Bev Doolittle, (born February 10, 1947) is an American artist working mainly in watercolor paints. She creates paintings of the American West that feature themes of Native American life, wild animals, horses, and landscapes.
And what is most puzzling is that she is also a listed Canadian artist whereby the National Gallery of Canada has purchased her works and included her paintings among our permanent collections.
She is the artist most known for her camouflaging artworks, works that have an inner meaning or story, and once discovered, changes what you see before your eyes, forever.
In this painting we have a startled fox recoiling back either from a disappointment from a failed attempt at a meal or something else completely, something sinister.
When we realize what the real story is...how heartbreaking is this realization happening on this snowy path. And then what hits me is how fragile a life is standing before us, how defenceless, how easily killed. And how can we help to save these lives.
In Bev Doolittle's own words..."Camouflaging the arrow was the key here. I purposely made the arrow difficult to see at first glance. You have to work a little to get the key to the puzzle. Once you see it, the story is waiting for you."--Bev Doolittle
