JUST DON'T HESITATE TO EXAGGERATE COLOR AND LIGHT. DON'T WORRY ABOUT TELLING LIES. THE MOST TIRESOME PICTURES ARE THE STUPIDLY TRUTHFUL ONES - Wm Merritt Chase

I'm back in my Northern Arizona studio briefly. In a month I head to Colorado where I'll be artist-in-residence for the Breckenridge Arts District's Tin Shop. This painting is of a Breckenridge fox - they wander around the streets while tourists line up to photograph them. The 16 x 20 isn't quite finished....the body of the fox still needs a bit of rounding out. But at this point, I set a painting aside
for a couple of days before finishing it. By then I've got a pretty good idea of what it needs to be called 'finished.
