Beginning with bunnies. Of course.

This morning, Miss Zoe said to me: "It's a new year. Start a blog." (Above, you can see a re-enactment of the moment. In this picture, she has just finished speaking.) "It should be about art and mammals," she said. "It should especially be about rabbits," she added with a wink.

And so, on this first day of January 2009, as I sit comfortably in a warm house filled with mammals and art, sipping espresso and wearing my fleecy rabbit pants, that is my plan. To start a blog that is about just those things.

And because Miss Zoe specified rabbits as a particular area of interest to be written about, my first post will highlight one of my favoritest (the superlative needed to describe) Christmas presents ever from Christine (a.k.a. the BlissChick). These woolen bunnies:

They are tiny and cute and colorful and fun to hold and fun to kiss and, well... they are bunnies. They were made by Jennifer Hugon; you can get them at her Etsy store.

In a day or two, I will post a photo of my most recent pet portrait: a painting of (you guessed it) two beautiful rabbits named Petunia and Derby.

Welcome Marcy!! I love the bunnies! When I was a kid-o I had two bunnies myself: an all white bunny named Mucky and a black bunny named Mojo. They still visit me in dreams, and I miss them dearly. People laugh at me when I tell them how attached I was to them. Not until you experience bunny love for'll never know the magic! Your Miss Zoe is adorable! Can't wait to read more. Happy New Year!

I am so happy to read your blog! I love love love your paintings and can't wait to hear more about your art and inspiration.

I hope to one day have a real bunny of my own... i wonder how they will coexist with my spoiled cats?

Thanks for all the encouraging words, everybody!

Zoe sends a shout out to anyone who said she's beautiful. She wholeheartedly agrees on that point.

Cheers to all the bunnies mentioned, be they past, present, or future buns.
