Puppies and Bunnies

Here's the latest...
I just love to paint "soft-fuzzies"- the cute little animals. Here's a rabbit I just finished this past week. I had my mom here so it was a bit difficult to focus which gave me a few "moments" of frustration (with myself). But it finally pulled itself together. :-)

"The Local Guy" 3"x2" Casein on board

Here's the latest update on my new babies. They are all 4+ weeks old now. Getting cuter by the day. The sisters play together, wag their tails (which just sends me to giggling- soooo cute). They dream- what on EARTH are they dreaming about? They've seen nothing but mama and the 4 walls of a box, with now and then a look at me! But they "bark" in their sleep!

This girl is Pooka's baby- she is going to be just like mama- lazy, lazy! She has no one to play with (yet- I'll put her in with the other 2 soon for some fun). But every puppy I've ever had when you take them out of their box they are either frightened, worried, curious- something. Not her. She looks around, decides it's too much trouble and just lays down for a nap!!! VERY laid back personality. She is 3 days younger than the other 2, so she will get more active and playful- that may not seem like alot of time, but at this age can make a big difference. The other 2 just started to wag their tails a couple of days ago.

Widget's babies are more active- ofcourse 2 of them together makes a difference. The tan one is laid back- a bit like Pooka's baby, but not quite that lazy! The black one is going to be like her mama, Widget. Active, curious. She was my "complainer", now she's just looking, looking. I'm sure it will soon be- how do I get out of my box to go explore?! I think the photos actually show you their personalities a bit- you can see the "action" in little miss blacky's eyes!

Those puppies are INSANELY adorable!!!

And speaking of bunnies and puppies, my Gracie love to stalk rabbits on our walks. I think this Sheltie must have a little Border Collier in her...

Thanks Tracy and Gail. And yes, Tracy and Pat- those puppies just keep getting cuter by the day! I just LOVE to cuddle them. My time with my babies just goes waaay too fast.

Look how cute and how strong they all look! All your hard work paid off! And your bunny painting is preceious! We have 2 rabbits as pets. I think the world would be such a better place if we all just acted more like rabbits. They're at the bottom of the food chain so they don't expect much, and when they DO get something unexpected, they click their heals and dance.

Thanks Deb, Karen, and Carol. I've been having a hard time getting onto blogger. It finally let me in... not quite sure what the problem is! Karen- thanks so much for the comment on my greens. I think I'm learning! I'm loving playing with the different greens.
Have a new one to post when I can find the time I think you guys will like!
