It’s not like I decide I will now paint a rabbit with a smile or a scowl, or ears pointed this way or that, they just flow. It’s like a snowstorm, where each snowflake is different; this is a blizzard of bunny-flakes.
- Hunt Slonem
I first discovered Hunt Slonem a few years ago while taking a long walk through the interwebs. I fell head over heels in love with his colorful, neo-expressionist-style bunny paintings and his bold, mod, stacked bunny sculptures. I have been dreaming of creating a Slonem tribute project for a long time. I am thrilled that this long-standing day dream has finally come to fruition. Just in time for Spring, Easter and HOP FEST! When I was developing this project I could not decide if I should go or bunny portraits or bunny sculpture..so I decided to do both. You can read all about Hunt and check out his stunning work here. Hunt also has a super fun Instagram account.

gold paint. we used this one. It is beautiful but definitely not kid friendly. I reccomend this one or this one for use with kids age 3+ (acrylic paint stains and you must supervise young kids so that they do not get it in eyes, nose or mouth)
