Another Distinguished Gentleman ~ The Lodge Hare

It seems like forever since I last posted here, and an update is long past-due!

It's Springtime here in Portland, and a lovely day is unfolding outside the studio.  I've been busy here, and projects have been developing, art is being made, and an actual show is planned for late June, or early July. That should be fun, featuring many of my miniatures of animals and anthropomorphic characters. It'll be at The Painted Lady, in Milwaukie.

I'm blessed with the opportunity to really become the artist I've always wanted to be, and to have a number of good friends and family who have supported me along the way. I'm also damn happy and honored to have a wonderful woman in my life. She (for some unfathomable reason) loves me, in spite of my sometimes weird and nutty ways.

I'd like to introduce my latest character: The Lodge Hare. His history and other details is being researched, and shall be revealed at the appropriate time. He was first seen in my artists journal. From there, he became the hare we see in the portrait below. Many more of works similar to this are in the works, so stay tuned!

I also have a new webpage, titled: The Art of Mark R. Hansen. It's a work in progress for sure, but check it out!
