In Honor of the Easter Bunny

"Surprise on the Greenway"
Oil on Canvas

I did this one a while ago....I am still really scrambling here with other obligations. But since it is the Easter Season...the renewal of our spirits, plants and animals after the cold winter, I thought it would be fun to look at this guy again. He is inspired by the rabbits I saw on the greenway in Colorado Springs the last time I was there. This turned out more stylized than I wish. When I have nothing but a distant memory to paint from, that seems to be the outcome. I have another rabbit I'll post soon that is the real deal...a cute backyard visitor that I was able to photograph before he hopped away.
