I enjoy doing these abstracted animal paintings but the only ready subjects I have are cows and cats.  The photo that I worked from for this Belgian Hare was from Matt (I don’t know if he wants his last name mentioned so I won’t add it to protect his privacy).

I’ve been trying to take some more bird photographs without much luck.  I never seem to have my camera when the birds are around, and then if I have my camera, the birds aren’t there!

If you have a good, high resolution photograph of an animal (bird, rabbit, dog …) that you have taken and would give your permission for me to paint, I would love to see it!

This is another Belgian Hare done from a friend’s reference photo.  I don’t think the flash went off so the front of the hare was all in shadow.  I hope that I managed to get the look of her legs and front.  I love that these photos were taken inside on the bed.  To me, it shows that this little one is loved and spoiled.

 A friend sent me some photos of his Belgian Hares with permission to use them if I liked.  How could I not like this little beauty?  Her shape and pose was perfect.
