working toward a mock turtle

I've been doing drawings and studies of cows and turtles, all in an effort to make myself a good mock turtle.

Yay! It passed muster!

Will the new bunny make the grade?

Okay, after trying to avoid it, after tears and protestations (she insisted on a white bunny on yellow or orange), here's the new bunny. The only question is: will my daughter accept it?

Baby rabbit on pink with moss

My daughter was home sick today --we're hoping it isn't scarlet fever again-- so I was really surprised that I got time to paint today. My daughter ordered a white rabbit on yellow for her birthday, and cried when she saw this one. Oh well, guess I'll have to try again!
Luckily, I still have a couple of days...
I remember when I was a child that pink and green were popular "preppy" colors, and I had a reaction against the mixture in the 90s. Then I went on a trip to New Mexico, and fell in love with the pink and green soft mountains there. It's been a favorite color combination ever since.

Beautiful Rabbit Painting

Just wanted to give a shout out for the artist of a really nice painting a friend found on Etsy:

New Sea Turtle Painting

After fishing around for hours for just the right turtle model, I finally found it on Wikipedia. Gotta love Wikipedia.

My animation, Safe Painting Dream, made the "sélection officielle" for the 2010 Dérapage in Montreal! Yay!
Thanks to Chris Nuzum, for helping me figure out how to meet the committee's DVD requirements, and to Laurent Bonetto for creating a 48 mHz sound track....
