Thank you Nadine for choosing this theme for the drawing challenge this week.
Alice Alice Alice.
She has always been dear to my heart.
A girl lost in a confusing Wonderland.
Forever chasing rabbits down holes.
One of my favourite Australian artists (who I chanced upon here) is Charles Blackman.
He has painted dear Alice for most of his life. Examples are above.
And hard to beat in my book.

I like to paint her too.
Perhaps it’s the teapots and cups and the roses and hearts.
Below I have drawn with oil pastel on an old photograph of my daughter.
Sweet dreams.
I’m off to chase rabbits.


  1. your painting made me speechless
    all those colors
    her beautiful face shining through
    the dress
    you should paint more dear Jasmin
    it is lovely!


  2. Nice drawing !!

    Thank you for your kind message.
    Have a nice day !

  3. Hi, hello dear Jazzy Jasmin,
    that Alice of Mr Charles Blackman reminds me on the twins of your partner... Fabulous.
    And little Alice/Gigi with flowers, looking curious, widen the scope, beyond the call of duty, full of colours!
