Finished - Above and Below

Yesterday, I posted a piece about a work in progress that was inspired by watching the television show "Upstairs Downstairs." Well, I finished it this afternoon, so here is the completed work, which I've titled "Above and Below." As I was finishing it, I decided to add a few elements.  I added a sun in the sky and a couple of earthworms that can be seen slithering around the rabbit's burrow.  This is my tribute to "Upstairs Downstairs," and the art of Mary Blair, who as I mentioned in yesterday's post was one of Disney's top designers (she's responsible for the look of Disney's animated "Alice in Wonderland," and "Cinderella," not to mention the "It's a Small World" attraction at Disneyland). The piece measures a little over 9 inches by about 11.5 inches.  It was done using Corel Painter 11 software.  I'm happy with the way it turned out, I'm even thinking of possibly having prints made to sell.  Let me know if you're interested in one.

  1. An ambitious, sensitive piece. I'm toying with buying Corel painter instead of Photoshop because of the cost. This tempts me....
