Sketch for New Painting


In honor of Father's Day, here is the sketch for a large painting I am working on called: "Peter and Flopsy Plus Eight". I had first planned to do this on a 16" by 20" piece of masonite, but wussed out and am doing it on cold press illustration board (acrylic on gesso) instead. Ever since I started this sketch, I have seen a lot of rabbits around in the yard, biking, eating my garden, etc. I am not sure what this means, but it is a little odd...

  6. It is actually a "CW" rabbit for my signature :)

    Yeah, I think the 15 minutes of fame were up 10 minutes ago for Jon and Kate...

  7. It's so sweet. And their world seems so peaceful, so gentle.

    But I can imagine them with glowing, malevolent red eyes, can't I?

  8. Is it really a take-off on Jon and Kate?
    Shouldn't Mama Bunny be dogged by Papa Ratsy?
