Tom Lybeck Original Bunny Trails

Bunny Trails

Telling someone that they’ve gone down a “bunny trail” is a kind-hearted way to let them know they’ve gotten off track.

This is what Robin and I were trying to tell life the year this painting came to be. Everything felt chaotic, especially with family and work issues. We yearned for a break, a time to hit the open road and drive. But that was not to be. Instead, I found peace in painting about our yearning. It was calming to bring a sun-washed world to life on a once blank canvas. When I told Robin the title, she laughed in delight. It was our private joke about a year we were glad had drawn to a close, thankful we had survived the lessons it taught us.
