In The Shadows
Hiding at the edge, in the shadows of trees and leaves a young fox cub sits concealed. He softly watches his surroundings, curios but tentative he waits to make sure all is safe. As he does a burst of light escapes from the clouds above, sending its glow over the shadows. Now the foxes face has become exposed, and his amber fur seemingly radiates in the light.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the fox cub, and leaf was achieved through quilting, applique, embroidery, textile techniques. These techniques create the different textures from the amber fur of the fox to the veins of the leaf.
