(click on the image for a nice close look at the paintiing)

I've finished my latest little painting. This is the border design for our children's book:"Duncans Magic Garden". This is an 8"x10" mixed media - India ink, colored pencil, and watercolor The final painting will include this ornate border and will frame the oh so adorable, shiny black bunny; Duncan. For now I've added one of my other bunny paintings to give you a sense of how this will all look together.

Duncan and his bunny clan are known as the "Fabbitz" (as in the Fabulous Rabbits)!

Below is a portrait of Duncan's sibling:

This bunnie's portrait was done as a miniature painting, also known as an (ACEO).

Below are the Fabbitz enjoying their big birthday bash!:

Nice job on the border, Melody. Great wood texture and leaf shadows. I like the details of the nails and area under them. Not to mention the incredible bunny!!!
