From the Gallery: "Backtrack"

My graduate thesis project centered on the ecology of the red fox in north-central Indiana.

I completed this drawing later (1981) and titled it "Backtrack." The image shows a red fox on a small snow-coverd hillock. Traveling downwind, it pauses to determine if a hound or a human is tracking it. The snow-laden breeze, blowing from right to left in the drawing, will bring to the fox the scent of any pursuer.

This edition of 200 signed and numbered photo-lithographs sold out in 1991.
