Dawn of a Prairie Night (20 by 30" oil on canvas) Collection of Artist
I created this painting during my second year of College. Dusk is the time of day when most animals are very active, I wanted to capture this Mule deer buck out and about on the prairies getting ready for an evening browse perhaps and preparing for the dangers of the night which is coming quite fast. Aside from the obvious in this painting there is a reason for every single object and sense of time in this painting, everything! From the way the grass is blowing to the way the value changes in the sky with the setting sun.
