white rabbit for a fresh new year: artist francine

image copyright and by kindest permission of the artist
Netherlands artist Francine states "My inspiration is nature, simplicity and zen."  Here is her watercolor "White Rabbit," a perfect summation of all three.  She's built this beautiful animal from careful washes of color suggesting rather than trapping volume.  Yet the rabbit's alert head and eye tells us here is a creature very much in the moment, as rabbits do need to be and as we should be more often.  You should take a moment to check out Francine's excellent squirrels and birds, and all her work, at her Etsy shop Francina Maria.
