Elizabethtown is a charming town, with a beautiful cutie pie flower and gift shop. Smellie Bloomers on Broad Street, hosts a bounty of unusual and beautiful gifts, I call it “eye candy”. Next week I’ll be offering Valentine paintings and cards, in the mean time I need to say good bye to my Christmas paintings. Take a look, everything is 25% off, but this sale will not last long.

We have a couple of sweet spots in Bladen County, Lu Mil Vineyard and White Lake. Bladen County is fortunate to have both. “Taylor Green” is a little oil I painted on site at beautiful Lu Mil Vineyard in Dublin, NC. “Clearwater Duck” is a little oil I painted from a friend’s photo that she snapped last summer at Clearwater Campground at White Lake, NC. One more big landmark is an 8×10 oil painting of the “Wam Squam” located at the intersection of Hwy 53 and Hwy 701 at White Lake. “Warm Breeze” and “Windjam” were inspired by some beautiful sails at White Lake last summer.
Last week I dropped these jewels off at Smellie Bloomers, a beautiful and unique gift shop in Elizabethtown, NC.
You will also find a few Easter bunnies and mermaid necklaces in my new little display at Smellie Bloomers,
Hope you enjoy looking, let me know what you think.
Happy weekend!

Here is the second bunny in my Christmas bunny series. I thought you might enjoy a tutorial, Merry Christmas early!
Materials:
Professional Winsor & Newton canvas board
Acrylic paint in these colors: Liquitex Titanium White, Brilliant Purple, Indo Orange Red, Cadmium Yellow Medium, Cobalt Turquoise Light, Ultramarine Blue
Step one- with watery paint outline basic bunny shape
Step two- start blocking in shadows, I did not use white at this time, instead I mixed some browns with a few of the darker colors plus yellow
Step three-paint background with pretty turquoise and white
Step four-continue painting brown tones then add some white in your mixture for highlights
Step five-add an oval/ circular wreath with dark mixtures of the yellow and blue
This Christmas bunny is not finished yet, I will be selling this bunny rabbit series in November at a local gift shop, Smellie Bloomers in Elizabethtown, NC.

I am so excited to announce my new Christmas painting theme, it’s all about bunny rabbits this Christmas season. I used to think that Christmas in July was so not cool until I started painting seasonal subjects, now I understand the time and planning that must be done prior to Christmas.
I will be posting new bunny paintings each month before Christmas… Would like to hear from you.

Bunny painting tutorial

I hope you will enjoy this little bunny rabbit tutorial. I used Golden Open Acrylic paint but this can also be done with oil paints.
Would love to hear from you- have a great weekend!
1. Start outlining the bunny with thin paint
2. Begin blocking in shadows with pinks and purples
3. Shape up eyes with a smaller brush, I researched and studied several eyes first
4. Take time to mix a rich black, I used sap green, ultramarine blue and alizarin crimson ( or mix 3-4 of your darkest colors …..but don’t use black, mix your black, it is well worth the effort)
5. Paint dark black in the background-I wanted a strong contrast and thought the black would contrast with the white bunny
6, Add a layer of neutral creamy beige over the first layer of purple shadows
7. Mix a pretty light blue to accent and create more depth in the shadows
8. Use a nice liner brush to add that thin rabbit hair texture
9. “George”
