Modern Survivor Rabbit

Ahhh…sometimes being a daily painter is like eating Sloppy Joe’s in a blizzard—no matter what I think I’m doing with the paint, it flies up in all kinds of directions.

Luckily this rabbit doesn’t mind my “off” days. She’s one of those rabbits that dodges crazy bicyclists in the park. Splotched with dirt and fragments of fluorescent bicycle gear, she considers herself very stylish. Look at that proud smile. If she was someone’s rabbit, they would name her Zoe.

    Sometimes those “off” days are on in all kinds of ways. I love that face — a perfect Friday look. Ready for the kind of Friday night that might have cuddling and firelight and sleeping in on Saturday. That face says, “I had a really long week” — because of all the chaos splashed around her.

      You are very kind. And you’re right about Friday. ; )

    There’s something about her face, so nearly human; it’s the eyes I think. Love the heart on her body; no matter what, she still has heart.

      Kathy, how observant of you (not a surprise, this is YOU we are talking about). I had no idea the heart was there. But what a nice surprise. Thank you.
