White Rabbits?

Isn't that what you're supposed to say on the first of the month?....anyone know why? I have no idea!
But here's two I made earlier! They are made from plain old calico, stuffed and then painted with two layers of gesso and three to four coats of acrylic paint. They now feel like old leather and are ready for their finishing coats.

Which will hopefully be before the first of next month!

I looked it up on wikipedia and it's something to with the superstition that rabbits are lucky. Wiki says 'rabbit rabbit' is more common but to me that's Chas n Dave LOL
I think your naked, blank faced rabbits look rather sinister so look forward to seeing them finished.
