Hippity Hop - Chocolate Bunny Mixed Media Art
I started this piece a couple weeks ago. I had some spare time and just was playing. When I first started with fine art mediums, back in high school, my favorite was oil pastels. I still have a large supply of them and thought it would be fun to try them again. The first layer reminds me of jelly beans - bright, yummy rainbow of colors. From there I built up several layers of texture and finished with my favorite Easter candy - a large, chocolate rabbit. Just makes me want to bite the ears off! Hippity Hop is a much sweeter piece than I've been doing lately and every time I see it, I want a handful of candy.
