Barnabas Collins OOAK Art Doll

Good evening, 
I wanted to share my latest creation with all of you.  He was a commissioned piece for a very nice collector and the biggest fan, I know, of the show 'Dark Shadows'. 
I feel honored that he asked me to do this for him.  I was so happy that he was pleased with the end result!
Although there is a movie on the horizon with Johnny Depp playing Barnabas Collins, this was made with the original Barnabas Collins, Jonathan Frid in mind. 

In Memory of Jonathan Frid

  1. I absolutely love your Barnabas Collins doll! I was a huge fan of Dark Shadows as a child and then years later when the local PBS station ran all the reruns of the show, my 2 sons watched every episode!!

    You did a fantastic job!



I appreciate you and the thoughts that you share...
