White-Tailed Deer Passing Through on the Way to Their Evening Meal
Painted: 2004 Published: 2004
As the smoke from the surrounding chimneys wafts through the evening air, the deer slowly begin their nightly journey to the corn field just beyond the Lake View Bed and Breakfast. We can see, from the tracks in the snow, that this is their favorite route. The headlights encircling the skating rink tell us that the evening’s entertainment has begun. We can almost hear the muffled laughter and the scraping of skate blades across the ice. Although elements of this painting were inspired by the artist’s imagination, it is a familiar scene in hometowns across America.
