Jack #1


Here in the valley we have Jack Rabbits and they always make me smile when I see them hopping along in the pasture.  Their ears are long but I decided to paint this little Jack Rabbit close up to show off his big brown eyes.  "Jack #1" is the first in a series of three Jack Rabbits for a triptych series.  Finding this little Jack Rabbit made for, "A Painting Day".

You've captured the wild and wary nature of this hearty creature and a delicate beauty too. What a lovely piece.
