For Paint Party Friday
Blue Bunny
-Prints Avail on Etsy


Saturday September 24th is International Rabbit Day!


Happy Friday!  Welcome Paint Party Friday Friends!  This is my brand spankin new blog and I'd love to have you as a follower! It's just a gorgeous, sunny day here in the NorthWest.  What am I thinking about today, Stickmen!  Stickmen you say?  Well as I was doing my morning browse on Facebook I noticed a link someone shared called "Draw a Stickman."  Well why not, so I went to check it out and was delightfully surprised.  I'm not going to give anything away but I hope you'll check it out and enjoy it as much I did.  Here's a link to Draw A Stickman  for you 

I posted my Blue Bunny today for Paint Party Friday because he has always been one of my favorite paintings.  He's technically quite simple but I love the dramatic interplay of the colors and children always respond to it.   The original is Acrylic and Charcoal.  He's not a new painting, I've got one in the works that needs to be photographed that I'll share next Friday.

I've never released prints of him before but decided to do a limited print edition in a variety of sizes and added him to my ETSY shop today.  For my blog followers I am offering a very special deal, buy one and get one for a friend.  You decide if you get the earlier or the later edition since they are all signed and numbered. To claim this offer order 1 print in the size you prefer and send me an ETSY Email with the subject line BBBOGO.   I will confirm you are a follower on my blog  (It's ok to be a new follower) and email you for details on your matching gift print.

Hope your Friday is Fabulous!

Oh wow - I love the bold and beautiful simplicity of your blue bunny! I also think the dog painting you created for the humane society in the post below is wonderful! I am having so much fun looking around your blog and etsy shop (your cow collage is fantastic)!

Thank you for the stickman link - I had my son draw the pictures and he thought it was a lot of fun :)
