Red Fox Christmas Cards

Preview Image: 

I have some new note card designs for the holidays this year. The first is this watercolor of a Red Fox in snow.

I painted this last Winter after watching this fox run around our yard as a blizzard was coming down. We would spot this one and it's mate every once in a while and wake up to tracks crisscrossing our yard in the mornings.

Printed on sturdy, high quality cardstock with a matte finish. A blank inside lets this work as a Christmas card or a note card for other occasions.

Single cards and boxed sets now available in the shop!

Autumn Gourd watercolor

Saying goodbye to October. Here is a new watercolor, something a bit Autumn themed before I get totally in the mood for Winter and the holidays.
I found this odd little gourd on a farm while pumpkin picking with the family. I've never seen one like this - I had to buy one and bring it home to paint. Painted life size - it's a small gourd and fits in the palm of my hand. I think it is some sort of "crown of thorns" gourd.
This was a fun challenge. I picked one with a nice vine and tendrils. An interesting pattern of different green hues and light speckles.
