 I love to paint paintings that have a story to go along with them. Here is the story that I imagined when painting this one:

The little brown rabbit lived under the tall evergreen trees nestled in the Purple Mountains. He ran and played, jumped and danced, and frolicked happily by the water's edge, making everyone who met him smile and laugh at his joy. One day, as he sat under the tallest tree in the forest, he heard a marvelous sound. A mockingbird had landed on a nearby branch and sang such a beautiful song that the little brown rabbit felt as if his heart would burst. He wanted to sing along more than he had ever wanted anything in his entire life, and he felt the music build up inside him, but try as he might, he could not utter a single note. The poor little bunny cried out in despair and asked the mockingbird how he, too, could sing. The mockingbird replied that it would require a great adventure and told him how it could be done. That very afternoon, the little brown rabbit set sail in a little boat. His adventure had begun.

It is fun to make up stories about the art projects you're working on.  I hope your bunny learns how to sing!

Nice composition; I like the layered effect you achieved with both the mountains and the trees.

I have 3 or 4 wild rabbits living in various parts of my yard.  They drive the cat bonkers; she chases them from window-to-window every morning/night.  None of them have taken up sailing . . . yet.

Such a cute and sweet story.  This has great potential for a short story book Cheesy

Precious little bunny! He looks so content in his tiny boat. Smiley
