The hare is one of my favourite wild animals - such a beautiful and sensitive creature with such speed.

I am lucky enough to see them quite often in spring and summer, sprinting across the vast expanses of grassy fields near where I live and once - so exciting - two brown hares boxing together, rolling over and over together.

It's always a little thrill - and such a brief sighting before they're gone.

I've been lucky enough to regularly see a family of hares in the early mornings while walking my previous dog - I once counted seven at once which I thought was amazing.

In this artwork, I wanted to capture the elegance and daintiness of the hare and try to catch a glimpse at the soul behind those beautiful and very private eyes before he takes off at speed into the meadow...

I surrounded my beautiful summer hare with sunshine and a lush green meadow - just how I always picture a hare in my mind.

I love the fresh feeling of nature and the feeling of freedom, strength and energy that the beautiful hare must feel stretching out his legs and sprinting across the countryside at speed. Beautiful!
