And away they marched last week…
After five weeks of fairly intensive work, making, painting, more painting and about twenty layers of varnish, Nuk Nuk and the Fairy (titled: Midnight Rambles) were ready to go: Back to the Jack and Jill Foundation’s “Hares on the March” initiative; awaiting exhibition and hopefully a new home!
This was my design:
And this was the final, finished piece (not too far from the design):
Despite several near-heart-attacks when things didn’t go quite to plan, it was hugely enjoyable; I finished (on time- whew) and handed Nuk Nuk over the the UPS delivery man (all the UPS drivers were delivering and collecting the hares in their own voluntary time- thanks to them!)
Looking forward to the exhibition of all 100+ Hares in Dublin in March- I will keep you posted!
