interesting, because it seems just a rabbit, and the italian for rabbit is "coniglio", that is pronounced similarly to konijn....in italian the group "gl" is pronounced....mhhhhh...difficult to explain, english has no words with that sound.......duhduhduh....
Hihih Nijntje is a good and sweet name
Toen ik nog konijnen had, hadden ze de namen: Hangoor or was it Flappie [I was 2 years then, it was my first rabbit] Than we have Witje and Stampertje [from that movie Bambi ] and 2 name I forgot
No need to be ashamed, it's simply a beautiful picture! I know realism isn't really your cup of tea, but the colours, the light, the shape of the konijn... are all great! Now move it to your gallery.
