White Tailed Deer Family
Digital Art - Digital Painting
Formal Title: "Are We There Yet?"
On a cold and overcast day in early December, a few snow flurries drift in the air. A family of white tailed deer travel through the North American wilderness and have come to a wide field. The father, a buck with huge antlers stands tall scanning the clearing. One of the fawns mimics him looking off in another direction. Meanwhile, the doe looks at the other young deer who frolics in the grass and approaches his mother as if to ask: "Are we there yet?".
I was hiking in along a private neighborhood trail a few days ago (December of 2020) in the mountains a few hours north of Atlanta. Georgia Decembers can be a little weird weather-wise with one day being warm enough to wear shorts, the next being cold enough to snow. It was sprinkling slightly for my walk, but it was chilly enough to wonder if it would snow in the next day or two. The end of the trail opens up into a grassy clearing. When I got there, I found about a dozen deer milling about. They noticed me pretty quickly and took off into the woods on the far side. the encounter gave me the the idea to make this artwork.
Thanks for looking,
