A Gentle Fawn

It’s a gray winter day here in Atlanta but spring is just around the corner.  The daffodils and cherry blossoms are already out.   I’ve decided to post a painting that reminds me of spring.  Years ago when I was visiting a friend in the countryside, he took me outside to a grassy area where he showed me a tiny fawn curled up in some tall grasses..  It  must have been just a few days old, it was quite a privilege to witness.

In this painting,  A Gentle Fawn, he is older and walking out of the woods into the sunny meadow as if taking his first tentative steps to independence..  I enjoy painting fawns;  their gentle yet alert quality intrigues me.
