An original mixed-media painting, on stretched canvas
$200.00, (plus $12.00, pack and ship)
This is another of the paintings which I made as a Christmas card design,
but it may have a more lasting appeal than that, for some viewers of the blog.
The original design included a buck deer with a large rack of horns, but I finally
felt that the painting was more satisfying without anything other than the early dawn
light on the snow covered, mountain landscape. So, I decided to use the deer
in a larger painting, and simplified the composition in this painting. As a general
rule, I find that small paintings are more successful if their compositions are very
simple and uncluttered.
