"Crow's Revenge"

D.M. Le Bris Copyright 2014

I just finished the last painting for my "Dreamscapes" show.
 I thought I would play with one of Jean de La Fontaine's Fable 
"Le Corbeau et le Renard" The crow and the Fox. 
I always wondered: 
Would the Crow seek revenge after the Fox grabbed his cheese? 
I came up with this.....The fox hunt! 
I had so much fun doing this encaustic painting!
A bit of humor helps!
 It chases away the stress 
after working so hard to get this show ready!

Encaustic on 18" x 18" Birch panel
Bee's wax, colored pigments, India Ink, transfers, burnt shellac
