Time for Another Alice


Being part of the 'One World One Heart' giveaway (scroll below to the next post) made me see how much talent is out there! People have amazed me, and have made me so proud to be part of this group. What a great opportunity to meet new friends, and find more blogs to love!

I want to thank all the wonderful people who have entered my giveaway. I never expected so many comments, and I read every one of them. I have decided to add one more print. It will be a print of my latest painting (the one above), so there will be 3 winners instead of 2. This giveaway ends Feb 12th so there is lots of time to comment, and check out other participating blogs.
Thank you also to the followers of my blog! I love each and every one of you, and I thank you for believing in me and my work.

Right after I joined, I was inspired to create another mixed media painting on wood.
This one is titled 'Another Alice' (which I may change soon). I searched for the perfect quote from 'Alice in Wonderland' and none of them worked, or they were too long for this small piece. Finally, listening to a song called Karma Police by Radiohead, these words jumped out at me, and I thought they just might work.

What do you think? Words or no words? I wanted something a bit more than just a pretty girl.

***Just to avoid confusion, if you want to be entered in my giveaway, leave a comment on the post below this one titled 'One World One Heart Giveaway'. That is the post I will be drawing names from, not this one.... :-D

She looks like she just took a sip from the "Drink Me" bottle.

She is lovely.

I'm glad you are having such a good response from OWOH. I am too. I never would have believed I'd have over 300 comments on a blog post. NEVER!

Words or not? It is funny you ask that question, I have been asking myself this on a number of projects I am working on! We must like the words and I think it's because it explains the work maybe or gives the work more meaning. The painting is beautiful and it will stands on it's own. Decisions don't they drive you crazy!
