Mrs. Jackrabbit

This a a female jackrabbit. I have been watching jackrabbits on the Colorado prairie for a few years now. The females are thinner, more nervous, and more hungry (because they are usually nursing or pregnant.) In the summer they tend to hang out on our green lawn for a long time eating as much as they can. I love watching them. Their eyes and ears make them strangely beautiful. This is a 13 x 16 inch charcoal drawing available in my Etsy gallery.

Flop Ear Jackrabbit

My first painting in 2018 and my first painting for over two months. I've been down with a virus that wouldn't let go. Finally have some energy again. Am so thankful! You don't appreciate things until you lose them for a while. I've painted this jackrabbit before. Thought I'd better start with something familiar. Available in my Etsy gallery.

• framed as shown
• Size: 8 x 10 inch
• Framed size 12.75 x 21.75

• Title: Sunset Glow

The clouds over the western plains are spectacular at sunset. Painting them is quite a challenge. There are so many colors that seem to layer over each other creating subtle shifts in value. There's also a kind of shimmering translucence as the light passes through them. Available in my Etsy gallery. Click here to view on Etsy.
