Lucky Blue by ART-fromthe-HEART Lucky Blue by ART-fromthe-HEART
:star: Prints Available! :star:

An experiment with color, blue can symbolize many things. The common thought is sorrow, but I don't see it that way. There is also tranquility, peace. It's endless, pure, even magical.

This was painted for my cousin, who's living in Raleigh for school. He had to leave his pet bunny, Lucky, behind. I've met Lucky, and he's not the peaceful rabbit he seems in the painting...in fact, he's a bit tempermental like a teenage child. But Lucky is at peace, being happy with my aunt, and waits the return of his human brother.

"Lucky Blue" 8x10" acrylic on wood. (C) Cara Bevan 2011

This is a lovely painting. I've heard that blue is also represents spirituality.

Veeeery beautiful this blue! Goes so well with his fur. The touches of yellow and green are highlighting it all. I always like the combination of a realistic portrait with colours which express emotion.

"Looking up from underneath

Fractured moonlight on the sea

Reflections still look the same to me

As before I went under

And it's peaceful in the deep

Cathedral where you cannot breathe

No need to pray

No need to speak

And it's breaking over me

Thousand miles under the sea bed

Found a place to rest my head

And the arms of the ocean are carrying me..." - Florence Welch

Well, that's part of the fun of experimenting. You don't know what the end-result will be. Might be crap, but might also be gorgeous. And in the case of Lucky Blue, it is GORGEOUS.

Personally I see Blue as a Tranquil color.That is the main reason it is my favorite color.
This is (as can be expected from you) a Great piece! I simply love the use of color and the pose of the subject!
Though the fur seem's a little course,but then not all bunny's are soft and cuddly.:)
Speaking of Bunnies,we have a Huge family of them running rouge in our neighborhood.So now our Beagle not only has Squirrels to chase during the day,He now has Bunnies to chase when the sun goes down.All of this gives me a Very sore arm,as I do not let him catch them much to His dismay.

:highfive: My thoughts exactly! Which makes it funnier that Dargon is red because you didn't want him to be confused. XD Although, red suits him very well. Hmm, yeah I think I painted his fur a little too rough...thanks for catching that! Painting soft fur is challenge for me when I get "shadow happy". Something to keep in mind for the next color experiment. ;) Aww yay wild bunnies! I hope they don't attract foxes...foxes love bunnies. Hawks do too though, those are neat to see. :D

Awww....Dargon thanks you! yes,I have grown so used to Him being Red,I can't imagine him any other color.:)

Yea,I haven't seen any Fox's yet but we DO have a few Hawks in the woods edge.Not to mention a bunch of rough kitty cats that belong to my neighbors.Poor Bunny's......seem's they have a lot more to worry about than our Fat little Beagle.;p
