Very true, instincts play a very large role in every living thing. Great picture.

We had a red fox living in our backyard a few years ago. We found a rabbit body in the front yard, and a few days later we found the head by the mailbox...Haven't seen the red fox since...Lots of stories emerged as to what could have happened to him!

popping in to tell you I miss you! Your latest work is gorgeous as always. I see a lot of sadness...and beauty...

Terrific illo and a great take on the prompt, Adrie! Food, food and more food drives those instincts - and those of all creatures, I 'spose...humans and animals.

Your artwork is simply beautiful,

Thank you for dropping by my blog and leaving such kind words,

I will write this week about further ways of helping, and as you may know Tessa has already commenced one such beautiful project,

May the soft wings of peace surround you and yours, Maithri

another beautiful illo! wonder what life would be like if man operated purely on instinct like a fox does...actually scratch that, the prospect is too scary.

Hi Adrienne,
Just wanted to pop back in and thank you for your comment on my "canned" picture. After I posted my first comment, I looked through your other work (gorgeous!) and realized that we appear to both be inspired by Mucha. Your work after him is wonderful & you inspired me, in turn, to go back and make something more complete from that drawing--thanks! All the best to you~~
