“Down the Rabbit Hole”

Down the Rabbit Hole

eight x eleven, Arches £140 cold~pressed watercolor paper;
watercolor, gold ink, pastel & ink{alas the gold does not photograph well}

I have a “fertile” imagination.
Those fertile imaginings do not always translate into a lush, flower-filled garden however. And there is one little culprit, one guilty party {aside my laziness}.
I garden with many little creatures who like to excavate my garden almost as much as I do.
Except instead of planting flowers, they eat them.

Long ago I realized they could outsmart anything available that might deter them.
Dogs, traps, bait, gas, bombs, guns, baseball bats, herbs, stinky things, garlic, cayenne pepper, cats and people were nothing to these cunning varmints.

In my fertile imagination, an image “took root”.
I imagined their underground world they loved so well and this little painting was born.
If you can’t beat them, join them… so to speak.
A bit like planting extras for the feast of the little creatures who will surely invite themselves!

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go.   T. S. Eliot

  3. Good evening Dear Linda~

    Sorry I missed this post yesterday, but for some reason I didn’t get it on my reader. I wonder why because I’ve always gotten your post feeds without a problem.

    Anyway, I wanted to stop by and let you know that I got your question on my “Jackhammer and Bubbles” post. You only left one question that I could see, and I answered it.

    Also…this piece you created is BEYOND faaaaaaaaaabulous!!!! It’s magical and whimsical! It truly looks like Alice in Wonderland! It makes me wanna jump inside the image and find the Mad Hatter and have tea with him – HA!

    Linda, your art work always blows me away. It’s truly original and unique!

    Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend!

    (((((( You ))))))


    P.S. It’s hotter than hell here in Philly right now and for the whole weekend, which makes it feel like summer is coming, not fall. I can’t wait for the cooler weather.

  4. Hi ron…sorry i am lagging far behind lately but thank you for your comment. as always you are so very kind.

    what happened, i think, is that this published because i accidentally hit the wrong button and had to pull it to finish it. so you might not have seen it or saw it later or whatever. no problems, my friend. xxx

  5. The painting is fabulous! You’re so kind to give those nasty creatures such a wonderful imagination place to live in.
