cherry tree budding outside our window.
This year I'm really excited and swept away in the Easter spirit. We have a gorgeous cherry tree right outside our living room window and it's all in bloom with kisses of little white flowers. (I keep meaning to sketch it, and hopefully will before the blossom really sets in). We've already dove headfirst through two bags of Cadbury mini eggs, and I'm determined to put the PAAS Easter egg dying kit I bought last year (shut up) to good use this year! (And pray the dyes don't become poison over time).
Everywhere around me the now familiar is donning its springtime best again, and I've been celebrating early with some 'bunny portraits'. Specifically of the Easter Bunny and his Lady Bunny. Sure, we've never heard of the Easter Bunny having a lady bunny, but hey, Santa has Mrs. Claus, right? And after all the Easter Bunny is a rabbit,...so...look, I'm just sure he does alright for himself, okay?
Quick, before I get into more trouble with Jesus, here are my 'bunny portraits'!
|Easter and Lady Bunny, pencil and pen. I painted them on the same|
large sheet of watercolor paper, and masked off where they would be
cut later. This kept their background washes consistent.
|The Easter Bunny in pen, detail.|
|Easter Bunny, finished in watercolors. I wanted|
him as 'dapper' a gentleman rabbit as possible.
(The eggs were SO much fun!)
|Lovely Lady Bunny, finished in watercolors.|
Daffodils are a springtime favorite of my Mom's,
so I included some lightly across her lap.
|Lady Bunny, a detail. You can click|
on her for even more detail!
|These are not the paintings, but prints of the paintings,|
placed upon our window so I can get an example shot of them.
|Prints of the portraits side by side.|
|The prints find a home on my desk, to spruce up for spring!|
And naturally, I already have prints for sale in my shop! http://www.etsy.com/listing/69445621/easter-savings-bundle-easter-bunny-and
