Just like the title says: A red fox and two gold birds with entwining tails.

Original measures 11 × 15″ and was created with oil pastels, colored pencils, art pens and paint pens on brown watercolor paper.

Having a great love animals, fairytales, and world mythology, Pennsylvania artist Lynnette Shelley fuses these influences into her strikingly unique illustrations. Her artwork strikes a primal chord in many viewers, with almost Jungian associations to the colors and shapes. Her artworks have been likened to images from an undiscovered ancient civilization or culture.

    Lynnette, Do you do like one a minute? I can’t keep up! This one is interesting with the stark clash of textures. I feel compelled to add stronger outlines on the fox’s features, kinda like stained glass to bring him back in.But that is just how my minds eye works. Another great one. Love his eyes!Cheers, RVG

  • Hm. You may be right. I’ll see if I can’t tweak it a little

    Gorgeous- I love foxes xx

  • Thank you. Actually, I just reworked this piece earlier today and am going to scan it and re-upload here again. I think it looks better (Defined the fox more, brightened up the silver in the background)

    Your husband has a good eye. I always think about color, texture, composition and feel when I look at art. Your art always has these locked in pretty good. I was just thinking out loud. If I helped then,,,,good. Keep up the hard work. It really seems as if you put out at least one a day. I admire the work ethic. As for the art show, you have so many good ones. How would you choose? I wish you luck on that July show. Cheers, RVG

  • oh well the art show is a juried one at a gallery and I can submit two works. I am helped somewhat in that I have a very large art show coming up in September that I will have 30-plus works at. So I don’t want to bring any of those to this show. So I am debating about what to bring (also thinking of prices). I am thinking of bringing one large piece and one medium or possibly small piece. Large one I am thinking about is “The Whale”. That seems to get a positive response on my various online art galleries. And then for the medium or small piece I am thinking of either the above one, “Icon III: The Rabbit” or possibly “The Monkey”.

    Lynette, I have a dear friend with a gallery in Georgetown (DC) and she has had a prepoderance of female artists. If you can get to DC this might be an opportunity. I think she books months in advance, but that allows allows time to prep. try Cheers,RVG

  • Thanks. Do me a favor and email me her contact info and name to DC is about three hours away from me, so it’s not too great a distance for me if the gallery seems like a good place to be (i.e. good for exposure or sales)

    There are so many influences here and yet you seem to be able to weave them all into a recognisable style of your own. Being British, I instantly spotted the Celtic influence, but I also see First Nation American art in there somewhere. I can empathise with the excitement you feel from viewing the colourful works of Kahlo, Blake, Van Gogh and Munch, as they are among my own favourites. My three visits to Spain influenced me where colour is concerned; particularly the work of Gaudi and Picasso.

  • Hi Dave. You are certainly right. I am very much influenced by celtic art (I am half Irish – mom is from Dublin – and learning about the art forms over there was a major influence in my artistic life) but I also like a lot of “native” works from various cultures. Lucky you to get to go to Spain. Must have been wonderful.
