If You Knew Time as Well as I Do...


This week has been a hectic one for me. I didn't paint much or make any dolls for ebay. It was a weeklong preparation for the Utah Watercolor Society Miniature Show, and I had to do a bunch of stuff for it as well as paint a picture (I tend to procrastinate right up to the deadline.) Tonight was the reception. It was very nice. But I am really pooped. There was so much to do to get ready for the show, hanging the paintings, making all the labels for the paintings, getting the gallery ready for the reception...
Since I didn't get anything done to post on ebay, I am posting the painting here that I put in the miniature show. It is a picture of the Mad Hatter (a different sort of hatter than you may have seen before). If you read the dialog between him and Alice, you may see that he is really a clever sort of fellow in a twisted sort of way. So I depicted him as looking not quite so 'mad' but perhaps with a bit of sense, at least in his own mind. I wrote on the painting this quote from 'Alice in Wonderland';
`If you knew Time as well as I do,' said the Hatter, you wouldn't talk about wasting it. '
