The Fox and The Girl
A new digital painting Mungo and I just finished. This is based on the first time I locked eyes with a fox, who wandered into our back garden in Camden, London, a couple of years ago. It was broad daylight, maybe 2 or 3 pm in the afternoon. I stared at the fox, the fox stared at me, we were only a few metres apart, separated by the kitchen door. Seemed like the staring contest went on for a bit, but it might’ve only been a few seconds. The fox slinked off towards the bushes behind the back fence.
And so they finally sit down together for dinner. Her parents know that at the end of winter she would go back to her cabin in the forest. Of course they hope that she would someday return to make her permanent home in the city, to live closer to them. But deep down in their hearts they know she is doing important work out there, and that she is happy.
And this is the little girl in the forest, working hard, with the animals around her.
my first painting in a long while
