For those celebrating, I thought I would share a quick watercolor I did this weekend of a magical Easter Bunny.
A bunny that is THE Easter bunny would have to be magical right?
In doing a bit of quick internet research, I learned the Easter Bunny originated in Germany in the 1500s, and came to the United States in the 18th century through Protestant German immigrants in the Pennsylvania Dutch area (not far from me in Mars, PA!). They told their children about the “Osterhase,” who brought good children colored eggs, candy, and sometimes toys in nests they made in their caps and bonnets before Easter.
Whether you celebrate Easter or not, I hope this magical watercolor bunny brings a smile to your face and joy to your day.
Cheers & Hugs,
