Foxy Idea

I’ve seen four foxes near my home in the past two days! I think it must be a sign that I have to create a FOX design for Give A Fig™ Cards with a Conscience. When I contemplate using an animal in my art, I enjoy finding out about its Native American symbolism and/or other cultural significancefox. What does this animal totem signify? From http://www.spiritanimal.info/fox-spirit-animal/: “The fox is often associated with the figure of the trickster, but as a spirit animal, it can also turn into a teacher providing guidance on swiftly finding your way around obstacles. If you follow the fox totem wisdom, you may be called to use or develop quick thinking and adaptability. Responsive, sometimes cunning, this power animal is a great guide when you are facing tricky situations.” Also, “When the fox appears in you life as spirit animal, it encourages action and quick, swift moves. You may be called to take action in a way that shows your adaptability and ability to move quickly through obstacles and resistance.” There’s more to my artwork than meets the eye! Enjoy.
