Some Easter Bunny Art for my upcoming Marin Open Studios this May



I've been using some Photoshop Posterization Techniques on old photos of my backyard rabbit sculpture then adding him (his name is Sherman) into digital and paper collages.
From the top:
6"x 6" cradled board:  B&W Sherman Dreaming in Color
10" x 8" cradled board:  Bronze Sherman behind the Garden Fence.  Some of you might recognize one of the background collage elements - which was the photo below, taken in San Anselmo of a landscape reflected in the dirty window of a Drake High School student's car.  The fence cut out is from a separate double exposure photo.  Digitized Sherman, in the top two pieces, was printed on some nice Epson Metallic Photo Paper Luster, cut out and glued.
The 3rd pink and purple image of Sherman in the Garden is a digital collage of a different posterized Sherman photo, superimposed on a pen & ink and watercolor painting of a park in downtown San Anselmo, with a photo of some cherry tomatoes added in for flavor.  It is available as a 13 x 19 or 8 1/2 x 11 print on fine art paper.
