A man for this season
Early autumn is a particularly beautiful time here in Melbourne, apart from having given me a bout of the flu. I am working from home today, so that I can pretend to lie on the couch occasionally to rest. As you can see, that idea hasn't quite worked and I have almost finished a little autumn man. Beside him to the left you can see his inspiration: a photo of a strangely proportioned -- but incredibly appealing -- early 19th century German doll. He has inspired many, many of my little people but I think that this is the first time I have actually shown him on my blog.
