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!
Screws lay at the feet of the vintage robot Whitman is attempting to disassemble.
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!
Latest Scary Little Bunny painting features Chaz in his lab. Guess the next piece will have to show Whitman in his study.
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.
Dirty minds and money are accepted where dirty dancing and deeds are denied.
Chaz and Whitman decide that dirty minds and money do not require a visit to the launderette, but socks just might.
(Love you Iris and Darrell.)
If at first you don’t succeed, the third time will not necessarily be charming.
Chaz continues his search for alternate energy sources.
Whitman looks for cheaper methods of travel.
Your relationship to
honey is often determined
by either sex or tea.
Thanks to Dave Horton for his hilarious contributions to the SLB’s humor.
I am always trying to find new painting styles to spice up Chaz and Whitman’s everyday life. This time I am using a Pebeo product to create dimension using a pointillist style. The black dots are actually raised giving the painting a bit of shadow and texture. The watercolor is on a porous board that I have to seal with acrylic spray. So… I may actually be complicating the creative process by trying new things, but it is kind of sassy. Don’t you think?
