Life lessons presented in Aesop’s seemingly harmless (but often macabre) fables were full of contradictions for me.  It was not the Goose’s fault to lay golden eggs but it cost her dearly, and who could blame the sheep for not noticing the wolf clad in their team uniform.  The story that resonated with me most was the Tortoise and the Hare.  I am not sure that “slow and steady wins the race” in anything anymore; it is certainly not the motto for Wall Street nor road-raging motorists, and it sure doesn’t apply to our consumer-driven mindset or the lack of environmental consciousness.

  1. Such lovely lovely, sweet, delicate rabbit drawings!

  2. love your rabbits, especially the second one 🙂

  3. I love the first one! It looks very alert and lively.

  4. Beautiful bunny drawings. Like what you have to say about our current world too.

  5. These are fabulous; they really have a wonderful texture to them. What size are these?…just curious…

    • The size of these drawings, as well as most in my IF posts, are usually no more than 2-3 inches in height or width. My eyesight is on the decline so I find my scale is affected…when I began this format in my sketchbooks years ago, the images were postage stamp-size.

  6. These are beautiful, ethereal little drawings. So well done.

  7. Cute bunnies 🙂 I have to agree with you about Aesop’s Tales, but we don’t have to sink to the same level as Wall Street. There’s more than one kind of success!

  8. Gorgeous bunnies, captured so naturally and with such elegance! :o)

  9. Amen to your comment on the fable of the turtle and rabbit!! hehehe.. The drawing you made of the bunnies are the sweetest thing!! About 4 weeks ago we had the chance to have a bunny visit us. He is still outside every day, we try to feed him so he will not eat our flowers (or all of them). I like the softness of that last drawing, reminds me of when we touch his back! Softness!!
