This painting is part of a series inspired by an unfortunate accident I had with a deer. Exploring and studying deer habitats and their relationship with humans, I have created six panels on this theme. Visually rich in jewel tone colors, metaphor and symbolism, I explore human interaction with our wildlife neighbors.
