Just finished this painting for the Taranaki Art Review. It is a about a time when kids roamed in the country, poked dead things with sticks, believed in the Easter Bunny and that inanimate objects could have life.... like the branch that you sit astride and it could be a horse or a stick that becomes King Arthur's sword! The rabbit is a small statue that lives on my stereo. In fact there is a pair of them.... sitting watchful over the kitchen. I just had to include the rabbit in the painting!
