That Rabbit!

(Daily Paintworks Auction beginning bid $150)

     What is it about this rabbit?! I have painted him five times now. He belongs to my darling niece, so I know him personally. He has a funny nose due to a childhood accident, but he is just adorable, full of personality, very precious to all of us.
     I had several false starts on this painting and finally decided to start with his full eye and work outward from there. When I realized I wanted to put my heart and energy into that one spot of the painting, the rest of it fell into place.
