Since the shape of the peapod is similar to a gondola, I decided to make the rabbits lovers - the girl a lop-eared with her ears long and romantic, like long tresses. The peapod boat has a canopy of pea leaves and a pea flower. The base is a piece of redwood burl that I cut from a slab I bought long ago. The grain resembles the swirling of water though the grain doesn't show up as much as I'd like.
The little sculpture is about 3" tall.
As for the SAA application, it turns out that I've missed the application deadline. Oh, well. Probably would have just been rejected again anyway!
