Woodland Advent #1

Dec 1.
Greetings December, you feel so different already.
 I overslept dreaming of foxes when my own fox-dog Pearl awoke me with her "something is out there" talk. You see, she sleeps by my head on the big pillows meant for reading. She is my guardian. She looks like a gray fox. Husband and I sat up and looked out the
window to see a real live fox, majestically posing in the drive, flanked by dark twisted oak limbs, in the halflit blue of early morning.  The fox and I locked eyes, then suddenly I knew what I am doing for Advent this Christmas...make a drawing each day of something magical I see outside. My drawing hand is rusty and in need of an assignment. I look forward to tomorrow...I'm going into the woods up the creek bed to forage greens.  I wonder what I will see?

I can just picture the limitless inspiration around you right now. Looking forward to seeing what you see everyday. This fox looks very aware and unafraid. I like!

It's an amazing drawing, Stephanie; really, really like it. I've never seen a fox, or a bear, or a wolf... although the wood is near. Some day!

I love your little fox. Can't wait to see the rest. What did you use - ink? watercolor? It is hard to tell but I love the outcome!
