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!
Two Rabbits in the Meadow is a painting that I made for my Heni’s Happy Paintings Etsy Shop back in early June. I thought of doing a new rabbit painting after spotting a little rabbit ahead of me on a path during my morning walk. I decided then that it would be fun to do a new whimsical painting which I could add to the animals in the meadow series.
I looked up the symbolic meaning of spotting a rabbit in a google search. Seeing a rabbit can mean more abundance may be coming but one needs to face their fear and know when to make their move. This made sense to me personally. During the spring season I was involved with marketing with the May art show and also updating my art work at the Flying Biscuit Cafes. Once my daughter came home from college for the summer and my husband got very busy with work, I got distracted and unfocused.
It felt good to get back to painting but now I’m ready to move forward with the marketing. Tonight I’m going to a small art and food truck event, getting myself back out there. Looks like it’s going to be a beautiful hot day and I’m hoping for no evening showers.
