of the forest
apprentice of the wild and native
taught by rain
wind and snow
walks with atmosphere of all
bear and deer
earth and flora
precious path is yours

  6. Can you imagine - I haven't seen a deer yet(only in the zoo)! They live high in the mountains and I live by the river Danube! I like the confidence between the girl and the deer! There's so much warmth and tenderness in your drawing!:)

    Ah, I wonder what your home is like.

    Ces,

    Thank you for your visit and your support!

    Heather,

    Thank you. Fun that so many people have deer as family :-}

    Ms Pie,

    they do belong together.

    Anno,

    I know, those deer can wreck havoc in a garden, so I don't have a garden.

    Kiki,

    Thank you lovely lady!

    Sophia,

  43. I like your Deer Lady, Tammie. A lot! Both the drawing and your poem. I am thinking that you had the poem in mind as you drew the picture. Vice versa?

  44. Thank you all for your lovely and supportive comments. I love sharing with you and getting to see through your thoughts and ideas. Thank you so much!

    Jim,
    sometimes a poem inspires art
    sometimes art inspires a poem and sometimes they inspire one another
    in this case the art inspired the poem

    thanks for asking.

    Wonderful week and Thanksgiving to you all!
    Tammie
