Bunny in a Bicycle Basket and Carrots, Oh My!
It’s good to be safely tucked into a basket surrounded by the most intoxicating food a rabbit could ever think of. Our chocolate is their carrots. You add being carried by a bicycle — the caring owner peddling and you have rabbit nirvana.
As I think about this, it reminds me of a communication I received today from BunnyFeathers Rabbit Rescue. “Your paintings & stories really brighten up our lives. Sometimes animal rescue is depressing & we need levity & beauty to balance our lives.” This got me thinking about safety for some and harshness for others—the daily realities. Both animals and people. And the people who dedicate their lives to making as many lives better as they can. How we rescue one another in small ways daily—uplift each other. There are thousands of ways. And the fight of cruelty for animals. For today’s painting, I just needed to pause on the image of the safe arrival of a rabbit in a bicycle basket surrounded by her favorite carrot cocktail saying, thank you.
