Bird's Eye View-Jersey Wooly Rabbit

I like taking pictures looking down on animals, or of people and animals with their backs to you, unaware of your presence, deep in thought or conversation. Me, just observing a private moment.

This colored pencil 4" x 4" miniature, Bird's Eye View-Jersey Wooly Rabbit, took second place in the second annual Small Works, Big Presents juried show sponsored by the White River Valley Museum in Auburn last Fall. The jurors commented, "A common subject portrayed from an interesting angle, expert pencil work, color balance as well as a good framing choice make this sophisticatedly cute Jersey Rabbit a top award winner.  The uncommon angle abstracts the artwork, causing the viewer take a closer look and study the small details of this small artwork.  In a society that values big, this small work shows that good things do come in small packages."
