I did this painting a few weeks ago, right after my first white rabbit painting, “The Woobie Contemplates Revenge.”  From a strictly artistic point of view, I was interested in continuing painting white on white, and seeing what I could do with that.  I particularly like how fuzzy his fuzzy legs appear in the final work.  There’s more to this painting than just that, though.  I hope you can appreciate it.  We live in interesting times…

For one thing, I want gesture-any kind of gesture, all kinds of gesture–gentle or brutal, joyous or tragic; the gesture of space soaring, sinking, streaming, whirling; the gestures of light flowing or spurting through color. I see everything as possessing or possessed by gesture. I’ve often thought of my paintings as having an axis around which everything revolves.
