Holiday Hare ...

*Holiday Hare*
Available in my Etsy shop

I know it's only October :-)
And we don't have any snow ... (yet)
 
I didn't even anticipate painting a snowy scene when I started this morning.
 
Originally, my plan was a garden hare with his nose pointing upward,
a Sparrow resting on the tip of his fluffy nose.
 
But as I began to draw, the wind was blowing outside, it became very dark and rain drops began to hit my Sparrow Studio window. I turned on the twinkle lights and all of a sudden, looking down at my watercolour paper,  I envisioned Hare wearing a lovely plaid scarf, sitting on a bed of freshly fallen snow, with  more flakes falling from above, a star filled sky, and a skinny, lanky, tree.  You know ... the one that always gets left behind on the Christmas tree lots (so of course ... the very one I fall in love with) :-) Topped with a golden star just perfect for wishing upon ♥

Some older photo of our Garden bunnies ...
With such beauty in my own little garden ...
how could I not paint one in snow ♥

We do not need to go out and find love;
rather, we need to be still
and let love discover us
