"The Chief Difficulty"

Above is my new painting "The Chief Difficulty". It is a painting of Alice in Wonderland. Remember the croquet match where the croquet mallots are flamingos?! The quote is: "the chief difficulty Alice found at first was in managing her flamingo". In the book, the croquet balls are hedgehogs and each time Alice tries to swing her "mallot", the flamingo looks up at her.

I did this painting specifically as a submission to Somerset Studio for their Alice issue. Wish me luck!
