I didn’t know Clara at all when I was commissioned to paint this portrait.   Before I started I asked Clara’s grandmother to tell me something about her granddaughter. She told me that Clara was a typical Gemini, loved animals, climbing trees and baking cupcakes.  I can’t explain why I wanted to include rabbits, but I was totally surprised when I showed the completed portrait to Clara’s grandmother. She said ‘Clara used to have two white rabbits that looked just like that.
