Down the Rabbit Hole!



The Art Dolls Only Group's 2nd Annual Blog Challenge! This year's theme is Wonderland, so I just had to "jump" right in on this one. Better yet it was open to the public!

So many decisions! Which Alice In Wonderland to choose from? The classics? Disney? Tim Burton? I do love Tim Burton! That's one decision down...now which character to choose? Oh my. Alice of course! Of course? Tsk tsk. Poor poor Alice, I had the best intentions for you my dear, really I did! 

But *someTHING* or should I say *someONE* kept distracting me! A purrr here, and a chuckle there...I swear it feels like someone is watching me...

Someone peering at me from the shadows, with a big toothy grin!




A Cheshire grin! Ohhh he's so sneaky...


Here he is with his reference photo behind him.




He insisted on having his picture taken outside. "No no...too close.." he says to me. "Back up a bit". And you know of course he didn't warn me of the very deep rabbit hole directly behind me...and down I fell.

Please join me in visiting all the wonderful artists on the ADO Blog event!

  18. *Beaming* Thank you all so much! I'm giddy from all of your comments and seeing so many artists I've admired so long! Jasperandblue- the first pic is what *would* have been Alice with yarn hair and blue dress fabric but I couldn't get Cheshire out of my head ha! He's acrylic on muslin fabric.
