I have a thing about hares! lots of mythology about them and they are fast! Thsi oen is nearly finished. I wanted to get something of the weather into this one. Also you'll notice my continued love affair with water is still alive and well!
How about this! Katie Brown from East Yorkshire has made a wonderful drawing using one of my designs as inspiration. I love it! Keep up the good work Katie. I really like the composition and the little bugs flying around on the other
