[Sold] I’m Late – 1st in The Wonderland Series


Val Myburgh (@valburgh) continues to flabbergast us. She painted this scene, titled I’m Late, with a brush so fine she had to wear magnifying lenses. When we looked at it through a loupe we were gobsmacked to find that one can see individual (purple!) toes on the caterpillar; fine veins inside the rabbit’s ears; the gills on the mushroom; the rabbit’s jacket even has piping at the shoulder. What a masterpiece … art that can be carried and used daily.

This is the first in Val’s Wonderland Series. We can hardly wait to see what she paints next!
