A very moving artwork. I find it most unsettling.

We need a poem from Greggo for this one. Beautiful, haunting, so full of emotion.

Innocence of
childlike
serene
unquestioning trust

into the rabbit hole
trust nothing
nothing is as it seems

the longer
under the influence
the less
the real
is real

as a child begins
the drugs
they change the innocence
and the trust

the age
comes quickly
soon a young woman emerges
never the child again

crazy causes crazy
some stay in the rabbit hole
some escape
into the sunshine

what will Alice do
what will happen
will she stay under
or rise up

alice
Alice
ALICE

wake up!

Thanks, Greggo! VERY good. I love it.

based on the oft repeated belief that Alice's "trip" was an acid trip, which certainly would explain a lot....

Ethereal and you've captured her emotion. I like how you do that with what seems to be non-fussy, not overworked notes of color. There is an immediacy to your characters -- they always seem to matter and we care about what they are thinking and feeling, about what their predicament or moment is. I have not yet figured out how to infuse feeling into my painting. I admire that you do so every time.

Gals and boys, I just read for the (choose a number) time your incredible words and the poetry of course. Wow, I am extremely grateful to you all!

Beautiful. And thanks.
I've done a little acrylics on paper and like it, kinda gives me a new perspective on acrylic paint. It really is pretty versatile.
Did you use a printmaking paper, or canvas paper? Sorry for all the questions!

Dorian, I haven't bought paper for a long time. However, I vaguely remember that I bought pieces of pretty thick and heavy paper that is made for watercolor, not for acrylics. When you start on it with acrylics, it cradles and upsets me. But I don't give up. I pile up on it until it gives in...

I agree - make that paper bend to your will, not the other way around! I'm always experimenting with different paints, inks, etc on various papers and come across this fight a lot.
