A Moroccan wizard boy puts on a spectacle of sand magic for his Fennec fox onlookers under the mystical stars of the desert sky.
Artist's Notes: This painting was inspired by an urge to explore a desert setting in my art. Specifically I had seen a number of beautiful long-exposure star photos taken in various deserts around the world. This is my attempt to combine that idea with my usual 'magic realism' twist on things. I couldn't resist the urge to add the Fennecs in the foreground, as they added another layer of depth to the scene -plus they are just so darn cute.
