Fox and Hare – Archival Print


The story behind the painting is partially influenced by myths I learned in a Native American art history class while in college. Stories of a rabbit known as Matoqehs, a clever trickster and evader of predators. A few of the stories and images would feature Matoqehs smoking a pipe, which was meant to show his relaxed nature even in the midst of his enemies. My rabbit isn’t meant to be Matoqehs, but he is meant to represent a relaxed disposition in the face of danger. Even with the fox nearby he doesn’t stress about a foe can outwit. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

The river scene I painted is a real location in Smoky Mountains Park. You can hike there via the Forney Creek trail, it’s about seven miles from Clingmans Dome and all downhill (which makes the hike back a very noticeable uphill) ⁣⁣⁣⁣

This print is 14×18″, with a one inch white border, and is an edition of 100. Each print is signed, titled, and numbered by the artist. The original has sold but more similar scenes are on the way!
