I began enjoying the fruits of my labor in the small flower garden I keep, this end of summer, before the earthquake and hurricanes came. One day I had beautiful hosta, iris and daisies and then one morning, I found stubs of everything! I guessed it was the foraging deer family, which inhabits our bamboo forest at the other side of the creek that runs through the backyard.
Proof positive came at about 4 o'clock one sultry Sunday afternoon. A fawn was mosying along under my dining room window. He looked up as I was snapping him which resulted in the stare down. I had the culprit, guilty as suspected!
This painting and two others were juried into a  show called Art at the Mill in Berryville Va.
