I was inspired by a new style of art when I made this piece. The style of colored pencil and white pen on black paper. As I worked on this piece I started with the idea of a candle flame. The flame slowly unraveled and became a fox why was slowly sinking int the darkness. I think that overall this piece was an expression of being raised up and sinking at the same time. The same way that you can constantly fight to reach the next level only to find a new goal waiting for you to conquer it. Sometimes we don’t win and sometimes it takes us a while to figure that out. We create our own strife and struggle and sometimes that is a beautiful thing, even when we feel like we are falling the entire time. So are you rising or are you sinking? In times like this I like to say I am adrift, as if I am just waiting for the moment that I decide to move one way or the other. Hence the name Fox Adrift.
