A Foxy Wolf

I am so happy to have my own website and it has really inspired me to work. Last weekend I finished this piece called 'Grasp the Nettle', a further exploration of the Little Red Riding Hood theme that has gripped my imagination for a number of years now. In this version I wanted to replace the wolf with a fox as we do not currently have wild wolves here, they apparently were hunted to extinction in the 1700's though there are plans to reintroduce them in a controlled area in Scotland. A fox is the closest wild animal that we have and I really wanted to mix that orange and red.
