Eric Sloane, Rabbits and Horses

Rabbit, Rabbit!
Happy 1st Day of the Month.

I love this charmer! It also happens to include my spirit animal, the rabbit. I have come across very, very few illustrations or paintings by Eric in which he painted a rabbit. Horses, yes – though Sloane admitted he had “…such difficulty with drawing horses’ legs that I usually compromised by having my animals standing in high grass”. {From Sloane’s Recollections in Black and White}. In “Winter”, those hooves appear to be obfuscated by snow. But that rabbit sure stands out!
