THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
In the Fantasia Andina 8 painting, two whimsical creatures have been depicted. Appearing to be rabbits, bunnies are typically associated with abundance and procreation, with prosperity and desire. Depicted in this image are two rabbits, one appearing to be much older, perhaps a parent figure, to the smaller one. In their fur are rainbows of color, perhaps suggesting the life inside of these beings that drive them to produce offspring and better the world. Its prominent use of red suggests a passion for life, and that is made clear by the way both the older and younger bunnies share the color.
