"My Dear 7" is one in a new series of whitetail deer paintings that I have created. I love the idea of taking something that is traditionally masculine and giving it a more feminine design. The blends of colors and knife strokes serve as a nice contrast to the simple navy outline and shading of the buck. This original painting is sure to become a statement piece. And it will also add a fun, yet sophisticated splash of color to the walls of your favorite room.


This painting was created using an impasto method where I applied thickened acrylic paints with palette knives to the background. I just love the beautiful blend of colors and unique texture generated with this technique. Then I used both a palette knife and brush to create the outline of the deer's head. Thinned brown paint was smeared in with my fingers, acting as a stain and allowing the background to show through. "My Deer 7" was created on 24 x 30 gallery wrapped canvas. The background colors continue around the 1.5 inch thick sides to create a seamless look. It is finished with a gloss varnish with a picture wire installed on the back so that it's ready to hang.


If you like this painting but need a different size then just ask! I'm happy to create a similar piece to fit you needs. And, I'm standing by if you have any other questions about my work.


NOTE: The interior photo is simulated and may not show the painting exactly to scale. I recommend that you meausre prior to purchase to ensure this painting fits your wall space.
