Who really stole the Queen of Hearts tarts? I suspect the naughty Alice might have been a wee bit guilty. She’d nibbled on so many exotic and hallucinogenic substances by then, she was guaranteed to have the munchies by the time she found them… Meanwhile the caterpillar – purveyor of sagely advice quietly pleads ignorance, puffing away on its hookah – another dubious tart if ever I saw one! I can’t help but sympathise with the raging Queen of Hearts.
This is the final in a series of four commissions for George – all based on Alice in Wonderland. Commencing with Croquet and Tears, followed by Down the Rabbit Holeand Storm in a Teapot. George supplied the beautiful mirror frames. A little bit of tarnishing and wear added atmosphere to the theme.
The mirror was carefully masked before being airbrushed with acrylic ink, followed by enamel brush details.
