Artist Statement: The reclusive red fox is a challenge to observe in the wild. Chance encounters are thrilling, but typically brief with this wary and shy subject. They are one of the most colorful North American mammals, and always a joy to depict as they create a strong focal point in a composition. The foxes inquisitive expression in "Resounding Red" was my primary inspiration for this work.
