Ralphie Rabbit features in every Jigsaw Puzzle
I paint little Ralphie Rabbit into every one of my jigsaw puzzles. He has become my lucky rabbit.
When we moved into our barn, which is in the middle of a field, we were inundated with rabbits coming into the garden. They ate all the juicy saplings we had planted while we were trying to establish a lovely garden from meadowland.
We tried lots of ways to deter them, including catching them in a humane trap with tasty food, and taking them five miles up the dales and releasing them on the heather covered hills. Apparently, it needed to be at least five miles because rabbits can find their way home at a lesser distance.
Although the rabbits caused a lot of trouble and probably cost us a lot of money to renew the eaten plants, we did find it fun. So, as rabbits seem to have become a part of our lives, I just felt they needed to be featured in my artwork.
