Deer Woman

wandering through the woods
i met a hunter
he was looking for a buck
good thing my antlers were invisible



  1. I love deer, they look so amazing. They are shy and soft. They only eat plants. Men should not make so much intensive agriculture. We have no choice. Waiting for a better life in heaven. The deer shows us the way to the miracle.

    1. yes, gentle creatures are lovely teachers.
      Thank you Dori.

  2. This is a lovely painting. The red deer in Scotland are magnificent animals and so right in the landscape. I wish humans were so at ease in theirs. The swirly hair is great

    1. Thank you Maureen.
      Yes, imagine a world where people were at ease. Thank you for noting her hair.

  3. Lovely painting..... quite a scary idea!
    I've always been wary of walking in woods when folk with guns are around.

    Thank you Tammie - Happy Tuesday!

    1. Thank you Ruby.
      The hunter I met was kind and caring for me, suggesting I wear more orange so that I am noticed out there.
      But yes, a bit unnerving to be in nature and run into people carrying guns.

  4. Enchanting -- again. I was looking for the deer that live on the island at the ditch yesterday. We may have been a little early. None were sighted, though they tend to be easier to see when the leaves have started to fall. I love those deer and always hope they are somewhat safe there...

    1. Thank you Jeanie.
      I hope you get to see the deer. I love seeing them regularly.

  5. such large eyes, I like them & the idea of a deer woman

    have a lovely day.

    1. yes, such large eyes. Funny deer seem to have large eyes too. But I did not know she would don antlers till late in the piece.
      I think meeting the hunter in the woods inspired the antlers.

  6. i'm glad you had your antlers hidden. beautiful, deer woman.

  7. Whimsical stuff. I am just curious - do you have any first nations ancestry?

    1. Hi David,
      Thank you for your visit and message.
      I don't know of any first nations ancestry. Just have always had an inclination/intimate relationship with nature and also art.

  8. I'm glad Deer Woman is safe from the hunters.
    There is something mystical about this painting, I have been gazing at it.

  9. Ha Tammie,
    Lovely drawing this fantasy figure with antlers

    But as a beautiful woman, look out for the hunter ......
    Wish you a nice weekend ......
