I talked my husband (God love him!!) into going back to the garage sale Saturday so I could get this bunny I had seen... a vintage hard-plastic guy probably from the 50's ... I couldn't get him out of my mind and knew I wanted to paint him... creepy, isn't he?? :)

Oh Sally I came to visit to comment on how much I love your DSFDF painting but I love all your other pieces too! Such great eye candy!

Those eyes keep following me. And I think its a little erie that the verification word below for me to post this is "psycho." Seriously though, great work.

Hahaha... thank you all! I really liked painting him, but he is really creepy... I'm not sure what that says about me... not sure I want to know!! Robin, I may submit him to the OSU-Mansfield all Ohio show next week.. let me know if you want info on it. Deadline is next Friday.

I get so excited when I have a message! Thanks for the kind comment.... I always paint just what I see, too so I don't know what got into me to change the color!!
I am so impressed with your work. I couldn't paint realistic if I had to! Hats off to you- and yep... the bunny is a little creepy and VERY well done- true creativity to see that bunny and need to paint it!!
