A friend at work is participating in an abseil for charity. To increase her sponsorship money, she is holding a small raffle at the local pub. I said I would paint one of my whacky colourful hares in the hope this could help in the raising of funds for our local hospice. I was so taken by the wonderful colour combo that Laura at createarteveryday had used in her recent abstract work, so I tried to recreate this as best I could with watercolour and pastel. I decided this hare needed a name to match his cause. There will be many people watching this challenge from the ground…they may not be feeling as terrified as those at the top of the tower, but I hope the ‘fearless watchers’ will all be sponsoring all the brave people standing at the top looking down, wondering what they have let themselves in for! …..good luck to all this weekend, it is a great experience once the nerves pass ( I have done it myself, although many years ago).
here is mr hare, ‘fearless watcher’
