The Fox by M.L.Holton

... It's always fun to look back at older paintings to see what has and hasn't changed in the way that I paint. I remember painting this one back in 2011.

There was a secretive and beautiful fox that lived at the front of the property, in a den in the lakefront bank. In the eight years that I lived there, I only saw the fox twice. Once, during the early part of my residence, and once, near the end.  During the intervening eight years, I was always aware that the fox was there ... secretive ... and beautiful.

Seems a fitting image to welcome Autumn, 2017 ...
