A portrait of elegance. 12″ x 12″. Acrylic on pine. 2021.
There’s nothing quite like watching white-tailed deer soaring through the bush, such graceful movements propel them through spaces you’d think were too dense for them to pass. But the most memorable moments I have with deer, are when they do not spook, when they let me hang around in their space for a little while. I have had so many incredible moments with my local deer lately, this one is a buck that I saw shortly after he shed his antlers for the season last year.
