The Strange Garden

Here are my two newest paintings: "The Strange Garden" (above) and "The Little Dancer" (below). I am still experimenting with a little bit of mixed-media, so I made the girl's dress out of tissue paper for "The Strange Garden." I think it adds some fun texture. I also had fun making up my own unusual flower varieties :)
Today I am working on a little Queen of Hearts, which I will share with you soon. I haven't been doing the fairy tale characters as much lately, but I can't help but have a little bit of Alice fever lately! I haven't seen the movie yet, we are probably going to go this weekend. We had a fun Sunday going down to a book fair at the university and a little Irish festival by our house. I hadn't ridden my bike for a while, so I was pretty winded, even though its only about a 15-minute ride to the university :) It was good for me though! I hope you had a nice weekend and are enjoying your day. See you soon! :)
