Win the 'Beltane Hare'

'Beltane Hare'

Ink and watercolour, approx A5

I've been working so hard on big paintings recently, preparing for an exhibition next month, that I have had very little time for the computer, or anything else! However, there are a dozen more paintings trying to escape from my head, and countless playful ideas that I want to experiment with. So, as a break from the larger, detailed work, and by way of a 'Thank you' to all of you who take the time to read what I write, and are kind enough not to take it personally if I don't always have time to reply to comments (though I read them all, and DO try to answer them all), I thought it was time to offer up a little original.

If you would like to have the chance to win this, you need to post a comment on THIS post, or on my facebook page (link on sidebar), and I will put all the names in the hat and draw a winner next Sunday evening. You could, of course, put a comment in both places, and I guess that means I can put your name in twice! You are also very welcome to share this post, or the facebook post , I'd be very grateful  - however, this is NOT a condition of entering the draw. I hate feeling pressured to share stuff - it can feel horribly spammy - so don't feel obliged at all! 

So, Thank you, and please leave your name if you would like to win the Beltane Hare :) xx

Yes - that'd be lovely to win!

Laume said...

It would probably be terribly rude of me to win this as I've won one of your raffles once before, but I will still put my name in the hat as this is full of so much perfect symbolism for my Beltane this year. <3 And I'm hoping there will be prints available for when we don't win it? :) I know, spammy feels bad, but I think your work is so lovely, I'm more than happy to spread the word for you.

Beautiful. I love the full moon in a watery sky.
We have so many rabbits in the fields here but I haven`t seen a real hare for years.

Julia Guthrie said...

How funny, today I was only thinking how I still needed to purchase some work from you...(I guess I was pondering my 'art' collection by friends).
Well, if I won this I would still want to buy some of course. lol
Beltane hare is beautiful...& it has been a particularly lovely Beltane for us. Nice energy this last week! xx

The Beltane Hare would be very welcome here in Scotland!

It's beautiful Danielle! Count me in! Good luck with your exhibition, I look forward to seeing some sneak previews. And I hope the weather is warming up for you over there. It's cooling down here, I think autumn might actually have arrived, which means my creative muse might also put in an appearance soon...I hope...it doesn't like hot weather!

Valerianna said...

I love the painting... and Jopsy's comment! So, in honor of that...

ME ME!

Virginia said...

I just love reading your posts, and following your family, animals and creative life. THANK YOU for blogging.
I'd love to win one of your lovely watercolours!

Lyra said...

Wonderful! This is such a beautiful piece - I resonate with it very much. <3

Betty said...

Could you put me in the hat please. I love your work and would be so pleased to own something. My mother was a Wiccan and we followed the Pagan calendar, your painting would be a happy reminder of family traditions. Betty

Freyalyn said...

Me! Me! Me! Though I think you ought to make this into little cards before you give it away - they would make lovely 'Happy Spring' cards to greet people with.

Raggle Taggle Gypsy Girl said...

This is a lovely work, but to see it is up for some lucky admirer, is fantastic.......So good luck to everyone and thanxs for your generosity......And I just love Beltaine and I also love hares and the full moon, it is perfect......Over hear it is going into Winter, so it is great to see the celebration of Spring from the other side of the world.......Thank you.......

Velma said...

wishing you good luck on prepping for the show. i know the work will be good, but oh the distractions of spring!

Melody said...

I love it! (it would go nicely with my newly acquired "goat art"...) :)))) And now I just have to go read up on Beltane....

Kath said...

Wow, what a generous giveaway! Saturday was Labyrinth day and we walked the labyrinth here in Glastonbury (it's in the grounds of St Johns church).

Bovey Belle said...

A small synchronicity for me as I was looking at Labyrinths recently, and the ferns unfurling here today. I just need to see a hare, but sadly haven't seen one hereabouts for about 20 years now . . .

A beautiful painting to celebrate Beltane, and needless to say, I would love to win it too.

Gail H. Ragsdale said...

Oh what a wonderful painting!!! Throw my name in the hat also!

Amy said...

I am a HUGE fan of rabbits and enjoy illustrating them myself. It would be an honor to welcome your Beltane Hare to my collection of Treasured Arts. Please add my name to the hat for drawing!!

Heather Williams said...

I've only recently discovered your blog and I'm loving it. The painting is beautiful and I have just the place for it should I be lucky enough to win it!

Laura Miller said...

No-one feels the Hare like you, Danielle. I did not even think of labyrinths for Beltaine: I walked one by accident just days before, until I was doing my late Beltaine reading and realized I was traversing fiery dragon lines, in the dreaming of the Hare. Love, Laura

Heidi said...

I would love to own another piece of your gorgeous work! British Columbia needs another Rookery infusion :)

Pye said...

It would indeed be a great thing to win some of your wonderful Art. But if not, I'll carry on with the pleasure of seeing it on the blog.
Many thanks, I really enjoy it.

Oooo... love this! I've been reading you for a couple of years but this is the first time I've commented... I think. ;0)

A beautiful image! Our youngest daughter's middle name is 'Hara', named for the Goddess who is the hare. Lovely, please please put my name in the hat x

I think the Beltane Hare needs to bring his magic to Oklahoma (in the US). I'll be happy to host him :)

pushkasmarbles said...

I stumbled across your blog today, and I was impressed. So will be following you. Love your Beltane hare, we have hares in the surrounding countryside and they are amazing. :) Ruth

Kit and Kaboodle said...

I'm a big fan of your work, so of course, would be delighted if I were lucky enough to win. That said, I think all of us would feel the same way!

Lovely
My daughter's power animal is a hare and she travels to Canada for a year this summer. It is a beautiful painting and she is a beautiful girl so I will wait to see if it will be a link for us.
Many thanks for your generosity to the universe.

The beautiful Hare Mother guards the entrance to the Hollow Hills for all who walk the spiral path.

With many blessings, thank you
