Wild Ones

On New Years morning a pretty red fox trotted along the forest edge in our backyard. What a nice surprise! I thought he might be a totem for 2018. While I’m not sure what the Fox’s symbolic meaning is, I associate him with being sly or cunning, so if there are bunnies in the woods they had best beware. I also remembered a book my father read to me as a child named, “The Problem Fox”. It was about an educated little fox if I remember correctly and had charming illustrations. Here’s my painting of the New Years Fox.
