‘Wild Irish Hare, Spring Forward’


Irish Hare The hare is a beautiful creature, featuring in mythology and in folklore. Sightings at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Annaghmakerrig gave rise to the painting. A walk in Clare inspired the setting. A few years ago I was walking in the Burren near Mullaghmore. I approached what I thought was a carpet of lilac/blue flowers in the limestone and grasses. . . As I drew near the 'carpet' took off- hundreds of tiny moths in a cloud of pale blue. A few yards away another gathering of pale pink covering the ground erupted into flight.
