The count down has begun - In exactly 9 days the New
Alice in Wonderland
Disney movie will be released. I will be in Vegas, celebrating our very good friends 50th birthday and what does he want to do?
See Alice in Wonderland!
I have been busy creating little one of a kind pieces to commemorate the occasion. I love the wonderful original artwork from John Tennial that so many of us grew up with. When I revisited the images I decided to leave them the way they were, black and white and just add pops of color like red and green.
“dioramas in a teacup”
begin to take on lives of their own and come together quickly as my imagination takes control.
They seem to speak to me, “create, create CREATE!”
I toss and I turn yet rest never finds me. Only visions of tea parties and curious conversations.
I must stop!
I must get some rest -
Yet I can not.
Just one more thing –
one last party hat, PLEASE!
Now I can close my eyes and the sleep that so elusively escaped me finally succumbs to my weary eyes. As they close I feel my mind wandering to that place again, the place where the line between reality and fantasy fades.
A faint voice becomes audible –
"But I don't want to go among mad people,"
"Oh, you can't help that, "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?"
"You must be or you wouldn't have come here."
I was lucky enough to have my pieces selected by Kelly Moore of “Moore to Life” for her “How to Throw a Wonderland Party” segment on King 5 last Saturday – She will be featuring them again this Friday. Hopefully I will have a link to the segment soon.
She did post some great photos on her blog, click here to view them.
Good bye for now – I am off to Portland for some much needed rest and relaxation with some of my Bible Study girlfriends – they can be wild!
