I've been seeing a lot of foxes on the internet, especially tumblr and I had this drawing spree of foxes a couple of months ago, so I kind of suspected that maybe red fox was my new spirit animal. I talked about my spirit animals before which are wolf and stag deer.
But a couple of days ago I realized the fox is not my spirit animal but my boy's. He had these new socks on that have a red fox on the front and when I mentioned it to my hubby he said there are foxes on the skis as well that he got from our neighbor that day because her kids have already outgrown them.
I was never drawn to foxes before apart from meeting a couple of them crossing the road on two different occasions on my way home at night. This weird attraction started after my boy was born. I even painted a fox for him purely by accident.
When he was only a couple of months old he had this fascination with my paintings on the wall. They seem to sooth him so my hubby said I need to paint one just for him. I wasn't going to paint a whimsical girl for him so after a while I thought of painting a fox which felt right to me. It needed to be colorful for him as my boy was and still is drawn to bright colors, especially orange. So I found an old background and I painted the fox. :)
Paint Party Friday.
