Girl Riding a Rabbit Illustration - White Rabbit Print - 8x10
This print is from a series of paintings I did based on Grimm's fairytales. This particular story is one of my favorites, if only because it seems like an awful, nonsensical dream. A girl is outside, tending to her mother's cabbages. She spies a rabbit nibbling at a plant, and tells him to shoo. He responds with a marriage proposal, and suggests she hop on his tail and come away with him. After many rebuffs, and many returns to the garden, she finally acquiesces (though the story never indicates why.) The girl hops on the rabbits tail, goes with him to his burrow and prepares for the wedding, and all the while the rabbit behaves like a complete brute. Eventually, fed up, she makes a straw dummy of herself and escapes. The rabbit attempts to wed the dummy, and its head falls off. The story ends with the rabbit mourning his dead bride. What did I tell you? The story makes no sense, and has no moral except to not ever listen to rabbits. Specifics: The print is reproduced from a painting by me, Katie Gamb. It is printed in-house on matte Red River Natural paper. It is acid-free, fade resistant and has a lovely, creamy texture. The image is printed on 8x10 paper, with a .125" border. My prints are made using Epson Pigment Inks, which are tested and guaranteed not to fade for at least 120+ years. All prints are signed by the artist, and arrive sealed in a cello sleeve with a recycled backing board. Prints are shipped inside a protective stiff envelope.
