Purple Hare #1 is an important work in my career. It marks the first time I used these rich purple & blue tones for a wildlife piece. As things turned-out, so liberating was the discovery, that it was to become a gateway into several other works.

I’m particularly fond of how the splotches and splashes lend an air of movement to Purple Hare #1. In addition, I should mention the contrast achieved by the ‘golden eye’ against the purple tones; a real focus point. I’ve always loved the haughtiness of this character; how he looks at us from the corner of his eye, yet retains a cheeky air. Nothings fazes him. He’s seen it all before.
