Maybe it’s because of their warm color and their pointy ears, noses and tails, but I find foxes appealing. This group of foxes starts with a detail from “Laplander”, a tempera painting on brown paper, which I did in art school. Then there’s the tail portion of a wooden toy I made in 1986 and a “faux” tile I painted in my kitchen in the early 90’s. See all of the faux tiles in another post here. Next is a felt purse, which I used to sell as a kit about 10 years ago and then a detail from my 2001 children’s book, In the Heart.

Hope your arm is feeling better.
Your posts cheer my day.
Thanks so much.
Thanks for asking about my arm. I had surgery yesterday and it went very well. They put in a metal plate to hold some bone fragments together. Now airport security will be entertaining.
Oh my surgery! I hope all is well. What a handsome fellow ! I am amazed at all the goodies you have – it’s a fascinating peek at where your art has come from. Thanks so much for sharing !!!
I like your fox collection. We live in an urban neighborhood with foxes! I’m amazed when I hear of foxes here. Neighbors have also seen deer, turkeys, and coyotes! In my backyard I have seen possum, brown snake, and salamander. I particularly admire your tile. I am dreaming about something special to do in our kitchen…This gives me some good ideas. love, Beth
Your foxes are wonderful… If you have not seen Wes Anderson’s film “Fantastic Mr. Fox”, I think you would really enjoy it. It is a visual feast for the eyes and the script is quite delightful. Best wishes for continued good healing.
I’ve seen a preview for “Fantastic Mr. Fox” and plan on seeing it. It does look good and it’s not too slick, which can easily happen with animation.
the foxes are a delight.
