OOAK Repaint Kish Vinyl Doll Size 8-inches Lifelike Painted Blue Eyes New Tatum
Nancy Lee’s Note:
This autumn was the first time in two years that I had time to paint dolls.
Next I have oil paintings to create. I will not be painting more dolls, therefore, until (perhaps) summer 2017.
An heirloom for doll collectors . . . painted by Nancy Lee Moran
A beautiful sculpt, painted by a portrait artist who admires dolls, lovely clothing, lifelike painted eyes = an artistic doll!
This is the only Tatum doll that I will be offering.
Tag Along Tatum is an eight-inches, 20 centimeters, doll by Helen Kish in 2010, Limited Edition 200 for a doll convention. Nancy Lee Moran repainted her face and eyes in 2016. She has her original blond mohair wig in a bob cut with bangs. The vinyl doll has jointed shoulders, hips, and neck. In some photos Tatum wears a smocked Boneka dress and bonnet of batiste pale-blue cotton. She also wears her original dress with a ducks design on the hem, an embroidered duckling near the collar. She comes with her original Kish clothing, shoes, box, Kish COA, and my repainting certificate. The smocked dress and bonnet Boneka Company are not included in the auction.
Nancy Lee purchased Tatum on eBay for $92.00 from a seller who had displayed her in a doll cabinet out of sunlight in a smoke free home.
This Tatum doll is the same one that appears in two of Nancy Lee's artistic photos on the website Fine Art America. See Tatum with Lark Kish at the two links below.
Here is the web page that Nancy created for Tatum:

Nancy used a blush of shadow-colors in creases, dimples, and concave areas of the face. 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, inside the ears and on earlobes.
