Watercolor painting mom and baby deer by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Summer's Bright and Fragile Glow

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 15″h x 21″w, 1991.

This painting of a doe and her fawn was inspired by the abundant Black-tailed deer that often raised their fawns on our forty-acre property on Black Mountain, Siskiyou County, California. I’m not sure why there were so many dear there, but I suspect they felt safer there than in a lot of other places. My husband and I witnessed thirteen generations of dear raised there, so we had the great joy of watching many fawns grow. Because the area had many Oregon White Oak tree clusters, it was common to see the deer browsing among the trees. It was quite beautiful to see, so that is what inspired this painting.
