Peace, Love, and Bunny Ears #4

A posterized self-portrait in white, black, grey, teal, and salmon on a stark white background. A woman’s hand, white outlined in hot pink, is raised in a peace sign gesture just behind the artist’s head to form “bunny ears”. A green heart, outlined in black, hangs precariously from the woman’s index finger.

A posterized self-portrait in white, black, grey, teal, and salmon on a distorted sage background. A woman’s hand, white outlined in hot pink, is raised in a peace sign gesture just behind the artist’s head to form “bunny ears”. A burst of light and color appears just behind the woman’s hand and emanates towards the edge of the piece.

Peace, Love, and Bunny Ears #1

A posterized self-portrait in white, black, grey, teal, and salmon on a sunburst background of yellow, orange, and red rays alternating with black. A woman’s hand, white outlined in hot pink, is raised in a peace sign gesture just behind my head to form “bunny ears”.

The Peace, Love, and Bunny Ears series was inspired by Jules at julespgsite. The original image is from a snapshot of my daughter and I in costume at a local Halloween celebration.

I had altered the image for use as a tee shirt design. Jules promised to buy one if I altered the image further to include her hand behind my head in a peace sign gesture, thereby giving me bunny ears. This is the image she sent:

Four designs were produced as a result. In the final two images, the green heart was originally placed in between the two fingers near the tips. Jules suggested I move it so that it looked as if it were “trickling” down one finger. Methinks Jules is one very talented lady. 🙂
