More Alice work to share - this time, a twist on the Garden of Live Flowers.
I was really inspired by 16th century Dutch floral still lifes here (especially those ones with inky backgrounds.) I thought it would be fun to pluck the talking blooms from the garden and let them chat in this green glass bottle for a bit.
The red rose bears a passing resemblance to a certain little queenie...I think it's fun having little connecting threads between the pieces!
Alice was so astonished that she could not speak for a minute: it quite seemed to take her breath away. At length, as the Tiger-lily only went on waving about, she spoke again, in a timid voice — almost in a whisper. 'And can all the flowers talk?'
'As well as you can,' said the Tiger-lily. 'And a great deal louder.'
Happy Friday to you!
