Rabbits in Space

In case you missed my last post with those adorable movies, go back to it RIGHT NOW and watch them. I loved the artist so much, that I became momentarily obsessed with her Etsy site, and couldn't decide what to buy. Of course, every time I marked something as a favorite, then milled over it, it was sold when I came back! Like this sweet ACEO and this bunny among the stars.

Like many people (I assume), I love original art (as opposed to prints), and I wanted to get a set of paintings for my son's room that had this rabbit in space. Well, she had this print (not the original) of a bunny in a space suit in outer space that I fell in love with, and she and I had some back and forth emails about it. The NEXT day (I kid you not), she painted this pair of paintings JUST FOR ME (okay, actually for my son) that were just perfect:

I purchased them on the spot, and now I'm just waiting for them in the mail. I love Etsy! I'll let you know how they turn out matted and framed on his blue walls...

The artist's name is Nakisha Elsje VanderHoeven, and her shop is called bluedogrose. You can also see her work on her personal website, Go now!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
