A bunch of incredible strokes of luck later, I wound up working in the most highly regarded glass studios in Seattle, WA. I had photographed light refractions through glass containers for years so even though this seems like a jump it really wasn't that far off.While I may not have any bunnies "on staff," I will back that up all day, Museum friends. And that was before I looked through her page's slideshow. Then I noticed her list of materials for the piece above:
Moving next to New York City, and the mountains of upstate New York, I focused primarily on my glass career.
THEN ALONG CAME THE BUNNIES!
They took over everything. I was ready to scrap my glass career to be able to stay home and play with them all day. I didn't really see a bright financial future in that plan, but they were so cute it didn't matter. Anyone who has bunnies should understand this and back me up.
Photography, White Angora Bunny, Nuage (the white bunny - curator), Mini Rex Rabbit, Bells (the brown bunny - c), Live Bunny Models, Spoiled Rotten Rabbit, Cageless Bunnies, Free Range Bunny Rabbits, stormy sky, dramatic clouds
It works. Rubinelli's medium is not only photography, but feeling, investment in these beloved creatures, and the technical and artistic ability to bring some of that inner landscape to share with you. Please have a look at her Etsy shop, and don't miss that slideshow.
