Jackrabbit Slim





This was a fun little guy to make. I used local wool from a little Shetland sheep that lives in Palmer named Shiska. Her beautiful, course wool gave JR Slim a very primitive feel. I think he looks so proud against his gorgeous background. The photos were taken outside my home studio. I listed JR Slim on eBay and he is now in his new home in Texas where he is the newest member of a rabbit collection. He was my first attempt to sell any of my work on eBay and I was happy to see that I had two people bidding on my creation. I was so nervous sending him off but the new owner loves him! So that was fun and really inspired me to get busy with some new works.
