Wonderland here we come

The idea has become a finished painting, and I am thrilled to share it with you! And now you can see why the tea was such a dead give-away! 

  "Mad Hatter and Company" 10x8


"Mad Hatter and Company" is now up for sale in the shop!

This painting is from the perspective of Alice sitting in her chair from across the table at the Mad Tea Party taking place in lovely Wonderland; where these three characters were peering back at her. From this viewpoint you can see all of the friendly camaraderie between these storybook legends. Each of them simply being themselves. A bit crazy, and all the better for it!
I have always been a helpless victim under Wonderland's spell and so it should come as no surprise that I have decided to do a series on it, which I am dubbing "Down the Rabbit Hole". It will have a few friends popping up from Looking Glass land as well, our Bad Egg (Humpty Dumpty) included, he just seemed far too lonely without a series to belong to. I am going to love this project and have already started working on the next painting idea! Also I will be posting some little Alice in Wonderland bits of interest here and there!   

 "Curiouser and curiouser!"

Happy Monday my little rabbits
