Artist's Description

This painting shows what typically would be a mundane human activity, but replacing the people with animals. I was drawn to the idea of using a Rhinoceros and a Fox as they are so different visually in size and texture. The Rhino is large and bully, like an angry business man whereas the little fox is so small and friendly in comparison. It is difficult to believe that the fox could even lift the suit cases up. The edwardian setting adds to the idea of a more delicate era, in which the huge rhinoceros is strolling throught like a bull in a china shop. The delicate monocle on the creature adds to the bizzare spectacle. It was nice painting the two conflicting characters and also the brass fittings on the floor. This digital painting was done in photoshop to A4 size and painted in 2008.
