Acrylic on Wood, 18″ x 24″
I have always loved “Alice in Wonderland” for its power to take the reader from this world to a place of previously unimagined things. Walking an alpine trail has much the same power. This past summer I discovered trees and flowers on a miniature scale, a colorful Milbert’s Tortoiseshell butterfly and a bee pollinating at twelve thousand feet. These creatures and botanical beings are not new to science but for me, observing them for the first time at great heights was a wondrous experience Alice would be jealous of. This painting is a record of that memory, meant to encourage you to climb a mountain and take a good look underfoot.
