Little Brown Rabbits in the Meadow Acrylic painting of a dream by Jenny Badger Sultan: 'Little Brown Rabbits in the Meadow '.


Dreamed 2009/3/20 by Jenny Badger Sultan

THE DREAM

We visit a friend. Her home is ramshackle, with trees growing right through the walls, in and out. But she invites us to see the glorious view out the window...

WHY RABBITS?

  1. I dreamed this on the Spring Equinox, a day when the Obamas announced they were putting in a vegetable garden at the White House. A celebration of spring, life, growth.
  2. Also, I'd been out walking in Chain of Lakes (in Golden Gate Park) and seen dozens of rabbits
  3. And I also saw Asian art depicting rabbits

--Jenny Badger Sultan

EDITOR'S NOTES

Jenny takes it for granted above that most readers will understand the traditional association of the equinox, Easter, fertility, and rabbits.

Also, remember that in the spring of 2009, after the endless political winter of George W. Bush, a lot of us in America, Christian or not, were thinking of new life and growth.

I also see a visual tip o' the hat here to some of the ukiyo-e artists, particularly Hiroshige; these sunlit rabbits have that rounded calm of Hiroshige's moonlit foxes.
