This Hare has been inspired by my nephew, Sam, who is receiving treatment for Leukaemia. At only two and half, he has spent more than a fifth of his life in hospital and yet he is a little ray of sunshine who always brings a smile to your face. I decided that a Sunflower (Helianthus being the latin name) depicted his 'sunny' disposition perfectly.
I should like to point out that no other hares were harmed in the creation of this piece!!SPONSORED byMarley FlowersDISPLAYED :
