Beau ...

I've had hares and bunnies at the end of my paint brush lately.
Seems every time I sit to paint, a wild hare appears :-}
Maybe it's spotting Beau, our resident Garden hare in his "shelter spot" in our garden.  When it's snowy or rainy or icy, he can be found there.  Last year, during a dreadful ice storm, he stayed there for more than a week.  We brought him out carrot shavings and poured bird seed with corn into lettuce leaves for him.  Hubby managed to create a roof out of cardboard to further shelter him ♥
After I scanned and created a print from the original, I thought with Easter approaching, that I would create a few cards as well.
Beau {short for Beautiful} certainly lives up to his name as you can see ♥
Both the print and card set are available in my Etsy shop Vintage Sparrow Studio.
Blessings,
Beau , Deb & the Sparrows

I just love that you were so concerned for Beau that you fed him and your husband made a shelter for him. He is indeed beautiful.

Such a sweetie. I love bunnies, especially in the wild. My nephew's name is Beau and he is a beautiful soul. He is an English teacher in Japan right now. He went right after he graduated University and is in his second year of teaching.

Hi Kerrie ~ aren't wild bunnies gorgeous! It's been very cold, with another snow storm expected tonight. Beau likes to stay in a spot under our pergola which has little white twinkle lights strung above giving me just enough light to look and keep an eye out ♥
