Happy Easter! I painted this little fellow in late February of this year. Here in Atlanta we were enjoying some unusually early warm weather which was delightful and inspired me to paint Bounding Bunny. As I was painting, I began to see think about the Easter bunny and how much fun we had as children hunting for Easter eggs and then later as a parent, enjoying the delight of my child and her friends doing the same. So in this painting I added eggs into the layers of color as a wink to all that fun!
Also, Happy Passover to those of you celebrating that holiday. It’s a beautiful morning here, hope everyone enjoys the day!
“Oh, the lovely fickleness of an April day!” William Hamilton Gibson
Spring here in Atlanta has been unseasonably chilly. Last night the low temperature was 39 degrees. April has started out fickle with gray weather and rain. This weekend it is supposed to be sunny and warmer. Finally! The dogwoods and azaleas are just about to bloom, it’s going to be gorgeous around here. My daughter’s school spring break starts next week, she is heading to the beach with a friend, hopefully the weather will be lovely for them. I will have more time to paint. I’m starting a second jungle theme painting, this one will be a crocodile.
I painted Orange Fish with Raindrops around this time last year and I think it suits an April day well.
