Browsing in Pier 1 Imports, these two bunnies, not quite the same, sitting nose to nose, caught my eye and I had to take them home. Then “Bunny” and “Bunnz” had to be painted. They are el cheapo and just barely finished, so they are not natural-looking bunnies. I had a hard time keeping them artificial and flat-looking in the paintings. Yet their plain, blank surfaces contrast nicely against the glowing fresh fruit. Life and artifice, colour and monochrome in one setting.
