CHRISTINE GRAEFE DREWYER BY THE LIGHT OF THE SILVERY MOON
Once in a blue moon, or a silvery one, for that matter, a special relationship, that has no right to exist does… A few years back--four to be exact, I began to leave raw eggs out under a large sycamore tree in my backyard for a fox family that shared my domain. As the Queen of this particular realm, all of my subjects are adored and protected. I can’t rightly say how that blossomed into a full-fledged love affair where Pavy and I – short for Pavlova- referencing Pavlov’s salivating dogs, came to become family for each other. We meet every morning and evening where I often sing “You Are My Sunshine”, or “Buffalo Gals Won’t You Come Out Tonight!” This painting was the result of one frosty December morning when the moon had not quite set, and was shining through the woods behind her, I knew I had to paint it.
