Showing at Arts at Denver, Denver, CO
My latest deer painting. I love happening onto one or more doe just as the morning sun is reaching the meadows on the mountain. They have a delicate, cautious way of stepping as they move through the tall grasses, drawn to finding out who you are they step closer and closer, curiosity trumping fear. I'm glad to know I don't resemble a predator. I've also learned that if you hold completely still they will approach. I move only when their attention is elsewhere. In this way I have been able to get quite close to them! The click of the camera doesn't seem to bother them as they perceive no movement.
