Art of the Day: Saturday August 01, 2015

Queen of Hearts

- by Nancy Denommee

This week's theme: Alice's Adventures

Whether they start down a rabbit hole or through a looking glass, Alice's adventures have captured the imaginations of both children and adults for 150 years. The artists at EBSQ are no different and this week Art of the Day presents art inspired by "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass,and What Alice Found There".


Art: Queen of Hearts by Artist Nancy Denommee
This original collage/painting is done on a primed masonite panel. I used a pallette knife to apply and scrape the many layers of paint for a distressed look. I painted the queen, adding bits from books and magazines for her hands, sleeves, her crown is cut from a playing card. Vintage black lace trims her sleeves, pearls fill her neckline and a three-dimensional glass heart is on her chest. One of a kind original.
