And forget not 

that the Earth delights

to feel your bare feet

and the winds long 

to play with your hair

…….Kahlil Gibran

When I was a child I had two pet rabbits. Their hutch was kept in the garage during the winter. One snowy morning I looked out a window in the front of our house and saw my miniature dachshund Hannah running down the street along side one of my rabbits holding onto one of his ears with her mouth. She had rescued the rabbit from the perils of escape we shortly found the second rabbit on a neighbor’s back porch stoop. Catastrophe averted. There were no leash laws nor animal permits many years ago. Also house and car doors were not locked. I was permitted from a very early age to spend the day alone in the woods. I wish that I could give that experience of peace and joy to my grandchildren. Sadly children today must be protected from the possibility of dangerous adults.

Story has it that the Buddha, embodied as a hare, threw himself in a sacrificial fire to the god Indra. He was rewarded with eternal life as the moon. There is also this little creature munching wild flowers with one eye toward predators. Here on the mountain it is parched in the summer. However there are lots of spots in the shade where these delicate wild flowers grow sparsely. Such an anomaly. It is so sweet to find these flowers blooming on a hot and dry summer day.

He has changed his clothes and is sporting a fresh set of winter whites. This makes him quite invisible in the snow. Better not run though. In the summer he wears brown which will serve as camouflage for the warm season.

The hare as one of the Chinese zodiac signs gives one born under the sign the powers of the moon. Hare can be a most relaxed animal when it is sleeping. I love the way they stretch way out with their legs behind them. I have shared space with a number of rabbits. They all have very different personalities just like dogs and cats.

 

 

jackalope

A jackalope is a North American mythical rabbit with antlers. I was inspired to paint this because of my latest critter adventure on Sunday morning.

 

I was walking with my dogs early in the morning when I heard crashing in the bushes. During the next 3 seconds I could only consider that there was a bear approaching…very fast. The thoughts of the bear were undoubtedly due to my previous recent encounters with Donald’s bear. Out of the woods right in back of me burst a hugh buck. He was flying like Santa’s reindeer. Great bounds high into the air. He hardly seemed to touch ground. My dogs took off into the woods in hot pursuit. Of course they couldn’t have even caught up with him. He was in his prime and going at top speed. The dogs will always try. Quite a sight and I was ever so glad that it was not the bear.

Peacemaker

For some reason my scanner refses to pickup the correct color of the background. The scan shows medium gray but the color is actually a lovely blue/gray. I mix all my colors and I think that the scanner has separated the hues leaving out the blue. I have never seen this happen before. So…the painting background is much prettier than as shown.
