Artist's description:

I am currently exploring British animals and their roles in shaping our mythology. Since their introduction to Britain by the Romans hares have had an important part to play in our stories and legends, whether it's the Cornish White hare or Alice's Mad Hatter.

The link between the hare and it's literary importance is symbolised by my use of an antique book cover as my painting ground. The cover is over a hundred years old with beautiful tatty corners and areas of wear and tear. The hare itself is painted in acrylics and I have initialled the front and signed the back.

The painting is unframed, it will be presented in a clear cellophane bag, supported by a backing board and I will of course wrap it and protect it during transit but please handle it carefully as the book cover is fragile.
