NEW PAINTING

Triggered by my obsession with the Three Hares I have painted this new oil of Swifts and written a short poem that goes with it, inspired by their amazing ability to fly so far and remain in the air for most of their lives, often only landing to nest. The original can be seen in my Three Hares Gallery in Chagford, plus I also have prints & cards of this painting.

THREE HARES OF CHAGFORD

I now have some lovely new greetings cards of my Three Hares of Chagford painting complete with the poem which is also written on the back, you can get these from my Three Hares Gallery in Chagford or through my website www.threeharesgalleryshop.co.uk

          Once Tinners Rabbits
          Now Hares of Granite
        Their meaning a mystery
            Obscured in history

         Some carved in wood
           Some made of clay
            Some easy to find
           Some hidden away

  The Three Hares of Chagford
        Are there to be found
         Ears joined together
          Round and around

THE HARE

 

This is one of the illustrations & poems in my new THREE HARES book, this poem is called THE HARE
                         Throughout time your features
                          Have been carved and painted
                            Worshipped and protected
                               Adorned and adored
                              Steeped in mythology
                            Beguiling magical Lepus
                         Symbol of rebirth and eternity
                         Yet not blessed with longevity
                               But loved by so many
                              In images immortalised
                             In imagination idealised
                              A touchstone, a healer
                               An enigma, a stealer
                                    Of our hearts
You can see the book in my Three Hares Gallery in Chagford or on my website www.devonsnatureinart.com

Three Hares at Stone Lane Gardens

I took this picture in the Stone Lane Gardens near Chagford, with the late evening sunshine casting long shadows and the three hare sculptures. It is such a beautiful place for a quiet walk around the wonderful collection of Birch & Alder Trees.
