The Mad Tea Party

This is a original watercolor & Pen & Ink on 9 X12 Watercolor board, Acid Free, and amazing!

This is a tribute to John Tenniel master illustrator, the original drawing done in the 1800's .

I loved the story of Alice and Wonderland, and wanted to share it with some artwork from the book.

The colors and characters are so amazing, and hilarious. 

This original artwork comes as shown unframed.

Another answer, and one that Carroll would approve of, is 'because there is a B in B
