Are you ready for Easter?

Posted By on Apr 5, 2011 | 4 comments


There are chocolates and bunnies and Easter decorations bursting out of the shops!  I can't believe how much merchandising there is for Easter (which I might say, has been building up only a few short weeks after Christmas!), is it like this where you live?

A great idea for an Easter wreath from Chocolate Candy mall

So, I 'll ask you..are you ready for Easter?  I have been building up my own collection of Easter decorations and celebration recipes for a few years now.  But I'm still waiting for the time to embroider a runner for my dresser, upon which all of my ornaments and decorations for Easter are placed...maybe next year!

Easter  is the most important religious feasts in the Christian liturgical year.  Many Easter cakes and desserts contain symbols and colours representing fertility (for the coming of Spring), new life, resurrection and Christ.  While many Christians and non-Christians alike celebrate this cultural event with Easter Bunnies, hot cross buns and chocolate eggs, there are many artworks,  traditional cakes and desserts that also celebrate the end of lent.

In this post I wanted to share with you some of my decorative artworks which I'd painted for our home the celebrate Easter.  Many of these decorations represent traditional parts of celebrating Easter for us, while I am Australian born, my family are Russian, German and Polish, and Hubby A is Hungarian...bit of a mix I know 😛

I wanted to make an Easter plate for my display, so I was inspired to use this lovely porcelain bunny I bought from Villeroy and Boch as the study, and place him with an Easter chick, using a Vintage German Easter style of painting.

Here is the Villeroy and Boch bunny (with some other handpainted eggs I've made)

I have an Easter egg tree, around 40 hand painted wooden eggs (see more painted eggs) and other various handpainted plates and decorations.

I hope you enjoy viewing some of  my Easter paintings.  Are you making anything special for Easter?
