Rabbit PI

Rabbit P.I., 20" x 15", #8- to 8.5-cut wool on linen. Designed and hooked by LeAnn Hodgson/Camp Wool Designs, Kennebunk, Maine, 2013.

As the rug hooking years go by, I find myself seeking out new subjects, color combinations, and different styles of hooking. I am by no means an art aficionado, but I have always favored impressionism. Recently, a friend loaned me a book entitled Charleston: A Bloomsbury House & Garden (Frances Lincoln, 2004) by Quentin Bell and Virginia Nicholson. The book follows a very talented family and a group of artistic friends who lived in, visited, and decorated an English country home from 1910 into the 1950s. The entire house became a foil for their post-impressionist artwork. What I love about the style is the simple line drawings they start with and the gentle paint palette that swirls around the loose lines of the drawing. Thus the inspiration for Rabbit P.I. was born!
