My father works in Moscow, thus he travels quite a bit and through his travels our family has accumulated numerous matryoshka dolls.
One day, my mom brought home this template for me to paint while reminiscing of our time spent in Russia. It was a child's paint-by-number kit, and it came with a water color set and instructions on how to paint the dolls, which I swiftly ignored. The doll lay untouched until recently, while searching for something to do I discovered the blank template laying in a dresser drawer. I decided "What the hell, I am going to paint this the real way!"
Designs are inspired by mehndi patterns as well as by the traditional matryoshka dolls that are sold by so many talented artists throughout the country.
