Birthday Bunny





Fleshed out painting..






More body to the painting...








This is what I have decided is done...I wanted an old looking piece, with crackle flakes...only my crackle didn't crack..it just crazed a little. after trying it a couple of times I gave up and just lettered the project ..aged a bit with a sepia-ish tone and I am calling it done.

On 5x7 canvas, used acrylic paints, permanent waterproof inks...and stamped for background noise.

My SIL is a bunny fanatic...so this I did for her kitchen or where ever she might decide it works...
I was also trying to get a feral looking bunny...bunnies are too cute to look mean I guess...he does look a little mad though.

Happy Birthday Donna!

Mary,

Are you using a commercial glue-chip compound for the crackle? I frequent a Sign Arts site called the Letterhead forum. They discuss the use of various glues to produce the glue chipping on what looks to be vintage signs. You might want to give them a look if that's of interest to you. I can also provide you a link.

This looks good. Something funny... I read the the title and just glanced at the top painting & though the "bunny" was going to be a naked woman laying on her side with her hands in her hair, elbows up!!!

I love this! The bunny does still look sweet-like you say bunnies find it hard not to-but he does look quite obsessed with that carrot! I love the words to accompany the picture too.
I hear you are doing the sketchbook project too! I am looking forward to seeing your book!

I really like this piece. Mostly I like to see that, like me, you express your creativity using a wide variety of voices.

Hi, Mary! Lovely! I like the stamped images fading in and out of the background. Great bunny and carrot and I love how it expresses your sense of humor! :-)
