The rabbit as well as the hare have been associated with moon deities and may signify rebirth or resurrection. They may also be symbols of fertility or sensuality, and they appear in depictions of hunting and spring scenes in the Labours of the Months.
While painting this I wanted to capture the power and grace of the Hare, working with each stroke of the brush to bring life forward.
Giving the background a moody charcoal and warm feel it sets the Hare forward.
