We believe 'Peter Rabbit' because Beatrix Potter believes it. You have to.
Though I often paint animals they are usually commission pieces - mostly dogs. I love dogs but once we had a rabbit named "Buttercup." This rabbit is out of my imagination and the design behind it is an abstract of a piece of scarf pattern. Sometimes these things just spill out of your brain and you have to go with it. This one is all brush work and I even broke out the fussy little liner brush for the background. Why? Who knows?
I named it She's mesmerized because she kind of has that deer in the headlights look.
