"I inked it in black then experimented with wiping some brown on.  Only did 5 of these. Jack rabbits and Bush rabbits (Cottontail) were on our farm in Saskatchewan. I've always admired Jack rabbits for their speed, and Bush rabbits for their ability to hide and be still. Bush rabbits are very good to eat in summer or fall. I don't eat them any more, partly from guilt. In this picture I wanted to show how beautifully these animals move. When they scoot, they are up in the air quite a bit."  RY
