This painting is the largest in the Alice series, and so I had to take it to my friends at Pushdot here in town, where they take beautiful "captures" of all my work that's too large to scan by normal means.
I just picked it up a few days ago, and now I can show you my version of the Mad Tea Party...
Checklist for a succesful tea party:
Bubble pipe: Yes
Tiny cakes: Yes
Fancy chairs: Yes
Giant mushrooms: Yes, please!
(also useful if you run out of fancy chairs)
I really had a fun time with the miniaturized recurring characters here! Here are a few details, since it is a larger one with lots of little bits going on:
And I'm so happy about that phonograph...I've always imagined that there should be some madcap music at that crazy party. I think the mousie is playing his tiny accordion hopelessly out of sync with the record.
So excited I finally got to share this one - it looks really nice framed, so I can't wait to photograph it that way, too!
Happy Friday to you!
