It Happened In The Meadow by Lenora Brown

I was interested in recreating what really happened to Alice in a grassy area where she passed out due to hitting her head. But as I was approaching half way through, my intention was to have the entire piece in black and white, but she looked as if she was a victim awaiting CSI. For this reason I added in just a hint of color with colored pencil and tried to gray scale it with a Prismacolor marker.

This was created on white mixed media 9×12 paper.

Using the time constructively, Lenora was crocheting with some of the ladies, as she use to with her mother who taught her the craft. In so doing, one of the ladies mentioned how she would have liked to have a portrait drawn. Lenora took on the task and was inspired to continue. The illustrations here are mostly inspired by her childhood.
