This print is of a large oil painting, inspired by the foxes that live in the hawthorn scrub of a narrow dean at the bottom of my garden.
This fox is not hunting particlularly, but has just stopped to check out a sound or a movement in the dead grasses. He is probably well-fed as I have recently lost two of my chickens to him! I do not begrudge him that. He has as much right to be here and to feed himself as do I, and it is my decision to allow my hens to roam free rather than to have them locked up in a cage – they just have to take their chances.
