This beautiful little hare was inspired by two things happening at around the same time a long held dream was coming into view. I had noticed that an organisation ‘Plantlife’ were speaheading a campaign to replant the wild meadows of the UK – and this subject connected with my heart deeply. At around that time, we moved our horses into a field near our home, and as we did so a hare led the way ahead of our car and led us directly into the gateway of the horses field, as if to offer a welcome and as though it showed us the way. Deciding to paint a hare, it came to me to put the wildflower meadow within its body – embodying its environment, and the connection between all things, the oneness.
This beautiful little hare has been placed on the South West Action for Hares website, it has received a ‘Wow!’ from the Director of Nature in Art in Gloucestershire, it has several links with the organisation ‘Plantlife’ – generally it has had a wonderful reception.
