I'm working on some more Girl Bunny paintings and thought I would document and discuss some of the process and idea.   Girl Bunny is an acrylic painting which you can see the first painting by clicking here


Girl Bunny painting 2nd


With girl Bunny I wanted to approach something light hearted on the surface. In general  when people meet or see something for the first time there is only a surface they see until they look again or stick around to find out more.

That's what I've done with this small painting. Firstly one may just see a landscape, with a girl sticking out of a hole.  It either comes across funny with some kind of sense of humour or just plain odd.

Girl Bunny is in a desert popping out of holes in a sense in a search of something. There's a vast space that is filled with skinny trees with nothing but heart shaped fruit maybe?  Its seems that Girl Bunny is either at a loss or finding something that is hidden.

With this painting I just went with the composition and as I was painting, these ideas and thoughts came to me and I decided to create two other paintings to join the first.

With these paintings I would like to approach a sense of humour or the opposite.  But When I look at this painting it does put a smile on my face and I would rather leave it up to the interpretation of the Individual.

My aim is to have these paintings finished at the end of the week.

The first painting is being exhibited at the Phoenix Centre in Glasgow on the 27th of November and I want to get these other to join the first.

Wondering Rainie and Girl Mysterious will also be there. There will be other artists that will be exhibiting there work and a chance to meet them.  The  event is free so if you fancy a day in Glasgow pop in.  Did I mention I be there for most of the day too?
