Texas Blue Bonnets to Texas Blue Bunnies!


Rainbow

Fine Arts League member, Sherrell Hazlewood, has a
knack of giving animals their own personality in a painting.
In fact, he says, he prefers painting animals to people.

Although Sherrell has created various kinds of artwork
over the years, his "Texas Blue Bunnies" series had their
birth around 1987 when the Hazlewoods (wife is artist,
Theda Rhea) moved back to Coleman. Seems as though
everyone was painting blue bonnets. The feeling of kinship
with illustrators of Uncle Remus, Winnie the Pooh, and
Peter Rabbit led Sherrell into the world of a combination of
"stories" illustrated with mostly animals. The rising star,
though, was the "Texas Blue Bunny".

Hazlewood’s first Texas Blue Bunny painting was a field o
f
Blue Bunnies intermixed with blue bonnets.   The history of
the origin of the Texas Blue Bunny is explained on
Sherrell’s web site:   http://www.texasbluebunny.com.


Hazlewood also has created a "star piece" for the
Coleman Public Library project sponsored by the Fine Arts
League of Coleman County. On a large canvas sits a
large, very matronly looking Blue Rabbit, be-spectacled,
holding a book entitled “Famous Texas Blue Bunnies”. She
appears to have captured the attention of three little blue
bunnies with her reading. In the distance is the majestic
Santa Anna Mountain, so we know it took place in Coleman
County!
