HAND-PAINTED on Stretched Canvas
Acrylic, Ink, Sharpie, 16” x 12”
The final canvas of four for the Fox Family
The fourth in a quadriptych, the negative space on this canvas is filled with eggshell white. The bright orange body of the fox a bold colour iconic to Rawry & Pohly works. A large, disheveled fox ambles, seemingly off-balance as two feet are raised. The dragging tail, ruffled chest hair, and bent ears illustrate the lackadaisical nature of the character.
4/4 of the
fox family set
Pohly and I both love foxes. Originally, he made a cute canvas series following a scruffy looking fox stalking a mouse. The piece was fantastic and I told him to paint it, but it has yet to see the light of day. However, after expressing my deep and unending love for foxes, he finally designed this adorable fox family, which initially ended with momma fox, but after multiple requests poppa fox, inspired by that canvas series of a fox stalking a mouse, was born.
