From the start two years ago until now...(I am allergic to stuffed animals)

Lost Bunnies
This first set of bunnies (actually two separate canvases) began as a lark.  I was goofing around trying to justify taking this beat up old stuffed animal from my nephew.  I figured the only way I could really justify behavior like that would be to paint of draw this old rabbit.  The paintings were just quirky enough that I had to do more with the subject.  So, as "bunny" was sitting in the studio,on a chair with some cloth hanging over it...
Cloth Bunny
I started cloth bunny right before the Bau Movement group show and I was tired of playing with text and stencils and I was feeling the need to paint again.  But then I had three bunny paintings.
Beach Bunny
This is a 30" x 44" charcoal and inkwash drawing loosely based  on some family members at the Jersey shore. The Jersey shore just happens to be the place where Smitty was a life guard.
Bunny und Wehrmacht- This needs no explanation.
Study for PzKpfb II (Panzerkampfbunny)
No explanations for the next pieces either.  Yes, the model "Tiger" tank and P38 are just laying around in my studio.
