Archibald by ursulav Archibald by ursulav
I had this urge to paint rocks. Really, that was it. Rocks showed up and said "Paint us!" I do not argue with the rocks. Since the rocks needed something, and I had recently been looking at the art of Michael Sowa, who pops a lot of random bunnies into his art, I figured I could do worse than a random bunny.

I don't know quite why he's there, but his name is definitely Archibald. I could see him showing up in another rock painting. There is something about a small bunny and massive rocks that I find vaguely appealling. It's not a complex image, per se, but it definitely has rocks. (Also. Bunnies have hairy feet, not pads. I am aware of this, but have taken liberties.)

Anyway! 8.25 x 18.25, acrylic and pencil on illustration board, original is for sale, prints are available for $10 and $20 plus shipping, I take paypal, check, money order, you name it. Drop a note or visit [link] for details!

The story I get from this one is that the Easter Bunny has nearly finished his night's work of painting all the world's eggs, but he got stuck in a ravine while trying to reach that one last egg. And now the sun has risen and he's in danger of being seen by the children of the world. But he's really more concerned about that unpainted egg than being stuck in a canyon.

the intimidation of having to jump/climb that wall would leave anyone grasping their toes. the small rabbit at the foot of a looming cliffside i can come to terms with... the egg, is definitely out there

He's cute, but that cave kinda reminds me of Monty Python, maybe it's because I've seen a lot of Monty Python? Oh well, I like how he's looking up at that little egg.

You have a sense of humor that I have yet to find an equal to. The rabbit contiplating the egg at the top. I like the rocks... no you don't want to argue with them. They have texture. Well done.

And once again . . . the unexplained random egg. XD Oh! Your bunny could have sore-hocks on his feet . . . that would let the pink show. And could be easily explained, since he's been climbing rocks. ^__^
