  1. We visited the Chickasaw Cultural Center in Oklahoma today while on a mini vacation. We are from Missouri. While in the gift shop we found an original work of yours featuring a rabbit. Our 13 year old daughter raises and shows rabbits and so we loved the piece and purchased it. Can’t wait to get it framed and hung up!
