Cuppa Bunny

"Cuppa Bunny" Watercolor by Niya Christine. Copyright 2013

19/365 Paintings for 2013

Is there anything better than a Cuppa Bunny?

The barista says… “Mocha latte? Or, have you tried our Peppermint mocha? What about a Cup of Bunny? Huh? What did you say? You want the bunny with the heart tattoo? That’s not really a heart you know. It’s a butterfly. It imprinted. Sometimes this happens. Butterflies have attachment issues and ‘bunny’ is like ‘mom’ to a butterfly. Huh? I can’t hear you over the steamer. Did the ghost of Beatrice Potter put me up to this? Ahhh.. just enjoy your bunny. Shhh.. don’t wake her. And, the coffee is on the house.”


Kissing kettles, bunnies and butterflies? Have I gone soft? Nah, I was already mush.

    My daughter’s nickname is Bunny or Rabbit. (When she was an infant, I called those zip-up onesies with the feet her “bunny suit” and it sorta stuck.) I tell her a day will come when she’ll make me stop calling her that but we’ve gotten to 10 and it’s still OK. She also likes to paint and to write, and I often show her your work to keep her inspired.

    I had just opened this up when she walked past and I said, “Hey, look at this!” She gasped and said, “Wow! I wish I could have that!” We both love it. So there you go, your fan-base is expanding …

    (All kidding aside, there is something very special about this one, and we laughed over the story that goes with it.)

      Oh I love this story.
      Let’s see if we can get your bunny my cuppa bunny in print in the near future. I just invested in a lovely color printer. ; )

      Thank you both for viewing, reading and laughing. Makes me happy!

      Hi Leah
      I will be selling the prints very soon. Hopefully by early next weeks. The originals may be saved for the end of the exhibit. But I’ll stay in touch about that. There are 4 others who want this original… so I’m working to make the prints ‘really high quality’ to make people happy.
      And, thank you so much!!!!
