The fox family…


Our fox encounters started simply by leaving a black garbage back by the steps in our front garden one freezing January evening…When Peter opened the blind the following morning there was garbage everywhere…..we had seen foxes in the neighborhood for the 27 years we have lived here but never in our garden before…We decided to leave a small meal of dog food out and see if it was eaten….Of course it was so the next night we left it again but peeped round the blind and sure enough a beautiful fox was eating it…after a few nights we lifted the blind up and one fox had a badly injured front leg and we didn’t think he would be able to hunt and decided to feed him every evening a small support meal…After a few evenings he brought his family…also hungry souls….This was how we met Leggy….we named the family of five…Mamma, Clippy because he had a bit clipped out of one ear…Cheeky…and Baby….Of course they became regular visitors in the evening and sometimes Leggy would come in the morning for a snack…They were such fun to watch, better than TV and entertained us each night…But Leggy was the most regular and claimed a huge plant pot we have as his own resting place….to be continued….

My artwork is of Leggy…he is the most photographed one….I painted him in the Procreate app on my iPad Pro…
In Topaz fx labs I applied a Daily Texture winter background, the tree stump was from one of my photos…added a grass texture to the foreground and then placed Leggy on the tree Stump….
