Imparting a bit of magic into the common is my goal in art. A cottontail rabbit is a common animal we find in rural and metropolitan areas and often glance over. But under controlled water and pigment, this common little animal becomes a moment of pause for the viewer. Honoring the true fluid nature of watercolor to elevate this little backyard friend to a moment of pause and reflection evokes a sense of delightful calm. This 8x10 inch piece is framed to 11x14.
