White Rabbit with Apricots, oil on panel, 14×11 in.

 Today is the last day to sign up for the free print contest. You can sign up using the form in the sidebar or click here.

This is the painting featured in my monthly newsletter which you also get for signing-up. I’m featuring in-progress images of my artwork as well as other things. You can see the newsletter here.

This painting incorporates a white ceramic rabbit planter I found in an antique shop in Scottsdale earlier this year. It was in an antique fair crammed with seller’s booths and there were lots of items I would have loved to have taken home. It seemed a perfect fit for the “nesting instinct” series I’m working on of bird nests with unexpected objects in them. An inquisitive, wise, intelligent face that seems to be keeping secrets.

The apricots are the first harvest from a small apricot tree we panted this year. Normally you don’t get much the first year but we were surprised with this small harvest of firm and sweet fruit.

If you like my work and know someone who might like to get the newsletter or be entered to win the print, please share this with them. Purchasing information for this artwork can be found here.

    Hello Miss Jean! I really enjoy looking at your paintings. Whimsical painting… curious to see other paintings in the “nesting” series.

    Love to you from Joe and Joan :-}

      Thanks. They’re fun to do. I’m posting them her and in the newsletter as I do them but they eventually end up on the website. Hope you are both well. J
