Pensive Fox - original oil painting
Oil on board
Living in Minnesota, we had a lot of foxes pass through our backyard. Sometimes they would curl up under a bush, most of the time they were jogging through the underbrush. I caught a glimpse of this fox passing through and snapped a quick photo. I love how he's looking back over his shoulder. The background is impasto technique with palate knife. This give the painting an impressionist feel.
