Alice in Wonderland
Alice in Wonderland - Cassie
For those of us who loved make-believe as children, the realities of life can hit us hard as we enter in adult-hood. Fortunately we have been given a wonderful gift - imagination. Make-believe becomes a great outlet as we reach adulthood. We look into ourselves and let our imagination loose - creativity starts to flow, and works of art, poetry, dance, music, video, fashion, etc. emerge. I love a series of pictures I took of my granddaughter, Cassie, two Easter's ago. The shots reminded me of Alice in Wonderland as she ran to pick up candy left in the yard by her great-grandparents, Joe and Barb Dugone. Yes life has it's hard-ships, but along the way we have the joy of imagination and creativity.
As a side note Alice Foster Trumblee - a noted Idaho artist and teacher - has a brilliant painting of Alice in Wonderland. She has lovely copies available to buy. I rent a house for vacation rentals and it is the favorite painting of all my renters. Thank you Alice for sharing your creativity and imagination and creating a beautiful work of art that I and many others enjoy.
