The symbolism and inspiration:
Melangell's story is reminiscent of a fairy tale, so I used classic fairy tale illustrations for inspiration. She stands sheltered in a Rowan tree (sacred in ancient Wales) while a rabbit gazes out fearlessly from among the folds of her robe. The border is formed of leeks and daffodils (both symbols of Wales). The kneeling prince has a red lion on his cap. Small creatures are visible in the foreground. The horse and hound look on calmly. Three hares are depicted inside a shamrock in deference to her Irish heritage.

 “Good Morning Patricia,

 

Our two rabbits (see attached photo) ‘gave’ my wife Kim your exquisite drawing on Mother’s Day…she loved it and was so taken with the poster. It is so lovely in person—you really did a marvelous creation with that. Thanks for you prompt response and delivery.

 

Best Wishes,”
