Rowe’s earlier memories of making art included the dolls she created for the amusement of herself and her siblings. This doll is atypical, standing apart from the others seen later in the show, because of how she crocheted its body. The indigo-blue yarn and magenta fabric she chose for it matches the vibrant color schemes she favored in her later drawing.
