*I was asked for the story behind this image, making me think.

Pussy Willow House is the 4th in a series of prints and paintings of women in white dresses with animals. This series came after another series I did with women and animals, although the women were nudie! I did not want the focus to be on the nudie-ness of this new series, so I put them in white dresses.

What is it about? Safety comes to mind. Are women ever truly safe? Is the bunny a man? Is a house made of Pussy Willow’s a safe place? I love Pussy Willow’s, they are soft and furry, like a bunny, but the word “Pussy” strikes a nerve.

And as always, “L’amour, l’amour, toujour l’amour!” Who wouldn’t be in love with a bunny dancing with you like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers? Is loving an animal taboo? Is a woman being the size that fits into a bunny’s arms a dream come true?
