Feeling Like Alice...


"Because it feels like I have just woke up
In a world where down is up
And up is a long way from here..."
Lisa Mitchell, Alice in Wonderland

This just about sums up how I've been feeling lately: upside down! Can't seem to get it together no matter what I do. So I painted a girl with her head all messed up; just like me.  ;-) Actually, I do sit with my head tilted like this a lot. Hmmm... could explain a few things. 

Anyway, this is my entry for Paint Party Friday. I was also inspired by the song Alice in Wonderland, by Lisa Mitchell. I've included that as well. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I'm off to visit your blogs now! It may take me a few days but I intend to get to you all. Big HUGS!!

Beautiful painting and that is one of my favorite songs :) Have a great weekend!

Yay - you're back! And with a Moon in your painting! (Love the Moon in artwork.)

This is a gorgeous piece! Love the Moon, the colours you chose, her expression - very pensive. She looks like a scientist in her lab coat - wonder what she is thinking... Great one!

You may not be feeling "right" but your painting is beautiful. You've used my favorite colors and they have such a dreamy look.

Hi Pam. Glad you are back. I love your little girl with her head tilted to the side. Good job. I hope you feel better soon. Just remember that life is good and each day is special because we are in it. Loved the song too. Take care and enjoy.

I like it! The colors are great and she has a beautiful face. I hope you feel back to normal soon. Myself, I've given up on normal...

Perhaps this lovely work represents many of us who are often a bit off?
The way of artists... :-)
You always do such wonderful work.

I love your painting so pensive.....I've been feeling kind of inside out lately too; maybe something's in the air?
Anyway I'm glad you're back and I'm back and we're both back at the same time- i've missed you!

Hi
Yes life can be upside down sometimes (lots of the time), but I'm beginning to think that its okay- its fine to have an upside down type of day or week. I love your girl she looks wistful, contemplative - sitting in her haze of lilac and purple.

Pat Tillett said...

Haven't seen you in a while! Hope everything is okay...

Denni said...

Hi Pam! Where you been? I like your painting, I see her as having her head tilted to her soul, trying to listen to that still, small voice.

Heather said...

Love your painting! (and the song too!)

JKW said...
