I created this painting when I was in Art Students League in Manhattan. It was a small art school located on 57th Street & 7th Avenue. I was in between schools and loved this quaint art school. Although I remember this being an odd piece at the time during one of my critiques (only because the rest of my class mostly did landscapes). I bought these doll hands some where in China town. I'll always remember when my little sister went up to the attic and saw this piece sticking out of a box of work that I asked my parents to hold onto... and she came into the house crying. Mind you she never went into that attic again to play with her friends.
