I looked, and I looked, and I saw...

I was hoping to find a frog in this painting, and I did!  He is hiding under the grass.  I am using watercolor pensils very, very lightly, and then glazing over with a damp brush.  Certain pensils when wet turn into shrieking colors!  So, I'm going very, very slow, building up my darks and contrasts very gradually.  I don't have very many pensils, so when I get bored with their color, I do a little glaze from my palette. 

Finally!  We are having warm, sunny weather.  The bunnies are soooo happy to join me outside on the patio.  And Lucky is enjoying the parsely and sage.  It is good to see her eating again!  Her health has been touch and go for months now.  So, each day I appreciate the simple good things in life.

Love the rabbits! Do you have a photo of one sitting up and washing his face and ears? We had rabbitts when I was small and I love the faces. I like the white shaggy one here.
