The Mojave Desert is home to desert cottontails as well as jackrabbits. Many people have mistaken the desert cottontail for a jackrabbit, because they do have larger ears than cottontail rabbits in cooler climates. However, they are easily identified by the white, round tail and their size. They are much smaller than jackrabbits!
I witnessed these two cottontails giving each other a quick little kissy-sniff. About a second after the kiss, one of them jumped straight up in the air and hopped off! Love is like that, isn't it? ;)
This painting was done on a deep edged, gallery wrapped canvas measuring 12 x 24 x 2.5 inches. The background was painted in acrylic, and has a nice subtle texture. The cottontails were painted in oil.
This painting is wired and ready to hang on your wall!
It is an original, one of a kind piece of art that you will enjoy for years to come.
