Happy Be-lated Easter!

I was supposed to have her posted by Saturday but our Easter 'busy-ness' got in the way. This is Miss Esther Bunny. I've been trying to get her painted for a few years now and finally took the time since I had the extra pine boards. She's from the pattern collection of Mary Helen Gould. I painted her with different colors but am very happy with how she turned out. I wouldn't mind painting her again.
This is her front...
(she's missing her basket because I've been sick and unable to get to the store!)

...and yes, I painted her back!

Not something I do all of the time but Mary Helen does most of her work that way and she was just too cute a bunny not to.
Hope your Easter was a good one.
I'll have my Spring 'Giveaway' in one more week. Come back and visit and maybe I'll have that oil painting finished, too!

That's dalring. My mom used to make these (well slightly different). I used mine for years until it became too weathered. Hey - thanks for commenting on my tute over at Tatertots today!
