The mythical Japanese fox is Kitsune.  I always think Kitsune when I paint a fox. There are so many stories surrounding Kitsune who is immortal, magical, and a shapeshifter. No ordinary fox for sure and deeply entrenched in Japanese lore. When a kitsune shapeshifts into the form of a tree, a human or a second moon you might still discover him because of his ‘hoshi no tama’ which he must keep with him at all times. His hoshi no tama is a glowing ball or an iridescent gem which contains his soul. He must keep it with him because without it he will grow powerless and die. In human form, Kitsunes usually wear their hoshi no tamas as amulets, but in fox form, they carry the magical balls in their mouths or fasten them to their tails.

As I walk, as I walk…..the  universe is walking with me.
In beauty it walks before me.
In beauty it walks behind me.
In beauty it walks below me.
In beauty it walks above me.
Beauty is on every side as I walk.
I walk with beauty.

What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.

Fox is playful and quick. Now you see fox….now you don’t. Very magical and intriguing. A trickster.

My neighbor has a wildlife camera mounted in his yard and he gets shots of all the critters who roam through his yard at night. As the photos show there is a large fox who visits. Quite a beauty.
