A Painting a Day: Red Fox Watercolor

willow fox.jpg

The red fox moves through the willows looking for an errant bird to snag. The spring is so early that he hasn’t even shed his winter coat yet.

But the colors are all about the bloom.

This watercolor is no doubt inspired by the ice storm that continues to bombard us. It’s supposed to go on until Tuesday, and then quit for a day.

Gives a whole new meaning to the old phrase, “April Showers.”

……..Showered with freezing sleet!

This piece is 12×16″ and still available.

About Nancy J. Bailey

Artist, author, bad karaoke singer. Woodsy ragamuffin. Mom of a horse named Clifford who plays fetch and paints with watercolors. He visits libraries and schools with me, to promote literacy and making the world a better place. Yes, he is house trained, no, he doesn't live in my house! I have written three books about Clifford. But my newest book, THE NORTH SIDE OF DOWN, is co-written by my awesome sister Amanda, who has Down syndrome. Her unexpected one-liner wisecracks can always make me laugh. If you make me laugh, you've made my day!
