My brother and sister-in-law said they almost bought a doll for me in South Hill. Since I had looked for a used, slightly abused doll for several years without mentioning it to anyone, I got in the car and headed east to South Hill. For $5 I got my doll with clumpy, greenish hair.
She has inspired three drawings--Pull the Chain, pencil & ink, 16x12, was the first and is my favorite. Browsing through the workshop for a vertical to add to the right side of the drawing, I spied a leftover pull chain--perfect--it provided a title. The doll will be moved from the workshop to the bedroom, but she'll be placed so she can't be seen from the bed.
