Alice in Wonderland Still life

I'm a BIG fan of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I have over 300 copies of that book with many different illustrators.

I've been wanting to do a painting based on the book for quite some time. A Mad Tea Party is my favorite chapter  so that is what inspired this still life. "It's Always 6 O'clock" is oil on canvas, 24 x 30.
