The Holidays


I love this time of year with all the eggs, chickens and bunnies. When little children come out in their Sunday best to find goodies hidden across the landscape.

Actually this is an old drawing that I recently decided to paint. I had another idea to do a cityscape painting infront of clouds like these with a warmer tone to it, but decided that a rabbit in front of clouds is just as good. I used Sam's amazing whale painting as a lot of guidance. I am pretty much a hack. Perhaps some day I will eventually find my style. I am like Pinoccio, "Someday I will be a real artist" and yet I still debate whether I should do more of an illustrative approach to this particular piece.

Your last few sentences about being a "real artist" describes me to a T as well. But despite this, when I look at your work, I see YOU, even though I'm familiar with the inspiration for this particular piece. Great image.

Yep, you're right. You are a hack and you should stop painting--for the love of humanity, please;)

This is awesome Adam. It's pretty hard to find one own style. It definetly takes time. The cool thing about you Adam is that you can do pretty much anything you want so no worry! :)

One thing if you don't mind: I was a little bit confused with the ears. I thought he was holding a surf board at first. I think it might just ba a value issue or something.

Another very cool piece. Stretching yourself, even in emulation, is learning. How many of us settle in a comfortable "style"? Having said that, I always feel that way about my stuff.

Best freaky rabbit ever. We were going to do a "Too Happy" topic a while back with rainbows, flowers, and dancing unicorns in every picture, and this would fit in perfectly.
