Meet my latest Esty purchase. Alice in Wonderland by Fee Harding of Burntfeather. I'm a bit fixated on this artwork, which I purchased as an ACEO. Alice, like a lot of Fee's work, is brooding and maybe a little melancholy, and a welcome departure from the sugary (yet often adorable) images I see around the nets.
When I first read 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' by Lewis Carroll, I was about 11 years old, and even then I was struck by the delirious out-of-control-ness of the situation Alice found herself in, and the deep sense of being adrift in a strange world. I think Fee has captured some of this, and if you'd like to see more I recommend checking out Burntfeather.
