Easter is coming! I love those old fashioned Easter chickens with the orange wire feet, the cute little black eyes and the fluffy pastel bodies.  This chocolate colored Easter Bunny is balancing three of these Easter chickens on his head as he sits in a grass filled Easter basket with colored eggs to match his chickens.

I used graphite pencil and watercolor to work up the composition and then switched to acrylic paint to finish this little aceo painting. It was given a couple coats of acrylic varnish for protection and will be sent to you in a clear sleeve inside a clear ridged holder.
