Meeting You

Wild Survivors Series – Lifelines #1

Mixed Media Project – Wild Survivors Series

Lifelines #1

  • Size (h w d): 58 x 13.5 x 12 in
  • Medium: Oil on Live Edge Cedar – with wood and metal stand
  • Creation Date: July, 2020

This study of a spotted fawn was inspired by a whitetail family visiting just outside the studio. This was painted in translucent layers emerging from the woodgrain. These gentle creatures are well adapted to their surroundings and light on their feet, so they will see you before you notice that they are watching you.

This is the first of a series about wild survivors, especially families.  All of these will be painted into natural wood grain, some on cradled panels and others on live edge salvaged wood.

(Thanks to Arbor Worx Tree Service for providing the beautiful aged wood pieces for the first experimental projects)
