The above photos are a few images from a 3 day live painting session. All in aid of a bit of exposure for the new Hilton Hotel near Bankside. Sat at a corner on Southwark street near London Bridge for 11 hours in total, a completely different work environment then usual, but I completed a canvas that depicts the new building and a massive fox…. ‘A FOX? Why is there a fox?’
OH! I’m glad you asked. Well it is a fox themed hotel, and apparently the story goes that the fox was there first customer! As when they were building this new hotel, a fox was found sleeping inside.
The fox is among the most uniquely skilled and ingenious animals of nature. There are various species of fox, but they all share the extreme cleverness and cunning that paved the way for the expression, “sly as a fox.“ Fox urges us to develop the art of camouflage, invisibility, and shape shifting. They are agile, skilled, and unpredictable. Calling someone foxy is not always paying them a compliment, it can also mean that they are tricksters or liars. Words associated with the spirit of the Fox are FEMININE COURAGE, OBSERVATIONAL, CUNNING, SPEED, STEALTH. —-> progress shots
