Illustration Friday.... "Whiskers"

A backlit cottontail bunny with whiskers glowing in the early morning sunlight enjoys a tasty grape leaf at the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Gardens in Claremont, California.  

This is a watercolor painting on canvas that I painted several years ago after a visit to Southern California.  I used masking fluid to preserve the white of the whiskers and the sunlit edges of the rabbit.

Inka Says: Shop Small!

Today is Small Business Saturday, a day dedicated to supporting small businesses.  It's a great way to create jobs and support your community, simply by buying from local, independent, mom and pop small businesses in your neighborhood and/or online. 

 ...and now a word from The-World's-Cutest-Kitten-Known-To-Man-Woman-or-Wastebasket:

Thank you, Miz Inka Kitten for those thoughtful words. To celebrate, I am offering a 20% discount in MY small business, my Etsy Shop online.  Use coupon code HOLIDAY20 when checking out to get your discount on your entire purchase (excluding shipping costs and wholesale listings).  Offer good today through Cyber Monday, Nov. 26.

Both Delia and her fluffmonster Abercrombie shy away from loud people and barking dogs (or is it barking people and loud dogs?), 
but would love to have an amiable chat and a cup of tea with you. 

 Thanks for visiting!
