This painting is based on my love of old folklore. In ancient times many people believed that witches could transform themselves into hares and then go about their sinister works under cover of moonlight. The hare is a symbol of many things, both malevolent and benign, but with this painting I have loved exploring the mystery of moonlight upon soft wild fur and the opaque hues of the brooding moors behind the hare. I have used blurry brushstrokes beneath the hare's feet to give the impression of speed.
This painting is framed, but not under glass.
