painting of friends

Gwenn Seemel
Bunny kisses
2014
acrylic on canvas
25 x 37 inches

This is a portrait of me with my dear friend Claire, whom I first painted in 2005. At the time, I was doing a lot of paintings of friends. They were willing subjects, and I needed to build my portfolio! This piece as well as this one were also part of that process.

Claire pointed out that there are twelve bunny ears depicted in this painting, one for each year we’ve been friends. I love the way art takes on different meaning with each person who sees it.
