Rusty Rabbit

Rusty Rabbit, 9x12" oil, plein air, Diane Mannion
Aiken SC Garden 

Garden commission painted on location in beautiful and historic Aiken SC.  So much eye candy, so little time to paint, but pleased with this one.  Wonderful way to spend an afternoon, painting with pleasant company, wine and cheese, and a well-mannered pooch.

Rusty Rabbit! What a great title.
I think this is a wonderful painting and you made the sunshine the star by mixing the perfect shadow colors.
As I said - a wonderful painting.

Hi Diane,

Just wanted to say you captured the spirit of my tiny, wild garden. I love your perception of all the colors and objects lying about.

Thank you too for the compliment to Bella.

Thanks so much!
