Girl With Bunny

girl with bunny

This painting was a commission for a girl with bunny. The young woman in real life refers to her boyfriend as “bunny” and his nick name is “boo boo”. So I put a tattoo on the ear with his name. Then, a bandaide on her arm to signify a boo boo. The carrot earrings are self explanatory and in the back ground impressionistic carrot patch. I had fun with this and it was a challenge

    Before I saw that this was a commission piece I thought the facial features were so different from what you typically do. I did a commission once that was horrible. I tried to make it what they wanted instead of how I would have created it and it wasn’t me at all – you have been able to keep your style and technique through out this. Just saw the carrot earrings! haha Great work as usual Tricia!

    Nina, thank you so much for your perceptive comment, I never work from photographs or images, only from imagination, so it was an intense challenge to refer to real images, especially when I am not a portrait artist, I did my best! Is not photo realism and I hope the client won’t be expecting that. In this painting, she requested a bunny because that is what she calls her boyfriend, and his nick name is boo boo. so cute. that is why I put a bandaide on her arm, where she has a boo boo! cute hahah thank you NIna! hugs

    This is really fun. I love the background, especially the trees. The soft palette is beautiful and I just marel at the way you handle “eyes” – the highlights bring them to life.
