My White Rabbits are taking OVER my little mind!

They're grouped for a reason....they seem to be communicating with each other. I realise that this sounds nuts && you know ?-you're probably right there! Jim arranged them this way on my easel all ready to greet me in my new studio space....all eyes were upon me when I walked in! My delicate mind is being taken over by the desire (I believe that that word 'desire' should have a 'z' in it, don't you?!)to paint this character ALL THE TIME! Things have GOT to alter. Balance is vital & must prevail!

You've seen the 'Nasty' little guy before & the other two are new to the world. I've got these White Rabbits hopping all around the world at moment one in Spain with Juame, One in Denmark with Kirsten, One inAmerica with Alicia, three in the Uk with Martin, Anna & Jonah & and a couple here in Ireland one with somebody you may all know but I can't say hehehe.

Yep I've moved to Archway Studios (check it out)about a five minute walk around the corner from my house literally! I'm so thrilled that there was a space available for ME!. I made the decision to move mainly based on GUILT as although my other studio was in a really funky location with stuff going on there I just couldn't get it together to GET there each know..a bus and a fifteen minute walk. Most times I didn't arrive 'til late evening . Then I was hungry! Then I just wasn't in the mood & it was on my mind that I had to do the journey back again! So I couldn't justify having it/the cost it incurred when I didn't really use it that much. Anyway I'm peachy now thankyou very much!

Hi Rainey, congratulations with your new studio and Happy New Year!!

Love your rabbit pals - I´m sure they are having a nice time telling each other funny stories...!

Read your last post, too and laughed my head off when you explained why your chin is not in the first picture....I could write books about unwanted facial hair, lol! Guess that´s the price you pay for big dark, curly hair!!

Love your coat, by the way.

See you, Kirsten

Happy New Year.

As far as I'm concerned you can paint a million of your white rabbits as I absolutely adore them! Congratulations on the move, Rainey! I'm sure the quick commute will do wonders for you and your work!

I'll be visiting your shop soon & I'm excited to see if you've any new stuff. Do you knit red ? I love red..especially that vintagey red -orangey pinky red. Me & Colour!I could waffle on and on and on and I DO!
Thanks Tami, I am looking forward to playing as you say as soon as I can get up the hill to the door! It's hilarious I can get so far and then I slide back on the thick ice!
Thanks Kathy . I play that music especially for YOU!

Hi again, I´m going to upload new stuff soon, and I can see if I find red yarn in the right vintagy colour and knit something for you... Just get in touch if you have something special in mind!

Sisley make nice stuff, do you know the Danish brand Noa Noa? I think you might like their stuff! It´s my favourite brand, take a look here if you don´t know them!

See you, bye Kirsten
