Beautiful and very creative. This would be great matted and framed. All your work is wonderful - extremely talented. Are the black and whites done in pencil? You should offer them up for sale. I especially like the piece you did for Talisman. The flowers are incredible.

Kathy you never cease to amaze me with your work, this is pure genius and should be used for something, a poster, story, film... absolutely amazing :-)

This is awesome!

Kathy you are blowing my mind again.

Can I use this tomorrow for my fantasy friday as the top picture for breakfast. It is the picture everyone sees first.

If I don't hear a no before then I will put it up. At the bottom will be Artwork B by Kathy Hare.

Please, pretty please.

Gorgeous. Stunning. God-enspired.

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

Kathy, how do you do this awesome stuff??? It's just breathe taking your imagination. It's so overwhelming!!!! I'm..... I'm actually speechless. You see I love and adore Alice in Wonderland and I am always on the hunt for anything of Lewis Carroll that has been illustrated so this piece really stuck a cord with me! Thanks so much for your kind words left on the blog. It encourages me in ways you will never ever know. May God bless you for you very kind words my friend.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Love that it's in pencil. Not a easy medium to show depth, but you did a great job. Although I think it would be spectacular in color.
