Fox and Lunar Eclipse

Fox and Lunar Eclipse
© Sue Wookey
I've been a very busy bee and have yet another new painting! This is the third painting in my series of animal portraits (the others are Moon Horse and the Listening Hare) and this time the moon is shown entering a beautiful lunar eclipse, echoing the ruddy colour of the fox's coat. The fox is looking straight at us, challenging us to take the two quotes around the border to heart:

Look deep, deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better - Einstein 
All animals except man know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it - Samuel Butler

Limited edition giclee prints are available from my website at Galley Hill Art. If any of you have your eye on the original Fox, he's already going to a good home!
