B is for Bunny, T is for Trouble: the Trouble with Bunnies

Folks always assume an artist can draw Anything.

Ím here to tell you that’s Not So.

See that bunny up there?

That´s my 10th bunny today, or somewhere thereabouts. Or would that be Thereabunnies?

Yoúd think something so absolutely adorable, soft, round and squishy would be easy to draw….but not just draw it, but make it Look adorable.

Earlier versions of that bunny were not particularly adorable or attractive, and certainly not something folks would want to color, put on their cards and send to family members for Christmas.

Ím just glad this particular bunny finally decided to cooperate or Íd probably still be sitting here trying to figure out how to get him to.

And that’s the Trouble with Bunnies.

Bunny Doodles

It’s almost Easter! Time to break out your Easter-themed arts and crafts and get hoppin’!

Spring is here!

So let’s all cheer!

Let’s all say Hurray!

‘Cause it’s a happy Springy Day!

I’m not quite sure what it is with my fascination with bunnies, bees and clover recently. It must be a Spring Thing after being cooped up inside the house all winter. We’ve had an awful lot of snow and some sub-zero temps.

This cute little bunny is sharing a big bouquet of spring’s first batch of tender green clover with a little fairy friend. She looks rather hesitant, as if she’s uncertain as to whether he would like for her to eat it or use it as a bouquet. It might be a bit of both, since you’d share your food with someone you care about, right?

I’ve included two images, one that can be used as a digital download or coloring page, and the second can be used as the same, but includes spaces for addressing it to Someone Special from You!

For You From, Sherry West, SherryWestArt, 2019

This image has an area for you to write in the name of Someone Special you’d like to give your colored image to.

Here’s a FREE adorable digitally downloadable printable jpg file (300 dpi) for you to use in your St. Patrick’s Day and Spring crafting projects – scrapbooking, digital stamping, cardmaking, papercrafting, journaling, albums, gift tags, adult coloring, stickers, and more!

Have A Duck y St. Patrick’s Day!

Bunnies love clover!

We live in a big old fixer-upper house on a hill by a river, with a large yard chock full of clover. Darling wild little cotton-tail bunnies hop and rabbit-trail all over the yard in search of dainty morsels that spring from the grass each morning.

Their white cottony little fluff-ball tails bob up and down as they hop to and fro across the yard. The kids and I all yell “Bunnies!!!” if one of us sees one so we can run to the window to watch them.

They are wild bunnies, so they are woodsy-colored with their variegated brown and gray coats, but their tummies and tails are creamy white and as just as cute as they can possibly be.

Always on the lookout while they eat, they sometimes sit straight up with their ears tall and erect, barely moving.

We had the great good fortune to take care of a baby bunny that our cats were about to have for their supper. We tried to leave it underneath the bush where the mother bunny had left it, but the cats always watched us. For the safety of the baby, we brought it indoors and raised it. In the springtime, it was large enough to release outdoors safely.

We were all very sad to see our little bunny go, but that was where he belonged, and we were glad we could help him get through the winter.

Every now and then, we drive into town in the evening. When we return home and go up the drive, bunnies invariably dash out of the bushes up the long drive-way, scattering in all directions, with their little white tails bobbing up and down in the headlights. We yell “runny bunny!,” and everyone gets terribly excited, adults included.

Since we live out in the outer areas of a small farm town, our place is surrounded by fields of corn, hay and soy beans – a bunny haven. This is what we have fondly (although unofficially) renamed our home – “Bunny Haven.” And, it really is.

Bunnies    

                  Sherry West                  

Morning dawns for the clear fresh day –

Drowsy bunnies dart out to play.

Mama nibbles in a clover bay;

Cotton-tail nestlings, so blithe and gay,

Tag one another, then dash away.

Afternoon sun in bright array –

In quiet, cool burrows they placidly lay.

Evening’s pale moon draws near to stay –

Joyous little bunnies

Caper, leap, frolicking, play.
