Bunny O'Hare

"Bunny O'Hare" original watercolor on paper 6" x 6" $195
 Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all doing better than I am today.  I'm feeling pretty SheetzuCacaPoopoo this morning, actually since we got back from our spring break vacation.  I drove the kids (including one freshly potty trained little boy) on an epic rode trip.  We went to Charleston, South Carolina, stayed a night with my Mom and Stepdad and then onto Springfield, VA to visit some friends and visit our Nation's capital. Stayed for 5 days then back to Charleston, SC and then home again, home again.  I think we overdid it, we're all sick and visiting the Dr, this morning:(

"Spring Bunny" original watercolor on paper 6"x6" $195.
Anyway, I did manage to finish this painting just in the nick of time:)  You are not experiencing deejavu this is an accompanying piece to my other painting "Spring Bunny".  Such a cute little guy.  I've never personally seen the Easter Bunny, who knows, he may be green:)  Just loved his reflective surface and that fun floral print.  I'm including my wip pictures.

I'm also working on some commissions and prepping for my first workshop.  Which still has a slot or two open if you're interested. Click here for details.  I did have a dream the other night that Ellen Degeneres and Anne Burrell came in and took over the workshop.  Can't believe I'm having workshop dreams a month out, you may have to peel me off the ceiling the week before:)
"Anticipation" original watercolor by Carrie Waller
I also do have some exciting news!  My painting "Anticipation" was chosen to be included in North Light Book's Splash 14.  How cool is that!  There were artists that submitted paintings and they chose 106 artists to be included.  When I looked at the list and saw the names included I really thought there must be a mistake that my name was on the list.  Pretty surreal:)

See you Friday:)

  4. Sorry you are sick, but that will pass. On the other hand, I'm so happy for you - your career is taking off! How exciting! Keep up the good work, and remember us "little guys" when you get to the top!

  5. Congratulations Carrie! And I love bunny number two! He is gorgeous and the clever way the parttern is reflected - what a great idea. I really hope you are all feeling better soon! I suggest lots of chocolate - that'll put a smile on your faces :0)

  6. Congratulations on,'Anticipation' - one of my favourites, I've been on and on about it for ages :0).

    I've just been designing a website for my 'mad' Magician friend ( - now he has been pulling things out of hats for ages ... but nothing compared to the magic you use in pulling Bunny O' Hare out of that paper. It really is magic ... did you have to say a spell over it as you paint? ;0)

    Hope you are feeling better, Carrie
