Artist's description:

I have long had a fascination with Illuminated Manuscripts, especially the humour shown in the little 'doodles' along the margins. These little drawings and artworks were called Drolleries and were often mischievous, seemingly random and often downright odd. The ones I particularly like are those featuring hares or rabbits which often depict these usually gentle and timid creatures in violent war-like scenarios.
In a role-reversal it’s the hares that are the dominant force in these scenes, usually attacking or subjugating men but sometimes hounds as well. Others are more light-hearted and we see the hares play instruments, joust, dance, and even conduct religious ceremonies.
So in homage to these historical scribblings I have created my own subversive painting – ‘The Hare thought it merry to chase the Hound’. As I love hounds as much as I do hares there is no violence or bloodshed involved... :)

Heavy grain watercolour paper, pencil, watercolour paint
