"Ode to Durer" Make-up Painting

"Ode to Durer"
4x6" make-up painting in 8x10" frame

This make-up painting is based on my wood carving of the iconic Durer rabbit which I bought back in 1985 in Oberammergau, a small town in Bavaria, Germany known for its wood carvings and passion play.

It has lived on our mantel at home, and now resides in my studio as my muse.  One of his ears has been glued back on, but he is still handsome.

I tried to soften the rabbit up and make him look somewhat natural.  In reality, he is made up of many sharp angles and planes, from the marks of the woodcutter.
