One recent evening I looked out my bedroom window and saw a small group of deer crossing the swamp in the forest behind my house. They moved leisurely, walking through the shallow water, moving up the ridge to the spot where they sleep. Maggie and I discovered the spot a couple of winters ago. In the winter I feel less concerned about ticks and more inclined to explore the woods. I'm sure that's where they were headed.
This is a new painting. The painting and prints of this painting will be available in my Etsy shop soon.
