For a while I was using toys in little "semi still life" paintings. I'm not interested in painting them anymore, so I decided to take a photo of my collection and then put them away. One of the pinnochios is from Italy, one from the Czech Republic, and I got the red doll and camel in Egypt. It is hard to paint toys well and I was, appropriately at the time, advised not to do so.

"Carmencita Playing" by Antonio Lopez Garcia, a painting I like a lot, has toys in it. I love those little chairs and how Carmencita's back is to us, she's in her own world.
