Investigating Wildness

Fox 9×12 mixed media on board

“I am looking for friends. What does that mean — tame?”

“It is an act too often neglected,” said the fox. “It means to establish ties.”

“To establish ties?”

“Just that,” said the fox. “To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world….”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

August Blackbird

Blackbird painted on a 9×12″ wood board using a mix of acrylic gouache, acrylic, pencil, and mediums. I am inspired by the way a garden goes wild and lush at the end of summer. The blackbird knows fall is coming. I appreciate the caution of birds. The painting is of Eden questioned as much as it’s appreciated and enjoyed.

It’s the first of a new series and on sale for $575.00
