Hare or Rabbit

copyright Barbara Di Lella Snowshoe Hare drawing in progress 2015
Do you remember all the rabbits I was drawing last year? None of them spoke to me and I ended up abandoning all of them. Sometimes, I find, it's best just to leave things alone for a while, stop fussing and just let it meld. 
After doing the bison and then the squirrel, I was looking through some of the drawings in my book and came upon all those old rabbits. There were quite a few, for sure. And then this guy just popped out of my head/hand and pencil.
I have to say, I think I have more of an affinity for hares than rabbits. And Snowshoe Hares are definitely full of character with their big feet.
