rabbit watched past-printed snow
trembling poet’s heart

    Love your precious bunny…she looks like she has much to share, trembling all the while.

      Cousin JRuth,
      Thank you. I like her too. I’m learning about more about her all the time. She whispered a story to me last night just as I was falling asleep. Silly thing, I didn’t have a notebook handy. I’ll get her to tell me the story again soon.

    Yousei, I really like this for a gravatar for you. I like the part about “watched past- printed snow”. That is what the rabbits seem to do in my back yard. I don’t know why I get them with three little chasing dogs, but I do. I like it that you chose watercolor to render your poet’s gravatar. It has that transparent quality that I think goes so well with what you do. Your color choices are appealing. I especially like the composition of the rabbit backed in the corner with overlapping branch adding depth and offering an open space for the rabbit to move into. Beautiful.

      Thank you. 😀 What I like is how you are able to describe what I did when all I did was see it in my mind and try to paint it. I’m just glad it turned out so well. That doesn’t always happen for my art endeavors. You should see her often, since I finally got her changed to my gravatar. 🙂

    such a forlorn yet hopeful rabbit, so willing to give her affection. and she looks at you with knowing…you will care for her.

  5. Sweet! That rabbit is adorable…

    I like the bit about trembling, it draws a nice connection.

      Good day, Master Chef! I like using my artwork. Unfortunately with a dialup connection, I can’t always make the change quickly. I’m going to the library later today and try to do it (they have satellite). So happy you stopped by and left a comment. Happy New Year to you too!

  8. Really lovely, hope your New Years goes great for you.

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Tasneem, Thanks! I thought it turned out well. I am never sure what will happen, being such a freshman painter, but I was very happy with the result. Thanks for stopping by!!!! 😀 Happy New Year to you too.

    There was a road;
    To make New Year’s way
    Watching the road again
