Here is my latest in fantasy series of paintings. This is a tribute to a great illustrator John Tenniel. I wanted to enhance and change some of his drawings, of Alice and Wonderland. I have always loved these drawings, but wanted to add depth, and color to images. I also changed the landscape and background. I think the color really brings life, and a different prespective to these drawings.
My hope is that it will inspire children and adults to read, and enjoy these great books, and understand the life lessons that they impart.

'Ridiculous!' cried the Queen. 'Why, don't you see, child—' here she broke off with a frown, and, after thinking for a minute, suddenly changed the subject of the conversation. 'What do you mean by "If you really are a Queen"? What right have you to call yourself so? You can't be a Queen, you know, till you've passed the proper examination. And the sooner we begin it, the better.'
