 We moved into a new home a couple months ago and I wanted to put some art work up that was no so obviously my stuff. I decided to try some abstract since I normally draw girls.
 I picked two foxes playing in the snow. It will be a seasonal thing to put up.
 The background was done in metallic paints and richer, warm tones.

 then I painted over it all with white, cream, black and a touch of blue. I originally wanted this to be more textured but it was my first time doing it and sort of chickened out. Here is a close up of the crouching fox.
