A New Bunny WIP

I hadn't planned on making another bunny, but the darn thing was in my head, then I put it in my sketchbook, and then those darn fingers of mine started producing him in papier mache clay. Here he is. He is on an egg shaped body with thin little arms and big paws holding an egg in one hand and an Easter basket in the other. I decided since Easter was in April this year it allowed me time to get him dried, painted and ready for adoption.

The top photo makes the basket look like it sits on the table top, but it doesn't. It is actually about 1/2" higher than the base of the bunny torso.

Here is a close up of the little guy.

Well, I need to get to it so I better pick Jake up and move him onto another chair so that I have a place to sit and work. Recently he has decided the studio chair is the "best" seat in the house so I have put another chair by the table, but he still prefers to sit in mine. He is a cat, so go figure!!

Have a great day and happy creating!!

Oh Laurie, I love him already! He is going to be my favorite I just know it. So cute already I can not wait to see him done.
Thank you for sharing. Now I need to wipe the drool off the keyboard. LOL

He's wonderful! What do you mean your chair? I'm sure Jake doesn't see it that way at all :]

Hey Pea,
you got me intimidated now about painting the little guy!! In my mind I know how I want him to look so wish me luck!! HA!

AHHH, were you looking in my window at that crazy cat?!!! He has been a pistol and did something I will talk about next week in the blog. He is lucky I'm getting more mellow as I get older!!

Oh do get those fingers back in the clay!!! It's good for the hands and the mind!!

Your sketchbook page was magic mister! You notice I didn't post one of my little scribbles. HA!!

I'm so glad you stopped by. I tried to leave you a comment the other day and couldn't get the silly thing to accept it. Probably me being a computer goof!!

I'll be posting another WIP either over the weekend or on Monday depending on how much computer time I get to have. Kelly is working on getting his web page for the tree farm up and running so I will wait my turn!

Have a great weekend all!
