Completed this painting last night. Based on a tattoo I saw in a photograph:
Did the background last month with acrylic and glitter. Didn’t know which direction to go until recently. It’s a pity the scan doesn’t show the true beauty of this piece.
From what I understand, this tattoo is based on an ancient English illustration going back 500 years. It’s a rabbit playing a Celtic instrument called the bodhran. Enjoy.
UPDATE: Just found out that the tattoo is actually a hare playing the tabor. Oops.
UPDATE 1/22/2013: This painting has now been sold.
