A long held tradition, fox hunting began in part as a way for farmers to protect their stock. As fox populations decreased, the hunt became sport, not to kill, but to "chase." Once the fox goes underground, "gone to ground," the ride ends. This is my contribution to the June photo challenge. I began with an acrylic underpainting thinking I would finish in oils, but I liked the spontaneous look, so I left it. This is a 9 x 12 acrylic on linen. Thanks for looking!
