Running With The Hare
Painting - Pastel
Pastel painting on Ingres paper. -a fantasy piece, inspired by the old saying "Running with the Hare and Hunting with the Hounds"
A very old saying, dating back to the fifteenth century, is:
Thou hast a crooked tongue, holding with the hound and running with the hare.
( Running with hare and hunting with the hounds is the deceitful behaviour of one who fights on one side and gives secret help to the other side. )
There are two types of hare found in Ireland - the Brown Hare and the Irish Hare. The Brown Hare came to Ireland from Europe, while the Irish Hare or Blue Hare is native to this country.The blue hare is also found in parts of Scandinavia and Scotland. The Irish Hare does not have a white winter coat. It differs from the brown hare in its stocky build, short ears and white tail. Hares look like rabbits, but are much larger and look taller.
