Deer Series

These ink paintings represent a place where reality meets imagination, a significant location that acts as a symbolic sanctuary for me.  As I take my daily walk into the woods, I come to a small clearing, a quiet spot where I can sit and listen to the forest sounds.  It is also a place where there are often signs of deer having bedded down for the night.  They gather in the dusk and disappear with daylight. 

I like to imagine the deer as the gentle spirits of this woodland place.  Unseen, but ever watchful.
