Well, Here's another bunny portrait. I feelreally embaressed to say this, but I cant remember the name of thebunny..... I guess it's been a long week and I need the weekend to comefast, or else i've just got no memory at all.

This is mostly a colored pencil sketch, with a watercolor wash as abase.... I didnt think there was anyway I could do the shading andindividual hairs of the fur unless I used primarily colored pencil.

GOOD GOD! I've run out of compliments, Sandhills. These paintings are better than the photographs.

Youmustmake something of this great talent of yoursand take it out there and sell it. People will pay good moneyfor this. You're one of the best animal artists I've everseen.

Wow....

I am not an emotional person, but this nearly brought me totears. It's soooo beautiful. The softness of her fur and herlittle nose, her whiskers, those long, gorgeous lashes I love, and herdeep brown eyes - it's all just amazing. I'm stunned.

Thanks so much.... I felt sort of bad that Icould do more of it in watercolor, but i just felt that the fur detailcouldnt have been done proper justice that way.

I'm so glad that now i now the bun's name.... Peanut! That's just the cutest name :)

And the bunny really does look like a peanut, with the coloring.

Thanks so much for all the wonderful words on theportrait.... :) Everyone on Rabbits Only really is wonderful! I swear,whenever anyone's having a bad day or is feeling down they should comehere.... It's like the best therapy there is! lol.

I'm still working on more portraits.... I dont want people to worry orfeel like "why isnt she doing my portrait yet?". I'm just going downthe list, so it's taking a bit of time, but they'll all get done. Ontop of the bunny portraits I've also got a few other portraits to do,so I just wanted to let people know that I havent forgotten about theirpaintings.

Sandhills_rabbits,

Don't rush! I'm sure everyone will understand why it takes a littlelonger than it has. I for one am quite shocked at how fast you gotthrough some of these!

I'd pay if I had a way to, also.
