A red fox stops for a drink of icy cold water. This is one of my favorite wild animals to paint. They are incredibly beautiful, especially in winter landscapes. There is something about that gorgeous red fur that just stands out against the pure white snow. Of course I know that they are not universally loved. We have all heard the phrase, "a fox in the henhouse," and I am certain they deserve that somewhat less than stellar reputation, but when they are in the wild, where they were meant to be, they are amazingly wonderful creatures. Like all of us, they tend to get into trouble when they wander too far from home and go places that they aren't supposed to go.
