"Chocolate Dutch Rabbit," 2" x 3", egg tempera on Strathmore board, (available)
I love chocolate Dutch rabbits, so I thought I'd try painting a mother and a baby. This is the mother.
Ed Burton recently honored me with the Passion for Painting and the Lemonade Award. It's my first time receiving the Lemonade Award, given for positive attitude, gratitude, support, and online friendship. Thanks Ed, it's mutual, and check out Ed's blog, to see his amazing tromp d'oeil ceiling mural.
Instead of passing these two awards on, I'd like to award two more people Mona's Mini Blog Award: Rachelle Siegrist, and Dana Lee Thompson. Don't miss seeing their fine work in miniature, and Rachelle's blog. Rachelle often features her latest wildlife masterpiece on her blog. Dana paints beautiful horses and hounds, and I hope she'll be inspired to start her blog soon, but any miniaturist qualifies for this award and can pass it on to others via email if not via blog.
Rachelle and Dana, you can see the rules for passing this award forward in my April 16 post, and here are five more of my favorite movies: " The English Patient", "Nashville", "Days of Heaven" (love the soundtrack in this one), "The Russians are Coming...The Russians are Coming!", & "Rear Window". (My movie of the year for 2009 is still "Sugar!") (Note: I made an error in Dana Lee Thompson's link at first. So sorry, it's fixed now.)
