Oh Deer

I painted this sweet little deer on a piece of plastered reclaimed hessian, affixed to an old piece of weatherboard that has been sanded back to reveal years of paint below.

When kids come into my studio at the Abbotsford Convent, I often ask them which of my paintings they like best. Over and over again, they point to the deer. I ask why but no-one ever quite knows – something about the cuteness of the big eyes and head, toy-like spotted body seems to appeal. Anyway, if you are looking for a gift for someone aged ten or under, this could be it.

This piece has been sold.
