White Jackalope III by ursulav White Jackalope III by ursulav
The end of the year filled me with an intense desire to paint more curvy white animals on collaged paper.

You know, like it does.

6 x 12, mixed media on collaged paper sealed to board. I like how the background on this one came out. The shredded book pages are a very old copy of Dr. Spock, and if you look closely, they talk about prunes. I am told baby's first prunes are a terrifying experience for the person changing diapers. My boyfriend still gets a little grey around the lips at the thought.

Anyway, prints available at Red Wombat Studio: [link]

What a wonderful collection. :)

I have a little Squirrelope figure that was printed out on a 3D plastic printer..... my plans are to flock him in rich green 'turf' eventually. :)

This may be one of my favorites from the curvy white animals on collaged paper pieces (wow, try saying that one five times fast.) That's saying a lot, since I've really liked all of them.

I agree with you- the background came out really well on this one. It strengthens the composition, and looks cool without completely overpowering the jackalope. I would totally ask if the original is available if I wasn't a poor college student and thus perpetually strapped for cash :)

"Looking up from underneath

Fractured moonlight on the sea

Reflections still look the same to me

As before I went under

And it's peaceful in the deep

Cathedral where you cannot breathe

No need to pray

No need to speak

And it's breaking over me

Thousand miles under the sea bed

Found a place to rest my head

And the arms of the ocean are carrying me..." - Florence Welch

Lovely contrast between the white jackalope and that beautiful blue background, kind of like the first star at evening. Also like the contrast of the wildness of the animal against the very formal pattern of the paper.

My kid just spit the prunes across the room. They were the only thing he refused to eat. What you REALLY have to avoid at all costs, though, is anything containing poppy seeds...

I love the shapes in the rabbit. It almost looks like a cat--except it definitely looks like a rabbit. I'm not really sure what I mean to say. I suppose... It has the same "feel" as a cat, while being very definitely a rabbit.

I think that's as close as I'm going to get. At any rate, it's a wonderful effect.
