Foxes in flight across a leaf of used tea bag paper. Watercolor, pencil, coloured pencils, acrylic.
Mounted on heavy Saint Armand watercolour paper. Sequins added to denote stars. The writer and natural historian Guo Pu [Jin Dynasty] collected many descriptions of mysterious animals and plants. Of foxes, he said:
At fifty years of age the fox can turn into a human; at a hundred it can know something a thousand miles away; at a thousand years it can communicate with Heaven.Our host this week for the drawing challenge has been Tammie Lee who has given us this magical theme of gossamer. I had a lot of fun with this one and yes, I am aware that the photography is horrible. I'll try to put in much better replacements taken with my daughter's fabulous camera. Pop by Tammie's place to see more gorgeous art with the theme gossamer. Thank you so much for dropping by today. See you soon I hope, Norma, xo
