We’re round the corner, heading towards 2020. Wow. Two whole decades of the 21st century already gone. Well, mostly, right?
Are you ready for Christmas? Not me. Not even close. Maybe you know someone who would appreciate a bunny painting? This one is in colors that are darker than I usually work with, but I know it will be just right for someone’s home.
I was working in a loose, expressionistic style. It’s 10″x20″, oil on stretched canvas. Available in my etsy shop,
here. SOLD, Thank you.

I painted in this looser style a couple days this week. For anybody doing the painting-a-day challenge, this is really the way to achieve that goal. Sometimes I think my knife paintings look a little stiff, and this brush exercise helps work on the flowing qualities of painting.
These both have a slat frame, but Home Depot stopped selling the wood I liked. This is thinner, and a touch narrower. I guess I like it okay, maybe the other kind was too heavy? It’s just odd when someplace stops selling something. There’s not even a slot and label for it anymore, so it’s not coming back.
This Belgian hare was at the fair a couple years ago. I don’t know if they make good pets–you just never see them. I sure like their litheness, and thin features.

Bunnies make me happy. You too?.
I painted a few little pieces by brush this week. I haven’t used a brush in a while, but it came back pretty easily. Well, this style did, anyway. My daughter said, “You’re going backwards,” because I used to paint this style all the time a few years ago. I guess I like it because it’s not entirely predictable what the results will be, and the brush strokes are rough, in fact more scrubbing than painting.
Anyway, he was fun to paint.

These will be the last paintings I have which will be dry and ready to ship in time for Christmas. They are in my etsy shop now. The closer the days to the holiday, the less I trust the post office because they start tossing the boxes and that’s when I’ve seen damage in the past. Thankfully only a handful of boxes in the 17 years (!!) I’ve been selling paintings, but still, I don’t like to take the chance.

Today is Thanksgiving, I hope everyone enjoys their time with friends and family.
By etsy shop Black Friday sale starts today (not Friday), and there’s 2 listings (this bunny, and the goat below) that don’t have sale prices. I’m trying to figure out how to get the sale feature turned on to those two, but if they are purchased before I do it, I will refund the 10%.
Have a great holiday!
