New Huge Original Alice / Van Eyck Painting, eBay SALE, Last Chance Mad Hatter..... [Jan. 17th, 2011|10:32 pm]

Hi everyone!

I've got my best painting ever, finally finished, and ready to show you! Tied at the largest size, and the new record for the amount of TIME spend on one painting, lol, this really is a special painting - "Alice in a Van Eyck Portrait" - inspired by the 1434 Arnolfini Wedding - huge & framed and ready to hang, I love it. Posters & Prints are up of her too. In addition (other Alice news) - the LAST - #25 - of my "Alice and the Mad Hatter" Hand Embellished Canvas prints is up for auction - if you ever wanted a canvas of Alice and the Mad Hatter, this is your last chance. Next up new eBay SALE prints (for the next week ONLY) - "Divine Hand," "Speak No Evil," "Cambrian Mermaid," "Silver Eyed Wolf," "Alice and the Bosch Monsters," "Two Cute Dragonlings," "Les Vampires: Les Crânes," "Anise and Artemisia," and many more prints only $9.99.

First, the new original painting! My best yet! "Alice in a Van Eyck Portrait" is the title - this is my favourite Alice in Wonderland paintings I've done yet, and is probably the best painting I've done so far. HUGE at 42"x31" in size in a gorgeous ornate antiqued frame, it truly looks like a museum piece. Currently the record breaker on the longest time spent on one piece (72 hours over 4 days)! This is the sixth painting in my sub-series called "Alice in Other Lands" which are paintings featuring Alice in a variety of unusual circumstances, thrown into settings inspired by my love of art history (be sure to check out the others in my gallery). Here we have my Alice on the set of another one of the most beautiful and famous paintings in the world - "The Arnolfini Portrait" from the distant year 1434 by Jan van Eyck. This is of course my version, painted completely from scratch & by hand (lol, I'm proud!). In my painting, Alice is playing the part of the bride, and my "Alchemist" character (he reoccurs in a lot of my paintings and always wears the Plague Doctor mask, which I thought was appropriate to the time period!). There are other hints of Alice, from her blue dress to the mushrooms hidden throughout the piece, but as usual my favourite part is the unabashedly grinning Cheshire Cat who has replaced van Eyck's original doggie. I saw the original Arnolfini portrait during my first visit to London the National Gallery and it was so beautiful I just started crying, it is a very important piece to me. Celebrating my loves of Alice in Wonderland and gothic/renaissance art - no reason why the two shouldn't go together! I've always thought that Alice's adventures should continue into many other bizarre tales, and you can expect to see more from me in the future. This is my own original acrylic painting, completely painted by hand on a wood/masonite panel. This painting is available at a fixed price in my eBay store where it will remain until purchased - otherwise it will be touring with me to my various upcoming shows this spring. So if you want it, make it yours. You can see it below :
