Whimsical Wednesdays ~ The Artist’s Corner: The Magick Rabbit Storybook Art


Moonlight Whispers & Astrid.jpg

As promised, today’s Whimsical Wednesdays brings to you a peek into my “Artist’s Corner” with the first look at some new little whimsical paintings Astrid and I have been working on in our free time. Astrid was right that 12/12 would be the reveal and so without further ado, I’d like to show you what the two of us have been up to lately in Wonderland here.

If you’ve been following along for a while, you likely recall the evolutionary journey my paintings and drawings have gone through over time, but this fresh flow of creativity has truly been the most enjoyable for me, as they come straight from my inner child and blend together my imagination with what Astrid sends me.

We call this collection “The Magick Rabbit ~ Storybook Tales of Wonder and Whimsy Come to Life.”

The images you see here are straight off the press, as they say – just quick snaps from my cell phone for now in order to share them with you.

They’re also Astrid approved, as you can see. 😉

I love how she embraces them and even recognizes herself in The Empress, which I created as a whimsical version of her as a Tarot Card, and gives it a straight-on kiss!

And in Bedtime Stories, she goes straight for the little dark bunny that looks like her! Too cute!

I intend to get them professionally photographed/scanned here shortly, which will capture the detail and color much better than I can in most cases, and will then be able to make more fun stuff available to you.

I want to stick to small sizes, as these are meant to be fun for me, easy and quick to execute so that they mimic childhood memories of when I used to sit down at the kitchen table as a little girl with my French Grandpa drawing throughout the Summer on my grandparent’s long visits with us.

They’re pure joy and imagination flowing through what I love most – rabbits!

And in keeping them this way, I can also make artwork like this, accessible for many.

While I keep a creative channel of energy flowing in balance to the other things in my life I need to focus more left-brained on.

These original 8″ x 10″ paintings on canvas boards will be available, alongside prints and other fun items like greeting cards, journals, etc. with these images on them.

In this way I can offer affordable storybook windows that rekindle the wondrous heart of your inner child – portals to harness sweet magick into your everyday life.

I’m not sure that I’ll have the other items available before Christmas, but these originals might be up in my new Etsy shop soon.

Eventually, I’ll create more of these 8″ x 10″‘s (and perhaps some other fun smaller canvas board sizes) in my spare creative time, but the next collection will be a little bit different – I’ll share what I mean when they’re ready! I see them in my/Astrid’s minds’ eyes, but I never know what is going to come out until it does!

What I love is that there’s no thought involved. The magick just happens in surrendering to the inspiration.

I can’t tell you how wonderful and fulfilling it’s been to channel these first five rabbit-inspired, magickal pieces of art from the Faery Tales of my mind and the shared visions between Astrid and me.

They are little whispers of enchantment to infuse your life with a little magick and inspire your own inner child or a beloved child in your life.

While simple, like anything I create, it’s always infused with much more. And you can discover that meaning for yourself, each time you peer into these Faery Tale Windows.

There’s a storybook tale within each to reflect your journey, as the adventure it is – all shared through the heart of one Magick Rabbit and one Rabbit Faery.

For now, this is just a little introduction, as Astrid and I have been so excited about sharing these.

We’ll announce when my Etsy shop is ready, as I’m in process of rebirthing it after it being empty for years.

If you’re on Instagram, you may want to follow along, as I’ll be making shop update announcements there, as to when things will be available. In terms of originals, these will be first-come-first-served, so keeping your bunny ears tuned in will be key for those. I’ll also have giveaways and other fun things only available via Instagram.

We hope you enjoy this little peek into the world we’ve been walking in lately.

Let us know what you think.

  1. I love your illustrations we should collaborate together as I have a nature book….sort of like a good night moon feeling, gentle…and I need illustrations with other animals etc….let me know when your Etsy is up…love my mother mary Andara…I am on youtube on rocks and my near death experience and show the Andara I purchased from you 😉 check them out: Sharon J. Shadduck on rocks

    • So sweet of you Sherry!!! Thank you for thinking of me and the lovely words about my drawings. I will definitely check the video out. I’m so happy you love your Andara so much. She is a special one. Down the road I may be open to illustration collabs, but currently have a full plate balancing all my projects. So dear of you to ask 🙏 I’ll be announcing about Etsy here soon! Will keep you posted. Big big hugs

  2. I’m so glad I was able to pull these up. I’ve been waiting in anticipation to see these beauties. To me there is a very watery underworld feel to a few of these. But with vivid saturated Carribean colors. Absolutely precious and so endearing. I see Astrid and mom too. Enchanted work. Thank you for sharing the beauty of your two visions

    • You’re so sweet D!! You’re so right about that. I hadn’t thought about it until you said it, but there’s definitely a watery feel to some. I loved using such fun vibrant colors too, as it speaks to how my inner child sees things and reminds me of drawing and coloring when I was a kid. So fun that you see us in them! Hehe! 🤭😉 I so appreciate your message 😘

  5. The paintings are wonderful Tania! Full of whimsy, color, life, and magic. I can how they would be great tools to reopening childhood magic. I could also see them put together as a children’s book. Happy creating!

    • oh thank you so so much brad!! i really appreciate your reflections and especially love that you feel them to be doorways to that childlike world of wonder! warms my and astrid’s hearts ❤ such a sweet thought too about them as a children's book. i've long felt children's books in my future…so will be fun to see how things unravel. thank you dearly!! big hugs from us both!
