Bitty Bethany Kish as a OOAK Doll Repainted by Nancy Lee Moran
2012 Painting
Doll size 
10.5 inches
Vinyl doll, dressed as shown
The photos show her with pigtails in mohair.
She also has her original red bob wig, which is shown in two photos.

A beautiful sculpt by Helen Kish, painted by a portrait artist who admires dolls, custom clothing, painted eyes = an artistic doll!

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS WELCOME.  Please email me at nancylee@nancyleemoran.com.  I will figure out two options for the shipping price. 

The photos are of the actual doll, taken in natural daylight near a window by Nancy Lee.

She can stand and balance on her own without a doll stand. 
She can wear any size 5/6 wig.
This vinyl doll has five joints (neck, shoulders, hips).
She has violet-blue-gray eyes that compliment her dress of satin (colors of eggplant and pumpkin).   The skirt is gathered and has an asymmetrical flounce that shows the pumpkin contrast fabric. Cream tights and black patent Mary Janes complete her ensemble. The dress was a custom commission costing $80 a few years ago.
The doll has her Kish COA, my own photo-certificate, as well as extra photos.

The dolls I use were factory painted. I would never repaint a doll that the artist (Helen Kish) had painted herself, such as some of those in the Kish Signature Line. I would not paint one in a limited edition of fewer than 200 (preferably 300 or more). I consult the beautiful book I own: Helen Kish: The Artist and Her Dolls by Louise Fecher (hardcover published in 2006). I am NOT affiliated with any doll company, creator or manufacturer.

I like to paint upon the lovely contours of the doll sculpts, to give each doll her own personality. Just as artists who work on reborn baby dolls do, I used a blush of shadow-colors in creases, dimples, and concave areas of the face and hands. Variations of the cheek color are on the nose and chin, at the skin-corners of the lips, at inner corners of the eyes, along the inner edge of eyelids, in the nostrils, in the collar bone crevice, on the inner fingertips, inside the ears and on earlobes.
None of my paint pigments use lead or cadmium. While I painted this doll only for adult collectors, I wanted the paint to be safe around toddlers and babies.
