Limited edition etching and aquatint printed on acid-free Fabriano paper.
The tiny print shows a young rabbit sitting in a garden beside a pond. A single flower has blossomed and the rabbit appears to be smelling the blossom, maybe considering whether to have a nibble. The clouds above are soft and fluffy and there is a feeling of contentment.

The tiny drawing was made with a very small etching needle so lots of intricate texture and detail could be created. It was drawn directly onto a metal plate that was coated with an acid-resistant ground and then etched in an acid bath. For each print, the metal plate is hand-inked and pulled through an etching press under high pressure. As the inking process is completed by hand, each print has slight variations - a unique piece of art.
