“Fox Kit” – Signed Limited Edition Print by Nigelle de Visme
Nigelle tells the story in her own inimitable style:
“In 2012 I went on a weekend retreat with the Benedictine nuns in Stroud – my own Benedictine connection goes back to India in the 80’s. After breakfast I went for a walk down a misty path shadowed by large trees. The mist was one of those in which I could ‘hear’ the dripping moisture. When I turned to retrace my walk to the convent, emerging from of the mist and walking towards me was a very young fox kit. We stopped, we looked at each other for a long long time (it seemed timeless). I thought my heart would melt away! Then it turned, this lovely wild creature, into the hedgerow to continue, I prayed, its wild life long and unharmed.”
After the retreat, and still inspired by her painting “Hare”, Fox Kit came too. There is only one print of it and Nigelle has the original painting.
