Rabbit Painting

rabbit series - smaller paintings by Tim Thayer
Start of a new series of smaller gouache and watercolor works. I'm looking at balance here - and all that might mean within a painting (balance of composition, light/dark, etc.). I find the rabbit to be an odd character/metaphor - it's symbolic sexual meaning combined with cuteness --- but I also find them a little menacing (maybe it all stems from Monty Python and the Holy Grail???). These rabbits are also have a direct connection to the introduction of Henry in Milton 5.0. And a minor connect to the Updike character. This one is available at our Etsy Shop -- 20bucks.
