Just a little holiday greeting! To all my friends, I hope you have a wonderful, peaceful holiday.
I’d like to share a couple of watercolor cards I created for my Mom and Aunt Mary. Why a bunny? It just popped in my head…sort of the Christmas Bunny of Happiness.
Perhaps the Easter Bunny needed to evolve or try a new direction. Do you suppose it’ll be back in time for Easter?
About the Rabbit
My model is a “netsuke” replica. Netsuke are Japanese miniature sculptures. They were originally designed to be used as fastener or toggle. Apparently, some were so ornately carved that they have become works of art.
I collected this small rabbit in Berlin, GE. My husband and I were there in the 1990’s and visited one of the museums. Though I did pick up an art book in the gift shop, I was also taken by this small figure. The rabbit is about an inch tall.
Oddly enough, I have been to Japan. I went to Sendai, Japan, in 1990. I have some souvenirs from that visit that I treasure, though none of them art “netsuke”. I’ll save them for a later date.
May the Red Christmas Bunny of Happiness come your way.
