Angie and I went to see Joe Batt’s exhibition yesterday. I was really excited to see his work as I had seen a flyer for the exhibition that had depicted a whimsical ceramic hare in a bright yellow life-jacket. The show was small, but there were more of the wonderful hare figures. My favorite piece was ‘Traveling Hare’ which I drew above. These pieces were also very colourful as Joe had added coloured highlights with coloured pencil; the ‘Traveling Hare’ had a very fetching bright green backpack and pale blue belt.
