Week 2 of Summer of Color 5

1 pink + 1 pink + 1 orange:

I have always felt a connection with the red fox. It was the first animal I saw after my Dad passed, and many live near me now. Sometimes on the way to work, one will pop out of the brush, and it looks at me. I feel it's message... I have always thought about sketching one, so with Kristin's color challenge this week, it seemed like the perfect time.

When I think of a fox I think of it as a severe animal, but this one seems so sweet and cuddly. Nice drawing :-)

I've always felt sorry for the fox, hunted for fun and sport, rather than for food and sustenance. You brought out the best in this adorable creature, and it made me feel good as I read your story and enjoyed your lovely art.

Beautiful Red Fox. How very special for you to have them around you. My daughter believes her father who passed away sends her visits via Lady Bugs. June JOY...

a wonderful fox illustration! I am always interested/fascinated by what the universe presents to us by way of nature. Animal Speak is such a great book on the subject of connections with specific animals/insects/birds.

Great sketch. I love how you used pink and orange instead of the real colors. And they look so natural too.
