new painting: alice and the white rabbit

alice_tag_800

I made this last week, but finally got a chance to post it! I’ve been so busy preparing for Patchwork Show! Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite stories (and I love children’s literature oh-so-much). I recently made a custom Lost Boys painting for my friend Courtney, and I loved the style used for it, so I decided to expand that idea for other literature-inspired pieces. (that means more to come!)

I made up this scene that doesn’t exist in the book, but the quote is from the book. I love this quote so so much, it almost makes me cry. I imagine Alice and the White Rabbit having tea together and discussing life :)

It’s watercolor and ink, 8×10, and the writing is done in stamps and calligraphy. I loved blending all these different elements that I love to work with, and I’m really happy with how it came out! It’s funny how I notice my style ever-evolving; I sometimes worry about my portfolio not being cohesive, but because I love each piece and all of them have similar wistfulness, I don’t focus on the worry so much!

I’ll add prints of this to my Etsy shop next month, but first I’ll be selling prints of it at Patchwork show in just over 2 weeks! Come see me there if you live in the Southern California area :)
