Image of the Day: Bunny Prince Charlie

"Ideas for paintings came from all sorts of nooks and crannies and inspired happenchance.  I remember one day we were looking through a travel guide to Scotland.  Turning the pages, we came across a painting of the rather infamous Scottish heir to the British throne, Bonnie Prince Charlie.

"I could sense the creative wheels turning.  "Hmm..you know," he said, "maybe with a carrot sword…wouldn't Bugs look great in that prince outfit?"

"And so, on canvas, appeared the ever self-confident Bugs, magnificent in his coat of crimson, a portrait titled Bunny Prince Charlie."  –Marian Jones, writing in the foreword to "Stroke of Genius, A Collection of Paintings and Musings on Life, Love and Art by Chuck Jones".
