Bunnies on my brain!

It is officially spring! Flowers are blooming and redbuds are unfurling into green leaves! The air is delightful, and last Sunday was the Spring Equinox. I spent the day painting. I wanted to capture Easter and spring,..and here is what I did.... this wooden painted piece below is a large size,..26 inches across, and was so delightful to paint!

I had so much fun with the baby chicks,..because, well, what IS cuter than a baby chick? Except a baby duck, maybe?

I just love to paint because all it is is arranging color!

The bunny has a bridle of sorts. I got his image from an old postcard. I just love the old cards! I added the chicks and bright background. It is early morning, and the Easter Bunny just has a few more eggs in his basket to deliver and hide! The little chicks look on in worshipful awe.

This one I made up right out of my head,..having recently camped out on the boulders of a mountain river under a waxing crescent moon,...with the river shining below,..I painted a night time bunny by a creek under a crescent moon! The scalloped edged tin wall hanging I painted him on could serve as a mail holder or you could stick in some decorative branches,..the kind with buds that are about to sprout! I like this one, because rabbits do get about at night,..and the Easter bunny himself, much like Santa, has to make his rounds in the night!

I didn't get very many good shots as I was in a hurry to workout but I will get better ones tomorrow, when I plan to put him on eBay....

Here is a small sign I am working on. All my tiny liner brushes were shot so I wasn't happy with the lettering,..time to stock up on new brushes and do a better job,..but you get the gist,...

I love Easter! Bring on the jelly beans and the white chocolate rabbits and cream eggs! I can't wait to dye eggs with my kids! And they are begging for real chicks and ducklings this year. We used to have chickens,...may just be time to get another flock!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are enjoying spring wherever you are, too.
