Alice portraits 2/3

In addition to my painting of Alice and the Gryphon, I wanted to make three small portraits for Curiouser and Curiouser, the upcoming Alice in Wonderland show at Gallery Nucleus.

I settled on portraits of Alice, the Cheshire Cat, and the Caterpillar.

Here is the Cheshire Cat, who amounts to the Cheshire "James" -- my cat.


And then for my own amusement I did a quick digital version.

Next post, Thursday : The Caterpillar

I'm adding to my standard M/W/F schedule to keep all the Alice portraits together so the Caterpillar will go up tomorrow.

"bit and run" will come Friday as usual.

Aww! Appropriately unsettling, but still kind of cuddly-looking. In contrast to Disney's Cheshire cat, which is just ugly, or Tenniel's, which is freaky. . . .
