Mad Tea Party 2020

Revisiting a drawing from 2018,
Johnny Depp's portrayal of the
Mad Hatter...

I've always wanted to have a Mad Tea Party!
With mismatched cups, tea, cakes and cookies.
And maybe some art projects too.

My drawing after Sir John Tenniel's
original illustration of the Mad Hatter.

Perhaps we should just not invite the
Queen of Hearts. She seems a bit

Hopefully we can avoid any swimming 

and the wild  mushrooms will be tasty,
but not hallucinogenic in any way.

We can finish off with some tarts!
Would you like strawberry or cherry?

And of course, there must be tea!
Linking up with 'Tea for Tuesday'
blog party over at Altered Book Lover.
Stop by for a chat.

Pandemic Pages and Projects

The Hobonichi Challenge for April is
an Alice in Wonderland theme. Above,
white roses painted red, and the White Rabbit.

Some mail art postcards

and a bunny for Easter on an envelope.

A very three dimensional Easter card, hand
delivered to the In-Laws.  Haven't been to visit 
my own parents yet as they are isolating.  Hoping
the weather will warm up soon so we can go
over and sit in lawn chairs in the yard to
visit with them!

There are so many cute memes on the 
internet, and I just have to steal one
sometimes. 'Steal like an artist' as they say.

Sketched daffodils from my yard for a
card to send.

I really adore the original illustrations for Alice 
in Wonderland done by Sir John Tenniel.  But 
of course Disney's versions are pretty amazing too!

Did you spot the coffee cups that I include on my
pages?  They are my contribution to 'T for Tuesday'
over at Altered Book Lover's blog. It's always 
nice to share tea, coffee, and some conversation
with good friends!

Above, a few text pages that I've watercolored and
drawn on.  I will probably tear them up and
use for collage.  What creative projects 
have you been working on?
