Mule Deer In Aspen

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 24″h x 36″w, 1987.

While hiking in the Sweetwater Mountains near Bridgeport, California, I wandered past this mature aspen grove. Some of the aspens were amazingly huge so I decided to do a painting of the grove. I had also seen many Mule Deer amid the aspen, so I combined deer with aspen to create this lovely painting. The painting Wildlife and Environmental Art Show, 1987, Los Angeles Audubon Society, Los Angeles, California, (Best of Show and Morris and Perron Merit Award), and was published in a limited edition by Wild Wings Publishing.

Original is sold.
