Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Title "Pick Me", Medium: Oil on Canvas, Size 16 x 20. I think the frame is going to be a very important consideration for this painting. I like the way this painting worked out. At first it was a struggle but that is good for learning. I wrote previously"As an Artist I look at the world around me in a very special and amazing way. As the song says "Everything is Beautiful", "in it's own way". Sometimes I look at things as objects but for the most part I am looking at shapes , color and Points of View. The subject is usually the last consideration. Then again there is always the exception. I saw theses Dolls sitting on a shelf at a friends store in Bristol, Pa., "Another Time Antiques" . Many time I would stop in to talk with Richard P. Vallejo (owner) and the Dolls were there staring. I photographed them many time but did nothing with them. Finally I placed them in a composition on a canvas to see how they would look. With a plane background they looked scary and not too exciting. So I added antique wall paper which sort of worked but needed to be more exact then I had planned on painting. I then saw some Art of an friend from my studio days. Aleta Cortes had published some photos of very beautiful cracked walls and other worn things and I thought it would fit perfectly. It worked fine but It needed more! Added the plant and not sure if I like it. Completed. Tell me what you think!"
