I saw this jackrabbit in a field as I was driving down our street but I didn't have my camera. I backed up into our driveway, grabbed my camera and went back out praying the rabbit would still be there. It was! I was so excited because I wanted to get photos of a jackrabbit in its natural place on the prairie. They are perfectly camouflaged and hard to see. My goal in this painting was not just to paint a cute rabbit but to show its environment — prickly pear cactus and all.
