The Surprise

This is my latest painting in the class I'm taking with Wyanne. *waving at Wyanne!* Ooh, I got busted recently. She visited my blog and read my little comment about using the last painting (Scarred: see last post) as a substitute for the assignment to do THIS painting. Ha! She knew I was just kidding, though.  ;)

We were to paint whatever the word surprise meant to us. That was the assignment. Oh, that one had me stumped. I even went so far as to Google the word surprise just to get some ideas... pathetic, I know. But I started thinking about recent events and little surprises. And here's what I came up with:

I've met some awesome people on the internet. And starting tomorrow, as a matter of fact, a very special friend is launching a new artist's site called the Rabbit's Den. It is going to be so cool! And it's not just for artists. It's also for writers and poets...just check it out! So, here is what I was trying to show in my painting:  As I dance through my life, down my little path, every once in a while I come across some very special people. And this friend has certainly been a very welcome and pleasant surprise!

I love rabbits! They are always a nice surprise when they hop out. I can't say I've danced down too many paths, though. But if you're recommending it, I might give it a try.

I went to check out the Rabbit's Den, but it said by invitation only. Oh my. You must belong to an exclusive group!

I adore this. And I am certainly glad I was on your path. You've made my own journey all the more perfect by sharing it with me.

And Bill, tomorrow (the 1st) the Den will be open to all so you can come and check us out! We're still ironing out the wrinkles and fluffing up our petticoats today!

She looks happy and carefree (love her outfit) and what a wonderful omen running across a curious rabbit! This piece has a magical quality to it; a sense of surprise and whimsy. Would her name be Alice?
