It was all of the dots that drove me mad, but the study is a cool peek into the future of the watercolor painting that is now in the works. Part Mad Hatter, part steampunk, shaken not stirred with a heavy dose of vintage. The 45 adapter just above the gears makes me smile every time.
This is the third (or maybe 4th depending on when it formally started) installation in an Alice and Wonderland-themed sequence that will probably not end soon, but will be taking a short break after this piece for a short while.
Can’t wait to post the painting which will hopefully be ready soon.
Scroll thru my blog to see others in the sequence.
Thanks for reading!
I was at one of Louisiana’s fantastic festivals this spring where I stumbled across brilliant bunny artist Vladimir Ovtcharov of New Mexico (though not originally ;). I bought two prints and plan to buy two more before I could stop myself. He reminded me how much the SLBs love Alice and the idea of Wonderland. This piece celebrates whitman and his love of chess, mad hats and tea with golden rum. I plan to continue in this vein adding Chaz to the next one in an 11×14.
Whitman for Tea
8×10, watercolor on board, sealed with acrylic, available today!
When the caterpillar costume is taken, assume the mad hatter is gone as well and improvise.
Disappointed by the lack of variety in late date Halloween
costumes, Chaz decides to simply paint himself white and toss in a few props. Thanks, Alice.
