Painting the Roses Red by Reckless-Buddah Painting the Roses Red by Reckless-Buddah
This is an update of an older image that I just HAD to redo ... I cringed inside when I looked at it - so it needed work - and here it is! Now I donít cringe! :D

A take on a younger Red Queen who loses it (be it from the pressure, all the power or wateva), and so starts painting the roses red... with blood... Mwahahahahaaaa!

The image and title was inspired by the song sung by the cards in a scene from the 1951 "Alice in Wonderland" by Walt Disney.

Lyrics:
"We're Painting the Roses Red ~ We dare not stop, or waste a drop. So let the paint be spread, we're painting the roses red! And many a tear we shed! Because we know they'll cease to grow, in fact they'll soon be dead. Yet we go ahead painting the roses red! We planted the white roses by mistake, and the queen she likes them red. If she saw white instead, she'd raise a fuss! And each of us, would quickly lose his head. Since this is the thought we dread, we're painting the roses red!"

it isn't that scary but my own mental image of the queen is like this but even more homicidal! it brought back long forgotten nightmares but the painting is still very beautiful :)
