"The Allegory of the Fox" from a medieval book of animal lore called The Physiologus. The fox, known to feign sleep in an effort to lure unsuspecting prey, represents evil forces laying hold of the self assured.
I painted this one while going through a tough time at church. In the midst of interpersonal conflict it can be hard to recognize right from wrong - the work of the Spirit from the works of the flesh. This image reminds me of the call to be ever cautious, knowing that great folly may be just around the corner. The title God Help Us hopefully leads viewers to the conclusion that the Lord is our hope and salvation. May Christ continue to challenge the faithful and protect us from the evil one.
