Alice in Wonderland

"Alice"  2008
Have I mentioned that I adore Alice, even though when I was little the story terrified me? See I had a book with Peter Pan on one side and when you turned it over and upside down Alice in Wonderland was on the other. I'm sure there were other book made this way but it was a bit unnerving all the same that down the rabbit hole was literally topsy turvy!
 But Alice, she was my hero! yes she cried, but she kept her wits even though the adults around here were nutty as can be! And what child can't relate to that? She was also so independent, no fairy godmother or prince for Alice. 

Oh yes I do adore the other more traditional tales with Princesses and towers, and princes *swoons* but this tale was about a real little girl, someone I might of known or been myself. 

So here I painted her feet firmly planted in Wonderland, and The Cheshire Cat is keeping a close eye on her every move, and yes thats the Queen of Hearts on the card!
Prints are available here

What a lovely Alice you've created! She is a favorite muse of mine as well.
I'm so glad you found my blog so I could find yours.

I love your Alice! It's amazing how that book still resonates for me, good to know a fellow fan. Now I have got to get an Alice doll done soon!
