preparation of their consumption. My own contribution was the turquoise cow.
