This Original Oil painting is 14x18" and is framed in a sleek and contemporary dark wood frame. Fantastic Mr. Fox was inspired by a drive home on a winters evening. The road was sheet ice lined with huge snow banks. I had just turned down St. Mary's Lake Road when a fox popped out of the snow out of nowhere and sprinted up the road in front of me. I thought about how cold his feel must have been and preferred to imagine him cosy and in his home. His intense vivid orange colour shone against the white snow even in the dark. Foxes are very mysterious and not commonly seen, I find that inspiring. So of course, I had to paint him.
